A good day at work is meeting new people and providing direction for their recovery, while sharing in the success of returning patients. 

The best part of my job is helping people return to pain free function and pursuit of recreational activities. I enjoy problem solving with people and utilizing an eclectic approach in achieving their goals.

The best thing about CPR is it's dedication to employee's growth and development, which ultimately provides the best care to our community.

A good weekend includes spending quality time with family, exercise, cooking, eating, time outdoors, reading, big breakfasts, church, and drinking decaffeinated coffee.

Something that might surprise you about me is that I ate a whole bear in one semester while in undergrad (wouldn't do it again).

Four quick facts:

  1. I enjoy audiobooks.

  4. I once rode in bicycle race, "Le Tour de Donut" and still wish I would've eaten more donuts.
