Hi everyone! My name is Krysten Ritter, and I am a physical therapy assistant at Vital Care Physical Therapy. I am so excited to share a little bit about my life with you! Although I have only been with Vital Care for about five months now, I feel like I’ve known the team and our patients for a lifetime. I graduated from Gateway Community College about seven years ago with my associates degree. Then, I immediately earned a job at a skilled nursing facility. Most of what I did was neuro-based, which was very interesting to learn and treat, but I was ready to move forward to expand my physical therapy skills and knowledge. Working at Vital Care has been a dream. Not only have I been able to develop my hands- on skills immensely these past few months, Vital Care Patients ENTER TO WIN Find the misspelled word in this newsletter and call (623) 544-0300 for your chance to win a $10 gift card!

sweethearts, and we’ve been together since we were 16 and 14 years old! We’ve been married for four years now, and we have a sweet 2-year-old son named Everett David. We also have a bloodhound named Luke Skywalker. As a family, we like to take Everett to the park and indoor playgrounds. He’s very active, so he loves being able to run around and burn energy. When Brad and I have a moment alone, we enjoy touring local breweries to find good beer and food. In my free time, I sell a makeup line called Younique. It’s a fairly new company that’s only been around for five years, and I’ve been selling for two years now. Since it’s a side job, I sell when I can, and I really enjoy the opportunity to meet new people and introduce them to a wonderful product. I am looking forward to getting to know more patients this year. Please don’t hesitate to say hello and introduce yourself the next time you are in. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. We will see you soon! “I am incredibly happy to be working with a team of people who challenge, educate, and encourage me every day, and I can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes me.”

but I have also been given the opportunity to advance my education. In the near future, I plan on becoming certified in kinesio taping and lymphedema management so that I can be of more help to my team and treat a wider range of patients. I think one of the reasons I am so happy to be working at Vital Care is that I’ve had my eye on the clinic for a while. There is a reason why Vital Care has been so successful in Surprise, and I wanted to be a part of this stellar team for some time. I had actually been searching for a new job during the last three years of my employment at the skilled nursing facility, and at the very beginning of my job search, Vital Care crossed my radar. However, the timing wasn’t right, so I decided to stay at the facility and wait for another opportunity. Thankfully, my patience paid off, and I was able to interview for the assistant position that opened up this past summer. I am incredibly happy to be working with a team of people who challenge, educate, and encourage me every day, and I can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes me. Originally, I am from Phoenix, which is where I met my husband Brad, who works as a diesel mechanic. Brad and I are actually high school
