Zionsville: Natural Ways To Relieve Arthritis

Getting to Know the Zionsville PT Staff ZPT EMINA ALICUSIC-KARIC, PT, DPT The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body September 2018

Emina joined our staff this summer, having just graduated from Gannon University with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy this past May. Prior to this she earned her Bachelor in Sport and Exercise Science from Gannon University. ZPT was her final clinical rotation, where she “fine tuned” her clinical skills under Katie Poisel’s supervision. Q: What made you first interested in becoming a physical therapist? A: I grew up in Bosna and Herzegovina during the war. At that time, I realized I wanted to help people. Later on, my father passed away from cancer and this solidified my choice in working in the health care field. I chose therapy because I wanted to help people in a positive way and have time to make a real connection with each patient. Q: Where did you grow up? A: I was born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina until I was eight years old, then my family moved to Erie, PA, after the war. I lived there until I moved to Brownsburg, IN, in December, 2017. Q: What do you like most about working at ZPT? A: The amazing family feel and environment. I know each patient gets personalized care because we truly care about each person as a whole. Q: Favorite food?

and we continue to expand our family. I recently got married (December 2017) and added some more amazing family members into the group. Q: Something most people do not know about you? A: I finished high school in 3 years and was the Salutatorian. Q: Hobbies or special interests? A: I love to hang out with my family and friends, watch too much Netflix (just kidding, there is never too much Netflix), and sing the wrong lyrics to each and every song that gets played on the radio! Welcome, Emina, to the ZPT team! Your joyful enthusiasm for caring and treating our patients is contagious. We are eager to introduce you to our community!

A: Bread!! Q: Family?

A: As mentioned before, my father passed away, but I still have my mother, 2 sisters and a brother. We are grateful each day that we have each other
