Kewanee PT &Rehab Specialists Back Story Of NIC INTERIAL, PT
My journey in becoming a Physical Therapist started out very similar to many other professionals working in our field today. As a child, teenager, and young adult much of my life was spent playing sports. Like any other athlete, during the time I spent playing sports, I suffered a few injuries. These injuries allowed me to experience Physical Therapy first hand, which sparked my interest and desire to pursue Physical Therapy as a career. My time spent in Physical Therapy as an athlete had shown me what it meant to be a professional, help others, and be a pillar of your community, which is something I wanted from that point on. It wasn’t until I started my Physical Therapy schooling did a passion develop for human anatomy and its’ application in Physical Therapy. Once this happened, the sky was the limit for me, and I was committed to pursuing and becoming a Physical Therapist whole heartedly. I started my schooling in 2006-2010 at Northern Illinois University where I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training. This gave me the very fortunate opportunity to start my athletic training career here at Kewanee PhysicalTherapy and Rehab Specialists under the supervision of our Physical Therapists. Trying to retain as much information as I could, this valuable experience expanded my knowledge base and provided me with information to use during my Physical Therapy education. In 2012-2015 I continued my higher education in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Northern
Illinois University. I completed my degree in May of 2015 and began my career as a Physical Therapist in August 2015 here at Kewanee Physical Therapy and Rehab Specialists. I feel so very fortunate and blessed to be a part of this profession, providing Physical Therapy to our community, at the standard of care we strive for here in our clinics. Thank you for allowing me to serve all of your physical therapy needs!
