LOOKING BACK TO LOOK FORWARD MY JOURNEY IN PT

Over the last several years as a physical therapist at the Sudbury location, I’ve had the pleasure of investing myself in our community. We’ve been able to help a lot of people here, including athletes, farmers, and grandmothers. At the end of the day, that’s why I do what I do. Since I joined the team here right out of graduate school, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside our staff of dedicated sports physical therapists. They’ve taught me that there’s a smile in every patient’s story and a laugh to be had with each patient we treat. That’s what makes Achieve PT so special. Keeping our patients with the same physical therapist throughout their entire plan of care allows us to get to know our patients and send them away better than how they came to us. Whether it’s something as simple as a sprained ankle or something as complicated as recovering from an ACL reconstruction, we will work tirelessly to develop a specialized recovery plan that addresses your specific goals. in medicine. Over the course of my upbringing, I decided that I’d really enjoy working with athletes in particular. As a multisport athlete myself in hockey and soccer, I knew just how much an injury could jeopardize an athlete’s quality of life. It was during those playing years that I came to know the staff here at Achieve PT. At one point, my brother Growing up in nearby Littleton, I always knew I wanted to do something

suffered a knee injury, so I spent plenty of days tagging along as he went to his appointments here. It was from those experiences that I learned what the day-to-day operations looked like for a physical therapist at Achieve PT. That’s when I decided that I would enjoy being a sports physical therapist because I would get to work toward the common goal of getting people back to the life they love. After I got my doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree from UMass Lowell, I immediately set about starting my career at Achieve PT. I fell in love with my position on the first day I walked through those doors. One thing that sets us apart from other clinics is our commitment to personal and professional development. When I started here, I was fortunate enough to work with several veteran physical therapists who took me under their wing and mentored me. Those caring relationships allowed me to hone my skills as I worked with some of the finest athletes and citizens our great area has to offer. If I had any downtime, I always looked for opportunities to assist my fellow physical therapists who were caring for patients. I still do that to this day, and my coworkers support me in the same way. I continue to take pride in being part of an upbeat and supportive team that works together to see a patient through from their first day in treatment to their last.

Today, I still have that same love for physical therapy and my job at Achieve PT. I stay active by playing hockey and spend my free time golfing and fishing with friends. My two dogs are always by my side, too. Right now, I’m pretty busy enjoying our summer while we still have it in this beautiful part of Massachusetts I call home. When I’m not working with patients or enjoying my free time, my fiancée and I are hard at work planning our wedding to be held in September 2020. My one brother spends his days as a professional hockey player — how boring, I know — while the other one spends his days serving our country as a Marine. In the end, my family at home and my family at work try to do whatever they can to help people in any way possible.
