Q: Where did you grow up? A: I grew up in Sidney, Ohio, a small town an hour north of Dayton. I grew up with my two older sisters, Jenny and Emily. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Dayton and attended Ohio University for physical therapy school, GO BOBCATS! Q: What do you like to do when not fixing people in physical therapy? A: I enjoy hiking, reading, knitting, exploring new places to eat, and most of all spending time with my family, especially my two little nieces, Ellie and Jane.

Q: What is a unique fact that not everyone knows about you? A: When my sisters and I were younger, we would take an annual picture with the largest zucchini in my grandpa’s garden. Q: Favorite food? A: I lived in Kansas City for a little over 2 years, so my love of BBQ has grown exponentially! Q: What do you like best about working at ZPT? A: The people! It is rewarding to work in a fun and positive clinic where everyone shares the collective goal of getting our clients back to “fighting form.” Working in a small town creates an enjoyable atmosphere where you are not just another number, but everybody truly does know your name.
