Don't stumble over something behind you.
Why did you start your business?
I knew for a long time that I wanted to be a Physical Therapist. In High School, loved sports and athletics. I also had a love for medicine and then found that I could combine the two. After working for 2 other practices over the course of 6 years, I realized that there were things I wanted to do differently and to put my own spin on things by being more inventive and using hands-on types of treatments.
Biggest Achievement so far.....
My biggest achievement has been the opportunity to start my office locally in Port Washington and to build a practice here. I love working with people I know and offering my services to this community, especially after leaving a NYC location where I had been practicing for so many years.

Greatest Lesson Learned....
You are constantly learning something new. Hard work is always a part of the journey, no matter what stage you're at.
Person, Place or Thing that inspires you
The people that have taught me over the years are people I admire and have learned so much from.
Words to Foster others....
If you have a dream, follow it, don't give up, even if it seems unattainable at the time. If it's something you're truly passionate about, it will have a way of working out.
