Spending time with my family, painting, going to concerts with friends and doing make up is what I love to do in my spare time. I currently live in Middle River, Maryland. I plan on entering a Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2019 so I can achieve my aspirations of becoming a physical therapist for those with special needs. I have been a tech in facilities that treat many things such as vestibular dysfunction, pelvic health, post-surgery, sports and more. I love working at Atlas PT not only because I learn from the physical therapists and get to help people but the overall atmosphere is great and everyone is treated like family!

I was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up not too far from the area in Prince George’s County, Maryland with my parents and older brother. I attended Dr. Henry A. Wise High School where I participated in several extracurricular activities such as photography club and a girls mentoring group. After graduating, I went on to attend Morgan State University in Baltimore. This was my first experience living on my own, away from my parents! I originally wanted to pursue a career in Business Management thinking this was the most practical choice with many job opportunities. After being able to explore myself and what I liked, I knew a job in the health field was the best fit for me. My passion for helping people was inspired from my mother at a very young age. Being the oldest sibling in her family, she helped with the care of her parents and other close relatives when they fell ill and I was eager to help out in any way that I could. 

A career in Physical Therapy rose to the top of my list after thorough research. I promptly changed my major and began to join clubs pertaining to PT, such as the Health Club and Physical Therapy Club, where I served as Secretary. We held many information sessions for the students on campus to promote good health. During my final semester, I started my first internship in the physical therapy field where I fell in love with the profession. Being a part of a patient’s recovery was my favorite part. From their first day of treatment being nervous and in pain, to their last day where many patients leave confident and able to get back to normal activities. In May 2016, I graduated from Morgan State University with a B.S. in Physical Education and a concentration in Pre-Professional Physical Therapy, getting me that much closer to my dream!
