Zhana Kauffman, Front Desk Coordinator

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland and have lived in Severna Park for most of my life. I graduated from Old Mill High School in 2014 and went on to study Biobehavioral Health at Penn State. After a year and a half I transferred to the University of Maryland to study Behavioral and Community Health. I have always been interested in healthcare and making sure treatment is accessible to everyone.

In high school I was in and out of physical therapy because of back and shoulder injuries that I got during my time cheerleading.  I was so fascinated during my time doing physical therapy that I wanted to become a physical therapist. Even though that’s not what I eventually went on to study I was still focused on the healthcare field. I think it’s fate that I ended up in a physical therapy office! I enjoy the administrative duties of this job but I also love being able to make sure people are being treated so they can feel better and get back to their lives!

Outside of work I love spending time with my two Yorkshire Terriers- Daphne and Scrappy. I’m always looking forward to the next time I can go to a concert and listen to my favorite artists. Some of my favorite shows attended so far include: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Paramore, and The Arctic Monkeys! I’m also very into TV and movies. I love the whole MCU, John Hughes 80’s teens movies, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Mad Men, Parks & Rec, and The Office. Besides that, I’ve always wanted to travel all over and in the future I hope to be able to see all that the world has to offer!
