How I became an Olympic PT
This was my goal when I decided to pursue a career in physical therapy. During my schooling, I hooked up with a sports medicine network volunteering at local USA Swim Meets. Then I was able to get a USA Swimming Sports Medicine and Science Internship. This opened the doors for me to assist at national competitions. I worked my way up to being selected to attend the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Training Camps. Tokyo was my first on-site Olympics experience as a physical therapist. I had such a great time. It was such a pleasure and an honor to work on the USA Olympic Swimming Team.
