Front Desk Coordinator
I graduated from USC with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in May 2018. I’m from this city of dreams we call Columbia. Growing up I did Karate, soccer, swimming, basketball, and softball, so I was always active. I still am, so seeing how active the therapists at Vertex are (themselves) and with their patients makes me excited about my future in Physical Therapy. I interned at Vertex in college and learned a lot about the human body and what quality patient care looked like.
I’ve always loved helping those that are hurting. It wasn’t until high school when I got injured playing soccer that I realized I wanted to help others with similar injuries. I’m taking a gap year before I start grad school and am working at the best Physical Therapy clinic around!
Front Desk Coordinator
I recently graduated from UofSC with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Exercise Science. I’m from a little town called Ridgeland, SC where I went to Thomas Heyward Academy. I played sports all throughout high school such as football, basketball, and baseball. After I graduated, I quickly became intrigued with CrossFit because it gave me an outlet to continue being active with a little bit of friendly competition as well. Through CrossFit I became interested in physical therapy because I was fascinated by how our bodies can adapt and be transformed through consistent overload. I saw this first hand when I was an intern at Vertex this past summer! I could see how every therapist there makes such a big impact on their patient’s lives just by helping them change their body. I aspire to be like them as I pursue an acceptance into physical therapy school! In the meantime, come see us at Vertex Irmo
