PT Technician, Laser Technician
I am a 53 year old Physical Therapy Technician. This career was not my first choice in careers. I was a nail technician and owner of my own nail salon “Nothing But Nails” for 14 years. I was forced out of my career due to an allergic reaction to the acrylic product that I used daily. I chose this career due to my health issues and the need to help people. Because of my maturity I am able to relate to the older patients needs and concerns. I want the patients to be relaxed and feel at home…therefore my humor, conversation sometimes makes them laugh and feel better about them self’s.

Why did you choose to become a career in physical therapy?
I was forced to leave my original career as a nail technician due to an allergic reaction to the chemicals that I used on daily basics. I chose to become a Physical Therapy Technician because my daughter was in a serious ATV accident in which she sustained a pan fracture of the face and fractured her back. She was with me four about three months, due to that fact she needed help getting out of bed, showering and dressing her self!!!
