What do you do at Lilly PT?
I am working to the best of my abilities to help my patients get better by listening and attending to their physical and emotional needs. One of my priorities is creating a unique healing oasis for those suffering from pain or injury so their bodies can unlock their true healing potential. I perform a lot of “hands-on” treatments because I have learned from experience that manual therapy in conjunction with other treatments give the best results.
What are some things you believe in? What is a favorite quote or some words of wisdom?
I have always believed that the purpose of our life is to discover our true passion so we can live the life we love. To me, the purpose came from the open heart perspective that gave me the courage to love, listen, understand and connect. This placed me on the path of continual growth with a mission to stand out, lead, be different, and make a difference in this world.
What are some of your personal interests, outside of work?
Gardening, cooking for friends and family, traveling, painting, and reading are favorite hobbies of mine. I also love spending time with my family, walking around Richmond Beach, and playing with my Bichon Frise dogs. In addition to that, I have twin teenage girls that make sure my life never gets boring.
Traveling to third world countries to serve, treat, and educate has provided me with powerful experiences that have helped me gain an appreciation and better understanding for people and their universal needs.
What do you think patents like MOST about you?
I have been told that I seem to TRULY care about them, and I do. Care matters a lot to my patients and it creates a world of a difference. In my career, I have seen over 30,000 patients and they all say that the characteristic of caring is what they like most about me.
