Throughout my career I’ve worked in acute care, rehabilitation, home care, hospital management, and schools. Now as co-owner of a company that helps people focus and be successful through a physical therapy product, I enjoy the full spectrum of what a physical therapy career offers.
Although technical skills are important as a physical therapist, the most important attribute is being able to motivate patients to overcome their physical issues. For adults, it requires being a positive, empathetic cheerleader throughout their rehab journey. For kids, it requires patience and playfulness. If it is not fun, there will be no journey.
Our products are competitively priced for what they offer and are the only ones that have been designed by professionals who keep ergonomics in mind. Our products provide positive long-term effects on students’ health well past their time in the classroom.
I’ve found inventing, manufacturing, and distributing FootFidget® products to be interesting and fulfilling. It has also allowed me to have more time to travel, play golf, and check off items on my bucket list.
I also enjoy living in Florida for eight months of the year, soaking up the sun and enjoying lots of outdoor activities.
