Why do you want to be a physical therapist?
I have always enjoyed working with people. Having the ability to help an individual through a physical impairment and seeing the physical and emotional improvements is very rewarding
The Physical Therapy program’s emphasis on manual therapy was my initial attraction to DMU, but it was not until my interview day that I knew I wanted to attend. The faculty, technology, and other students make DMU’s environment very conducive to learning. Everyone on campus wants you to be successful.
What do you do when you’re not studying?
When I’m not studying I enjoy running, hunting, and spending time with classmates.
