OK, here we go... It’s September 1999. I am 24 years old, standing at JFK with $200 in my pocket, wondering about this new adventure. I had no idea about the challenge or how it would turn out.
And it turned out awesome!!! After living in New York for a while, I moved to Florida and then to Illinois. I was able to transfer my physical therapist diploma, pass the Illinois board exam, and became licensed physical therapist in 2006. On a more personal note, I also got married to my husband Jim and we welcomed our son Vincent in 2007.
Since moving to Illinois, I have worked at Good Shepherd Hospital and Alpine Family Physicians for the past ten years. During that time, I also worked as an independent contractor for various orthopedic physician groups, family practices, and neurologists. It gave me good understanding of how physical therapy operates in various settings. It also provided me with the opportunity to take lots of continuing education courses and helped me clearly define the type of therapy I wanted to provide for my patients. I am so grateful for all the wonderful opportunities being a physical therapist has brought me. I loved every minute of it!!
But I wanted more. I wanted a place where I could develop personal connections with my patients, where we could spend as much time as we needed and where patients were in charge of their treatment.
So in 2016 I opened Health in Motion. The foundation of the clinic is the belief that given the right tools a body can recover and heal. I hope this to be a place where you will feel comfortable, cared for, get effective results, and have an overall positive experience.
Welcome to Health in Motion!!!
