Outside of work he enjoys gaming, thrifting, listening to podcasts and hanging with friends at local breweries.
“Prior to Fusion I had never worked in a clinical setting before and was very nervous. During my first couple of weeks as a Tech, all of the staff here were very inviting and my nerves were easing away in no time.
This company is like no other I’ve worked for! There is a perfect balance of professionalism, kindness, humor and humility in the air at all times and it has cultivated a great working environment.
Our therapists are full of knowledge and I have learned so much just working alongside them for the last couple of months. The patients have given me a gentle push to go back to school with their kind words of wisdom and appreciation for the work I’ve done.
All of the positive reinforcement I receive from my fellow staff members and our patients has given me the motivation to go back to school and pursue my dream of being a PTA.
I plan to finish my prerequisites at Germanna and eventually apply to their PTA program. I have seen Physical Therapy work wonders on my own family members who had multiple surgeries and that is what initially sparked my interest in the field.
I hope to continuing making my own mark on peoples’ lives in the same way, along their health and wellness recovery journeys.”
