Professional Goal Statement

My professional goal is to continue to evolve and grow as a well-rounded generalist who is able to holistically manage a variety of movement diagnoses across the lifespan. In particular, I plan to continue honing my ability to manage biopsychosocial factors that complicate patients’ prognosis. Furthermore, I aspire to improve equitable access to preventative health care services by increasing awareness for the role of physical therapy in upstream care and health-care-cost containment for both individuals and insurance companies. Throughout my career, I intend to use my curiosity, creativity, and communication skills to advance the profession and enhance the quality of care I provide to my patients.

Reflective Statement

Over the past three years, I have come full circle from feeling unsure of my direction in the field of physical therapy to feeling passionate about a multitude of PT practice areas and issues. I am grateful to have received a generalist education at UNC, which has allowed me to pursue all of my interests and curiosities. These include pelvic health, pediatrics, chronic pain management, neuroplasticity, health care policy, and more. Although I plan to continue growing my generalist mindset, my next challenge will be to narrow my focus and direction. As I enter the workforce, I will stay flexible, keep an open mind to opportunities, and begin to pursue whatever path feels most fulfilling in that it best allows me to affect positive changes for my patients, the profession, and/or society at large.
