BScPT ACC  (she/her)

 

1. Why did you become a Physical Therapist?

I tried Medicine for a few years, got into dentistry and hated it because I could not interact with patients as much. Decided to try Physical Therapy (1997) only to fall in love with the profession. It makes my day to observe patient’s progress and to follow the patient’s journey, regaining function and quality of life. It has been almost 20 years since I graduated in BSc PT in Brazil.

 

2. What do you like about working at CURA?

CURA has an amazing team of professionals, very experienced and knowledgeable. I like the opportunity to work with a holistic focus and think “outside” of the physical therapy textbooks.

 

3. What brings you joy? What inspires you?

Living a life with mindfulness and staying in the “present” time, enjoying every life’s invitation for self growth. I am inspired by people who overcome challenges in their life, with the ability to transform the stone into a diamond by taking each day at a time but never giving up.

 

4. What have you done to manage the pandemic?

By focusing on the positive aspects of the pandemic (there were a few) and taking the time to reconnect to myself.
