Kenna’s introduction to physical therapy was as a young athlete competing in figure skating. She received physical therapy for various injuries, but she did not consider it as a career until she was in college. She had the opportunity to work with a physical therapist as an aide and she was able to experience how uniquely PT blends concepts of physical medicine with rehabilitation. She really enjoys the individual nature of therapy and the challenge of tailoring each person’s treatment to his or her specific needs. Her intent is to help empower people to make positive changes in their physical health, to improve their daily movement and function, and to have hope in recovery from illness or injury. Kenna loves being in a profession where she can continuously learn from her patients and colleagues.
