Kirsten, a 33-year-old mother of two, was seeking a career change when she discovered the Physical Therapist Assistant program at P.I.T. Her interest in physical therapy was sparked by her cousin’s recovery after a car accident.

Reflecting on her time at P.I.T., Kirsten expressed her appreciation for the hands-on learning experience, small class sizes, and approachable professors who were always available for extra assistance. She remarked, “Everyone is so personable!”

Upon graduating, Kirsten plans to work with either pediatric or geriatric patients in a hospital or home care setting. She exclaimed, “I’m thrilled to have found my calling in the field of Physical Therapy!” Outside of class and open lab, Kirsten enjoys playing sports and staying active with her children.
