18 Feb 005. Kristina, Former Collegiate Volleyball Player and Current Physical Therapy Student, On Overcoming Adversity in Rehab, Sport, and Graduate School
Kristina has a unique story that has brought her towards her passion to help people as she pursues a career as a physical therapist. This is one of those conversations that provides invaluable insights of what it is like to overcome injuries as an athlete, the hard work and persistence required when going through rehab, and how things come full circle when you pursue your passion to help others in ways that you received help. We discuss a little bit of everything from her athletic career to the demands of her physical therapy program. It’s a pleasure to work with Kris and see her continued growth throughout the years. We wish her the best as she completes the second half of her doctorate program. Enjoy the episode!
