Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“I came to work at HCMC after physical therapy school to get the two years of experience in acute care that I was told would help me go into sports medicine. That was over 30 years ago, and I am still here! I have discovered that my passion has been found working in acute care, especially in burn rehabilitation. I am amazed by the fortitude and spirit our patients have. I have been honored to care for them, help them gain function, and carry on in their lives.”
