Personal Statement:
As a DPT student, I have become very interested in women’s health/pelvic health PT through various learning experiences and a graduate assistantship with a professor who is a board certified specialist in women’s health. Through this experience, I have learned just how much work there is to do to educate the public and even our colleagues in the area of pelvic health/women’s health. I see this as a significant advocacy opportunity for me locally, nationally, and globally. In 2019, I am doing my clinical internship in women’s health PT under a clinical instructor with her WCS and plan to take the SoWH Level 1 and Level 2 Pelvic Health courses. I plan to use my past and future opportunities to grow as a SPT in order to further my knowledge in this area and advocate for the profession and for women’s health. Our student colleagues need more opportunities to learn about the amazing field of women’s/pelvic health! In addition to my passion to advocate and spread the word for our profession, I am very organized, punctual, and manage my time well. In my graduate assistantship, I help with logistics of the pro bono women’s health clinic at my university and work directly under my professor who treats women and men who are underinsured that are in need of skilled PT services for different pelvic health impairments. All of these attributes combined with my current and past leadership experiences make me a great candidate for the SSIG secretary position for the SoWH! I believe the Section on Women’s Health is a dynamic organization, growing and changing…not just in the name! This organization is becoming more well known nationally and internationally and I hope to help further this process in order for people receive the care that they need and deserve
