As an early professional only three years out of school, I want to be involved with this exciting new SIG to motivate other recently graduated therapists. I have been involved with the SOWH since I was a first year student, ultimately becoming the SOWH student president, and then a member of the Name Change Task Force. I balance my volunteer work with my other passion of being a pelvic physical therapist business owner and managing a thriving outpatient practice on the Jersey shore. My vision for the early professional SIG is to create a community of recent graduates to get more involved in the SOWH, as well as continue to grow as physical therapists and entrepreneurs. I would like to establish an online community, as well as meetings at conferences to foster relationships within the early professional community. I would also like to create a resource packet for the early professional to assist with the transition from student to clinician. As a former SSIG president, and as a business owner, I have the leadership skills to shape this new group and be a trail blazer for early professionals.
