Interview with Amber
Tell us about yourself
I have lived in AZ since finishing my Doctorate at Creighton Medical Center and I love it here! I have two amazing kids who I love spending time with. I enjoy hiking, kayaking and refinishing furniture.
Why did you become a Physical Therapist?
I always knew I wanted to do something in the medical field. I shadowed a PT in high school and loved the one-on-one time she got to spend with her patients. I feel so blessed that there is a place for PT in the pediatric world as I love kids.
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being Imaginative?
I’m pretty silly. Through the years I look for ways to keep my patients involved in sessions, and almost always have a toy on my head as a motivator. Just because something drives one person to succeed, it may be very different for the next; and this is even more true with kids.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
I love seeing my coworkers interact and help kids live their best lives. I love seeing growth and pushing limits.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
I would wish to fly!
