Dr. T's second love in life is helping others. Dr. T earned both her Bachelor's of Health Science and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at UF. Physical Therapy (PT) is the perfect outlet for her outgoing, optimistic, and empathetic attitudes toward helping others. Everyday she gets to make a difference in people's lives, which in return enriches hers.
After graduation, She moved to Orlando to practice PT but she was still itching to find an outlet for dance. She saw the pounds adding up and boring herself over the elliptical and strength training wasn't cutting it! Dance works every muscle in the body and she felt mentally and physically lost without it. Her first Zumba class was at RhythmX with owner Vanessa Valentin and it was exactly what she was looking for! A way to get fit and have fun doing it! She was ecstatic to be able to combine her two loves: dance and health. A few months later she started her process into becoming ZUMBA instructor certified.
Dr. T feels the need to dance through life, not just walk it, and encourages her patients, students, and friends to do the same!
