"I started working at POPT on Valentine's Day of 2022. I immediately felt the love. I love working at POPT because of the overwhelming positive energy that you feel as soon as you walk in the door. We all really love what we do and our priority is our patients and it shows. The best part of my job is the excitement on a patient's face reflected on ours when they hit a milestone. We're usually just as excited as they are and being a vital part of their journey to recovery is such a special, rewarding experience. Our patients aren't just patients, they end up being like family. It's definitely what sets our practice apart from other clinics I've worked in. We look forward to meeting you and making you a part of our happy therapy family!"
