Personal Statement

“As an eventual clinician, I am responsible for contributing to the continued efforts to improve the profession and the general population’s perspective of pelvic health. Through active participation in the Academy, I can begin to fulfill this responsibility while developing the knowledge and prowess required of an effective advocate for pelvic health physical therapy.

In both professional and academic domains, conscientious reflection is crucial for enduring integrity and self-improvement. Reflecting on daily occurrences, determining new courses of action, and analyzing situations from differing perspectives are routine practices of mine, will continue to be employed during future leadership roles. As a Director of the Student Special Interest Group, my primary efforts will be focused on generating increased student involvement. I would use the insight gained from this role to help inspire others, eagerly disseminating information to my colleagues, faculty, and students in programs around the country.

As a leader it is essential to foster collaboration and create an environment where every voice can be heard. My goals for serving as director of the SSIG are to facilitate the expansion of a forum where students can connect and share ideas across the nation. Through a variety of efforts including meet-ups, informational public interviews, and student education sessions, I plan to continue to motivate others to join me in becoming a productive member of the Academy.

As participation and involvement grow, the necessity for supporting voices intensify and I would be honored meet this need as a student representative. I look forward to the opportunity to incorporate my skill set in the role of Director of the SSIG and contribute to the progression of physical therapy through involvement with the Academy of Pelvic Health.”
