Our Latest Field Staff Recognition Winner
We have the distinct honor of introducing Laura W., a committed Physical Therapist Assistant who helps patients at a skilled nursing facility in Marin County, California. Laura’s recruiter, Angelia Peterson, nominated her due to great feedback from our client and excellent performance as a Preferred employee. Congratulations, Laura, for earning this well-deserved award!
How Laura Become a PTA at a Skilled Nursing Facility
“I started out as a personal trainer, for myself through high school, in the military, and after leaving the military. After leaving the military and social working, a few of my clients recommended physical therapy. I thought outpatient was the perfect place for me, because of my background. But, after several years of working in the SNF setting, I have learned that my heart, the social worker part, provides humanity, understanding, and encouragement to a group of people who are often forgotten. Getting to be an advocate for my patients gives purpose to going to work each day, even WHEN they don’t want to exercise and my own personal world is upside down.”
