Where do you work and what is your title?

What do you do there and/or what are you responsible for?
       I provide physical and manual therapy treatment for orthopedic and sports injuries and custom tailor exercise programs for each client. I also teach runners, wrestlers and other athletes to excel in their sport.
How long have you been doing this kind of work (total)? How long on the Westside?
       19 years total and 7 months on the Westside.
What do you like best about it (other than quitting time)?
       I like seeing the progress and positive changes in people’s lives and their physical well-being.
If you could change one thing (other than pay), what would it be?
       Build in more vacation time.
What part of your work did your training/education never prepare you for?
       Dosage of manual techniques and exercise, i.e., how much is too much or too little. This is learned after years and years of adjusting treatments, seeing what works best.
What makes working on the Westside special?
       The people, the views, the healthy lifestyle and filling a need here on the Westside.
