Why are you an APTA member?  I am an APTA/APTA NH member for resources regarding best practice and resources to research treatments. Occasionally I have been able to take advantage of the continuing education opportunities. Another important aspect is the political arm advocating for the profession. 


Best memories:  Kids comments and accomplishments are my favorite memories. Kids hold nothing back! They informed the staff that “I wouldn’t have put those colors together if I had dressed you,” and “You’re annoying!” answer, “Yes, yes I am when I ask you to do hard things I know you can do.”


Fun fact: We’ve been to Ecuador as a family, stood on the equator, and been on a mountaintop hanging with the indigenous people, learning going both ways. We live in an amazing and wonderful world
