What Nausheen Has to Say

What sparked your interest in physical therapy?

My father is a PT in Michigan and has been working in Home Care. Growing up, he would take me to his work and I loved to see the interaction he had with his patients.

What certifications are you looking to achieve?

I would love to become a Certified Functional Manual Therapist through the Institute of Physical Art! In addition, I am planning to work towards becoming certified in Dry Needling.

Which patients are your favorite to work with?

I love working with all patients! My favorite patients are those who might start off a bit skeptical about PT but I convert into seeing that PT works!

How do you stay active? 

I love running! In 2017 I ran my first Marathon and this year I will be doing a half marathon. In addition to running, I love Yoga. On top of all of that, my 2-year-old keeps me on my toes!

Describe your perfect Saturday.

Having a “quiet” breakfast with my daughter and husband and then spending the rest of the day with them doing different activities.
