What I love about my job...

“I am one of the lucky ones- I really enjoy the work that I do! I am a senior instructor at the University of Colorado Denver with Assistive Technology Partners. As a physical therapist, my job is to assess and prescribe manual and powered wheelchair for children and adults who are unable to walk. I also evaluate clients who have physical limitations for work/home ergonomics and computer access needs. Because we are part of the University, I also guest lecture for students and provide other educational opportunities for members of the community including professionals, clients and their families.”
