Jessica knew she wanted to enter into a field in which she would be able to help others. In addition, she was a dancer for years which made her become fascinated with movements of the human body. However, she had never received or observed physical therapy at that time. Her grandmother, however, was receiving physical therapy so she observed her treatments and knew that was the occupation she wanted to strive toward. Ever since then Jessica knew she made the correct choice. Jessica graduated from the University of Findlay with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
