Clinton Mayhew Clinic
PT, Sr. Therapist
I became a Physical Therapist because I have always been interested in helping people improve their physical, emotional, and mental selves. I also had a significant ankle injury (sports related) when I was younger and I found the physical therapy not only helpful, but very interesting.
The best part of my job is seeing the progress/overall improvement in patients and helping be part of getting them back to their lives and things they enjoy.
Interesting fact about me, I played collegiate volleyball at the University of Missouri. I have coached HS volleyball for 10 years and for 4 years coached AAU/JVA club volleyball.
I became a PT because I had an interest in how the body works and moves as well as educating people about how to rehab and take care of their bodies. I knew some friends who went through PT and thought that was the perfect “marriage” of those two interests and every time I would go and observe, I just fell in love even more.
The best part of my job is watching my patients progress from a low level of function to a higher level of functioning and improve their quality of life significantly! And then along the way, I enjoy getting to know my patients personally and learning about their hobbies and interests.
Some interesting facts about me, I have 3 young kids who I love to be active and get creative with! I love to recreationally work out as well! My husband and I like to travel a few times per year throughout the year and then spend quality time at our lake house in NE Indiana during the weekends for the majority of the year!
I became a PTA because I went through an injury in high school that required surgery and physical therapy. During that time, I learned how much therapists could impact the lives of their patients.
My favorite part of this job is hearing/ seeing the improvements patients have made to return back to their activities.
Outside of work, I enjoy gardening and preserving food with my husband. I love to bake and cook for my family. I also enjoy running, hiking, fishing, and going to church with my family.
I became a Physical Therapist because I wanted to help people recognize the benefits of staying active and exercising in order to live a longer, healthier life.
My favorite part of this job is seeing people realize the benefits of exercising and getting back to doing things they enjoy.
Interesting fact about me, I played Division 1 baseball at Valpo and was once teammates for a summer with a current Chicago White Sox shortstop and 2019 AL Batting Campion, Tim Anderson.
I became a Physical Therapist Assistant because I spent some time in High School in therapy from a knee injury and thought it would be a cool job.
The best part of my job is getting people back into the activities that they love and need. They are so grateful and that is rewarding.
