My internship responsibilities included greeting and leading patients though warmups/ cool downs, cleaning and organizing equipment, writing exercise program for post therapy patients, scribing sessions, assisting in therapy sessions as directed, and leading patients through regular exercises.


Before my internship I was unclear on my defined career path, through my internship I was able to clarify my decision!

Learning experience

I was given so many great learning opportunities while at Rock Valley. Being open to learning new information, technology, and treatment avenues can make a huge difference in a goal completion/ successful recovery for client or patient.

What advice would you give?

Try to find opportunities to gain experience in different areas of Kinesiology! Exploring various careers and settings on a 'typical day' can help you secure your path or help you discover a new direction you enjoy and may want to pursue. In my experience this has helped me gain new perspectives which I feel will help me in my future career!
