I am the type of person that needs to know why. When I am teaching, I like to incorporate the physiology behind the dysfunction, in order to understand WHY we utilize certain treatments, and treatment positions. I am also able to adapt my way of teaching to fit the needs of the individual, which tends to make it easier for my students to learn.

I am looking forward to the fellowship. I intend to improve my teaching skills, so I can be a better teacher to the students, and my future patients.
