I have been interested in movement for as long as I can remember. As a result of me dancing all the time at home, my mom signed me up for ballet when I was 4 and I stuck with it for 10 years until I sustained a serious injury. I had surgery to reconstruct ligaments in my left ankle in 2001 and a couple months later, on my 16th birthday, I started physical therapy. The office was a big open space and there were people in there with all different types of injuries in various stages of recovery. I was awe-stricken at how the therapists seemed to know how to work with and help all of them. From what I can remember, that was my first real taste of inspiration to help others heal themselves.
