I grew up in the small town of Reinbeck, Iowa and moved to Bloomington, Minnesota in June of 2016. My clinical experiences have included pediatric, outpatient, inpatient and skilled nursing care. As a student I attended CEU courses for spinal stabilization, aquatic therapy, and sports injury. My goals as a PTA, are to provide quality care to patients that will get them back on their feet and feeling their best. In my free time I enjoy doing activities such as; long distance running, biking, fishing and personal fitness. What I enjoy most about working at Advacare Clinics is working alongside educated medical professionals who are passionate about their jobs and the positive atmosphere that is provided.

I have always had a passion in assisting others to return to their full potential. Through my experience as an athlete with multiple injuries, I have developed a deeper appreciation for what commitment to rehabilitation really means. Working as a rehabilitation tech, I am able to gain invaluable experience working along side great coworkers and patients. While earning my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from the University of St. Thomas in 2016, I plan to continue my education elsewhere to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I am now thankful to be able to call Minnesota my new home.

 

 

Caroline Welch – Physical Therapy Technician

Caroline W

I am one of the physical therapy aides at AdvaCare. I graduated from Baylor University in 2015 with a B.S. degree in Psychology. I am currently applying to schools across the country to receive a Doctor of Physical Therapy. My hobbies include yoga, running, and painting. I am a yoga instructor at LA Fitness, Healthwise Yoga Studio, and CorePower yoga. I enjoy working for AdvaCare because I have learned so much about the human body from the wide range of patients we see at AdvaCare clinic. My favorite tip on staying healthy is to learn to cook foods that come from the earth.

When you spend time preparing your own meals you start to care more about the food that you are putting in your body.

I grew up in Plymouth and I come from a large family, so I’ve always enjoyed being around people. It’s been very inspiring for me to see patients come into the clinic that are dedicated to improving their health and well-being. Some of my hobbies I do to maintain my well-being include kayaking, hiking, various sports and activities where I can be outdoors otherwise painting or reading.
