Jennifer Wydick decided to become a physical therapist’s assistant after her roller-blading accident turned out to be a positive experience.

“I injured my knee when I was 12 and had to go to physical therapy for a while,” she said. I just saw it as a really fun environment. Everyone was always joking around, but they were so helpful. They also gave me a lot of cookies.”

Wydick said her physical therapists helped her cope with her injury as well as her personal issues.

“I was bullied a lot in middle school, and my parents were also going through a divorce,” she said. “That’s tough for any kid.”

Wydick works full time but is steadily working toward her degree.

“I’m going to help injured people walk someday,” she said.
