Hi everyone! My name is Delia. I am currently a student of physical therapy first year. I will be going to Rutgers Newark in NJ in September. I am currently a personal trainer. I will be starting a position at the YMCA soon. I am taking it as a way for practice and convince myself I am able to train someone and get them results. I have been working at a hospital setting since 2017. I came in the system not knowing what I wanted to do even though I knew I wanted to be a PT. I gave myself so many excuses as to why I wouldn't do PT. I was nurses aide for 5 months, found out quickly it was not for me. I didn't like nursing. I transferred to the PT outpatient department. I learned that the therapists are drained and disappointed in the system. They would complain about everything and they were unhappy even though they seem to like and respect the profession. I thought to myself there has to be a better way if I truly want to be a Physical Therapist. If not I will not go back to school. I googled "entrepreneur physical therapist" and I did deep research in google and then on Instagram. I somehow found Greg and started following him. Why do I want to make this happen & Passion : For my family. I want them to know that all their efforts are worth it. I want our situation to change. I am very desperate to make this happen so my dad doesn't have to work so hard. He is the breadwinner of the house. My dad is 71 years old. He deserves better situation. Who taught me about money. My dad (God bless him) is the only one who has earned. We have always lived paycheck to paycheck. My mom and dad pushed me to go to school so I can earn more. They don't know any better. As immigrants they just want me to live a better life than they did in their home land. My dad could not really educate me about money. My parents would tell me to save my money. Yet, every time I did it needed to be withdrawal for something else. If the bank charged overdraft I would withdrawal money from my savings. I really lack financial education. My dad went bankrupt and all he taught me was not go to bankrupt. Very painful experience because he is the breadwinner and my sister and I were very young at that time.

Wow, so you knew about GT before the Pelvibiz event where we met. As you may remember, I was unfortunately the only OT there. I know you’re starting the program soon & you seem set on PT but what I’m hearing from your why sounds like it’s is based on your social environment of needing to provide for your family. Are you passionate about helping others with financial management in your clinical practice? You may be surprised to hear that financial management is within the scope of OT practice in addition to health management, functional mobility, ADLs, leisure, etc. As part of my clinical rotations I developed a program for people living in group homes struggling with mental illness to increase their independence with money management. Program planning was huge in my program (which seems to differ from PT programs). Manual therapy, functional mobility. & exercise may be used as treatment as a means to improving occupational performance. So theres overlap with PT as well as speech therapy & psych. Nowadays I’m a manual therapist/Myofascial Release & Pelvic Therapist with a trauma informed approach thanks to my mental health & OT background, so you see how broad the field is. I am not trying to discourage you from PT (some of my best friends are PTs & my own sister is a PT) if you’re wanting to focus more on biomechanics, mobility, & physical fitness. But the OT scope is much more broad than PT (which I get why this broadness in scope can also be seen as a negative). I chose OT because I didn’t exactly know what I wanted to do either & I value the OT roots in mental health & the moral treatment movement. Correct me if I’m wrong but for someone who is not quite sure as to why they want to do something, other than to be more financially secure you might find yourself in a confusing place later. And you need that passion for what you’re doing in the long run. Maybe consider shadowing some OTs before your official start date if you haven’t yet since our programs are usually shorter & less expensive at this point (unless you have a full ride scholarship! Then go for it!). Though many OT schools are now transitioning to entry level doctorate programs too. At this point a masters suffices entry level into the field for OT. But with your start being so soon in the program, totally understand wanting to dive into it.
