I’m Dashaé (day-juh), and I’m so happy you’ve decided to check out my blog!
A little about me: I graduated with a B.S. in Kinesiology (Sports Medicine Concentration) in May of 2017, and will be starting Duke’s DPT program in August of 2018 (exciting right)! I’ve always enjoyed helping others (hint hint: one of the reasons I chose the physical therapy profession), so on a whim, I decided to create a blog to guide, mentor, and motivate pre-PT students!
I have seen so many blogs catering to current and future MD/DOs, RNs, and PAs , but not many that cater to current and future PTs. As a pre-PT student, I would have loved to see inspiration from practicing PTs. I would have loved to see a plethora of PT blogs + other online resources. I would have loved to follow someone’s journey through PT school, so that I could know what to expect. Because of this lack of representation, I decided to help make that happen for someone that may be feeling what I was feeling, and I am so glad I did!
Using this platform, I hope to connect with other students and healthcare providers, + share my journey through PT school, and life! As a student and future clinician, one of my career goals is to help increase the presence of underrepresented minorities in healthcare, while also decreasing healthcare disparities! *steps off soap box*
