Welcome to my world!

Published July 29, 2008 1:58 PM by Lisa Catenacci

Finally, the blog is started! And like any true blog, my first post must be an introduction.

My name is Lisa, and I am a PT student at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.  I have my bachelor's degree in Spanish and am about to start my 6th and FINAL SEMESTER of classes this fall. Next spring I have two 8-week internships and then I will graduate with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree.

During my junior year of college I was able to study abroad in Madrid, Spain- and it was easily one of the best times of my life.

I am married, and have been for 1.5 years.  Going to school and keeping a healthy marriage together is tough at times- but I am very lucky that my hubby is as supportive as he is.

Currently I am in the last week of a 10-week internship.  I have been learning a lot this summer at this outpatient, orthopedic internship and am really getting into the swing of being a real PT.  I've seen some interesting cases and it's been a great experience to see everything that I studied previously. 

I really am in shock that I even have the opportunity to blog in a PT community as a student.  I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts and experiences, and I encourage you to comment or ask questions along the way.

I just graduated and I'm loving working in the PT world.  It will be cool to watch your journey.  I'm sure I'll relate!  Enjoy every minute!
