Kailee Katt There are many reasons why I have chosen to pursue a profession in healthcare, mainly because I enjoy helping others, I am very personable, and I like to make an impact on the lives of others. However, the primary reason why I want to become a nurse is because of past influences. My mother, and both grandmothers have all been in the medical field as nurses, but the one person who has had the most influence on me, is my doctor, Chris Chapman. He is like a grandfather to me, and truly has had an impact on my life. He has been my doctor for as long as I can remember, due to my mother being his nurse.
If that isn’t a sign from God, I do not know what is. Ever since then, I have been planning my quest to eventually become a neurosurgeon. This includes my involvement in community service activities as they have exemplified my love for helping others. These activities have pushed me to become a neurosurgeon because there is something special in helping those less fortunate than me. Furthermore, I personally feel as if medicine is the best medium in order to express this
Moving into the real world (workforce) I will feel these same emotions once again during stressful and busy times, and people will need my empathy. Knowing this I will be able to be empathetic toward situations at hand, allowing myself and my peers to collaborate in a more operative manner. What really drives me to “my quality world” and a “life of success” are the multiple careers I dream of. Computer network engineering, audio engineering, ministering the gospel, and photography. I strive to make audio engineering and photography my hobbies, and keep Computer network engineering as my main goal when I’m done with college, with that being one of my goals I will be able to have a steady income and provide for myself.
Radiography is a constantly evolving area and my interest in technology keeps me inspired to learn new methods. Patient care is the essential key to becoming a good professional and I have experience working with patients and vulnerable people. Developing professional relationships with patients and their family members are skills I have acquired as a part-time healthcare assistant during my school holidays. Attending boarding school has made me a very empathetic person as I was a prefect and leader to students who had been recently enrolled. This has strengthened my conviction that I am making the right decisions for my career path.
I feel more certain about my decision while I’m volunteering at a physical therapy clinic this summer. These two experiences helped me to shape my understanding of professionalism in the context of being a student in a doctor of physical therapist degree program. I didn 't find passion about any of the occupations until I attended a workshop about the health professionals. People are usually curious about things that are new to them. I started to collect information about physical therapy such as
My mother once said, “Without a vision you will perish”. Physical therapy has been a vision, dream, destiny and a passion for a long time because I know how much of a great thing it is. I have looked at it long enough that it has dropped into my sub-conscious mind but ultimately, it dropped into my spirit. I have kept Physical Therapy in front of me to remind myself how to make a difference in this world. What it has done in my life has been one of the most inspirational experiences in my life; it has made me become a better person and want nothing less than to extend this vision and inspire people, as it
For this interview assignment, I got the opportunity to interview Jeff Gatlin, MS, LPC, Senior Clinician and Assistant Director at UTSA Counseling Services. Additionally, Jeff recently earned his supervisor title and is now an LPC-S. Jeff talked about becoming interested in counseling first and foremost because he needed a career, and he desired a profession that allowed him to have financial stability, independence, and professional flexibility. Other deciding factors were more personal and included Jeff’s interest and desire to talk with others about subjects that are truly meaningful in life and listening to people’s life stories. This interest stems from early in Jeff’s life when he often received feedback from his peers that he was easy to talk to, receptive, and trustworthy. Jeff completed a one-year internship at the beginning of his career,

My Future Career as a Physical Therapist What does a physical therapist do? A physical therapist is a health a professional who helps people of all ages with medical problems or other health related condition that may limit their abilities to move or functional activities in their daily lives. I always want to help people improve their lives and as long as I could remember I wanted to be a physical therapist. The first I viewed my cousin go through therapy, I knew I wanted to help anyway I could. Before I start school, I take time to learn everything a physical therapist do.
That’s what makes being a Physical Therapist so great; the atmosphere is always positive because everyone is trying to improve, even if a little help is needed. I use the knowledge I learned in college and even when I was a patient to give my patients the best care possible for their specific injuries. When my patients are finally recovered, I get an amazing feeling because I helped them get back on their feet, sometimes literally. I was once in the shoes of my patients. The summer before eleventh grade, I broke my ankle and I was determined to get better as fast as I could.
