Andrew Schlosser credits his parents as his main childhood inspirations. Seeing their hard work to reach their goals and support the family, Andrew realized the value of dedication and discipline. “If you want to reach a goal, dedicating yourself to work hard consistently is the best way to get there,” he said. Andrew’s participation in the martial art Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu caused injuries requiring physical therapy (PT). He was fascinated by how different methods of therapy help the body recover and heal. The mixture of time in PT offices and his love of exercise forged his interest in a Physical Therapy career. A big change for Andrew was balancing work hours and time to complete assignments and study. He doesn’t regret sacrificing his free time to work hard preparing for exams and achieve good grades. After graduating, Andrew will seek a position as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) and set his future PT educational goals. Andrew exercises because being in shape makes him feel great. As a future PTA, he hopes to motivate patients to live a healthy lifestyle, including a good diet and exercise to enhance their well-being. Andrew appreciates being honored as the P.I.T. Student of the Month.
