Halle is currently in her last year of obtaining a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Fresno State. She is currently conducting research to observe changes in the neurophysiology and biomechanics of an individual after enduring Chronic Ankle Instability and Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury by using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training and became a certified Athletic Trainer. She has worked in various settings such as combative sports through USA Wrestling and USA taekwondo, and non-traditional settings such as Frito-Lay.
Working with athletes during their post-injury rehab helped her realize how much she enjoyed working with people through some of the toughest parts of the healing process. In the process of working with these athletes, she realized the passion she had for evaluation, treatment, and creating unique programs to cater to an individual’s goals.
Halle enjoys working at BioSport because the staff takes the time to treat the whole individual, not just the injury they came in with. The team is great at being professional, but also demonstrates lots of compassion and humor to make the patients feel comfortable. She feels the hands-on experience as well as mentorship from the Physical Therapists in the clinic will help her become a skilled PT.
Halle believes she will continue being a forever-learner even after she graduates from school. She plans to obtain more certifications to continually improve her skill-set. She also plans to give back to the community through hosting pro-bono clinics for children to learn how to play adaptive sports.
In her free time, she enjoys traveling with friends, staying physically active, and hanging out with her crazy family.
