After meeting with both Jessica and Clay I decided that I wanted to complete my internship with Clay at Mercy Integrated Physical Therapy. It was a hard decision but, ultimately I felt that I would learn a lot more from Clay because I connected with him more and he would let me be way more hands on. Now that I confirmed my LINK I am so excited to get started, I am a little nervous because I don't know a lot about physical therapy but, that the whole reason why we do LINK to learn. I am nervous to figure out whether or not I want to physical therapy as a career in the future, and if I didn't what I would do. However I am very excited to be hands on and work with post-op patients.

I am feeling pretty good about LINK. I had one possible mentor respond to me and she was a possible mentor that I was really hoping that would take me. I'm excited to meet her and see if we connect. I looked at Rivergate PT I loved the environment it has and I feel like I could learn a lot there. Im nervous about the medical field part because most of the time I can only observe because its the medical field. However I can work a lot on my project during that time.

LINK is pretty stressful for some people but I don't feel that stressed yet. I feel good I have got a list of potential mentors and just need to contact them. I'm excited and hoping that one of them will take me as an intern. I'm ready to learn new things because physical therapy is something I've always wanted to do but I'm nervous that after LINK I won't be satisfied with it and wouldn't want to continue to go into that career. Life is like that but I'm nervous that if that where to happen what other career would I want to pursue. I'm excited to find a mentor that best fits me and is excited everyday and full of energy.
