Ylivette Robles, Physical Therapy Aide
What is the essence of what you do?
As an aide, my job is to help guide patients through their prescribed exercises and help ensure they are being pushed to their fullest potential.

Why did you choose to become a physical therapy aide?
I chose physical therapy as a profession after my kinesiology class in college. My professor was a physical therapist and she was in love with her profession she brought her passion to class and basically poured it on us. Outside of the material she spoke about the incredible progress her patients have made within months after coming to her. I knew since I was little I wanted to be in the medical field, but I never knew what exactly until I met her.
