While Bethany was a Sun Devil, she volunteered at the Phoenix Children's Hospital in the out patient rehab department. During her time at PCH she enjoyed learning new techniques to rehab children using playtime as a form of exercise. The children were able to use their everyday toys and games to mobilize their bodies. She loved how they always had a smile on their faces.

As part of Bethany’s major at ASU she also completed an internship at Rebound during her last semester where she gained experience in the clinical setting. “Rebound has taught me that PT is more about personal care and catering to every single patients needs. No two patients are the same. The attentiveness and care Rebound provides to their patients motivates and encourages me to give the best care I can to each person I interact with everyday. I love that Rebound educates their patients with reasons on why their patients are performing their exercises and how it will benefit them. At Rebound, you learn something new everyday.” Bethany plans on pursuing a career as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in the near future.
