Tell us about your 13in13 journey. What were some of your favorite places you visited?

“My 13in13 challenge gave me the opportunity to explore many places in the United States. I made it to places like Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey. The things I enjoyed about these states was just how different each of them is. They all had their own beauty, like the history and architecture in Boston, Ma., diversity in New York City, people’s passion in Jersey and the breathtaking majesty of Niagara Falls. I love nature and photography. look forward to seeing as much of the country as possible in the near future.”

How Important has the MedPro Experience been for your professional and personal growth?

“MedPro International has had a big impact on my life. They have backed and trusted me, which has motivated me to achieve my goal and fulfill dreams I have had since I was a small child. If it wasn’t for MedPro guiding me from Day 1, the transition to the U.S. would have been difficult for me. I want to give a special shoutout to both Stephanie Tello Duenas and Michele Smith, who have both been helping mold me into who I have become today. I am forever grateful to them.”

 

What do you feel your colleagues need to know about MedPro International?

“I have so many fond memories since coming on with MedPro International, dating back to 2014. It isn’t just a company, but a family. Nothing is more important than family. No matter what, they always have our backs and support us in achieving our goals and striving toward our ambitions. All that, for me, is what MedPro is about. They are definitely my family in this country.”

 

Talk a bit about your journey so far.

“My journey to the U.S. started in 2014. It took me five years to achieve this dream. Through all of it, I have learned patience, perseverance and optimism. These virtues have helped in shaping me during my time in the country. Living in the U.S. is a unique and different experience than growing up in India. I have been here now for more than a year and I am glad to say that I have adapted well to my new environment, thanks in part to MedPro International’s guidance, as well as that of my supportive family and friends.”

How have you grown into your profession since arriving?

“Over the course of the past year, I have garnered new skills and have become much more organized in both my professional and personal life. As not only a physical therapist, but as a person, I have learned so many new cultural customs and values, from many different people, which has helped them find success in their lives. I am far more developed now in my aptitude and attitude. The most important aspect to finding success is working hard and honestly. I eventually want to get my DPT, but I want to keep learning and acquiring new skills, knowledge and wisdom, which I can apply to my field and also in my life too.”

 

Tell us about your home and family life.

“I was born in Chennai, but grew up in the small town of Vellore, India. I come from a family of four, including a younger sister. My town is known for its medical colleges and extremely hot summers! I was raised in a supportive household, with a strong family, and traditional values. My family has always supported me and my dreams and, without them, I would not be in the situation I am in today.”

What does a typical workday look like for you?

“It consists of evaluating the patient, creating a plan of care, which is based on the diagnosis, and provide optimal therapy in helping patients rehabilitate. All the while, I document everything.”

 

Have you adapted to American culture yet? What are some of your favorite things to do and eat?

“I have adapted well to American culture. There is a lot to explore and experience on the East Coast. Despite the differences between the U.S. and India, it is not much different for me. The diversity and freedom in this country is something I cherish and allows us the opportunity to explore and learn. This is an adventure of a lifetime. That said, I’m not a big ‘foodie’ because I’m a vegetarian. So, I haven’t had much of a chance to delve into American cuisine. The vegetarian section at supermarkets offers many choices and I usually find all I need.”
