Why did I choose to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy?
At the age of 13, Christiana’s good friend Hannah was diagnosed with lung cancer. Hannah had been in an out of remission for a few years before passing away in 2008 before graduating from high school.
It was then that Christiana knew what her passion was to be. When accompanying Hannah and her family to physical therapy, Christiana saw the benefits that therapy had on her and how happy she would be when leaving PT. When looking for colleges and what career path to take, she realized at that moment what her goal in life was- to be a healer and to bring people back to life again.
In 2014, Christiana was diagnosed her self with Type 2a breast cancer where she underwent 7 rounds of chemotherapy while continuing through her doctorate program at New York Institute of Technology.
Today she claims that if it were not for training religiously out of Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym in Syosset, NY, eating a healthy balanced diet and keeping the positive vibes she would be in a darker space. Christiana knows on a personal level and a professional level the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and maintaining strength through chemotherapy and radiation.
