Adrien’s Journey to Becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant
Adrien shared, “I worked in the restaurant industry for 5+ years as a server, bartender, and eventually shift manager. I enjoyed getting to serve and meet new faces every shift and making sure their experience was enjoyable, however, I needed to find a career and not be stuck at a job. When I researched more about what a PTA does, I instantly knew this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Working out is a big priority in my life, so being able to combine fitness and customer service? Win-win.”
Her educational background
Adrien first attended CSU Sacramento where she completed her BA in Psychology in May 2015. Afterward, she graduated in 2018 from Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts in San Mateo with an AS in Physical Therapist Assistant.
