Krissy enjoys weight lifting, and advancing her knowledge in terms of sport and injury prevention both on the civilian side as well as for the military. It was her goal to be able to do physical therapy in both aspects and she feels blessed to be able to serve in this capacity. She enjoys spending each day helping others not only return to what they love to do, but be stronger in doing so.
