Share |

"The Best way to predict your Future is to create it."


Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States 


The MPTA places tremendous value on our student members. The student members of today will become the future leaders of our organization. Our student members are truly creating their own future; at a very early stage in their careers they see the value in their profressional organization.


Each month the MPTA will place a spotlight on one of our tremendous student physical therapists or student physical therapist assistants. Please contact Sylvia Czuppon, MPTA Social Media Chair, if you would like to recommend a student for our Spotlight page.

I am a health and fitness enthusiast, and love to help others reach their goals of wellness in their lives.  I love to constantly challenge myself both physically and mentally to reach new heights.  My hobbies include water sport activities, weight lifting, and running.  I have completed two Full Marathons, five Half Marathons, two Tough Mudders, one 10k, and numerous 5k’s, to continue to push myself to new limits.  I have built American Ninja Warrior obstacles in my backyard in hopes to someday be able to try out for the show. I strive to motivate others to do the best of their abilities, and provide the positive encouragement necessary to help others succeed.
