Anne "Hi there! I am a 28-year-old native New Yorker and current Doctor of Physical Therapy student at Columbia University. Before arriving to my current career choice of physical therapy, I did architecture, visual arts, I studied languages (Swedish and Russian, which I now speak fluently), took subjects in the humanities and the sciences, became a Pilates instructor, and also played drums and wrote music professionally! As a result, I can truly get in the mindset of a student who is learning something - NO question is out-of-bounds or silly - it all comes from a place where the mind is trying to incorporate new information. There is nothing worse than an expert "teacher" who has forgotten what the various stages of learning was like! I work with students of all ages and in all the subjects I've listed..."
