My name is Kelly Pantason and I am currently a Sophomore at Ithaca College. Thank you for visiting my eportfolio!
I am a Physical Therapy major and am considering a minor in Spanish and I am also in the honors program. I am an active member in the leadership scholar program, which is a selective program for student leaders that emphasizes active involvement in campus organizations, professional development activities, and community service. Before attending Ithaca College, I attended South Windsor High School where I graduated fourth in my class of over 400. In addition to academics, I am a member of the Women's Varsity Soccer Team at IC. While being a student-athlete is at times challenging, it is an extremely rewarding experience to be able to play a sport that I love in addition to my studies and my campus and community involvement. I am also getting ready to leave for a semester abroad in Barcelona in the Spring of 2013!
My career goals are to graduate with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree and to pursue a career in an orthopedic outpatient facility or working with athletes in some way. I have been exposed to physical therapy since I suffered a severe ankle sprain my freshman year of high school. Physical therapy has helped me pursue my dreams of playing soccer in college and I am excited to be a physical therapist so I can help others live healthy lives, doing what they love to do.
