In celebration of Physical Therapy Month in October, we would like to spotlight some of our very own PT’s.
Jeff Person is from Jennings, Louisiana, where the Therapy Center was born! He graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and then pursued his career as a physical therapist at Texas Women’s University. Jeff joined Therapy Center’s team in 2002 and works in our outpatient clinic in Jennings as a clinician.
Jeff is a certified clinical instructor through the APTA and has taken many PT students under his wing. He likes to share the passion that he has for his profession with PT interns and says that his career as a physical therapist “is a perfect fit”.
When asked what his favorite part of working at Therapy Center is, Jeff said, “I have an incredible team who I am able to work with and continue to grow and learn with. I feel every day we grow as a team and become a stronger clinic. I also really enjoy the fun we are able to have working together.”
What is the most rewarding part of Jeff’s job? Patient satisfaction. He also enjoys gaining knowledge in his profession, whether its through continuing education seminars, learning from others, or sometimes just figuring something out for himself.
Hobbies/other areas of interest: My family comes first! I am a huge Ragin’ Cajun sports fan and just a sports fan in general. I enjoy golf and any social activity or gatherings.
Anything interesting about yourself that you want others to know: I think it is funny that people assume since I am a sports fan that I am a LSU fan. Couldn’t be further from the truth. No way, no how. I bleed red. Geaux Cajuns! I am also nearing completion of my Manual Therapy Certification.
