Get to know more about Pape with our quick Q&A below.
Q: Why did you become a PT?
Pape: I’ve always enjoyed human interaction and making a positive change in the lives of others. Physical therapy allows me to foster a meaningful relationship with individuals who start off as strangers but later evolve into companions through the transformative journey of rehabilitation. I find physical therapy intellectually stimulating in that there’s always a variety of orthopedic conditions to treat. The human body is an intriguing work of art and every case feels like a unique puzzle waiting to be solved, ultimately assisting patients in being able to rediscover their joy & living life to the fullest.
Q: What’s your favorite NYC restaurant right now?
Pape: Mala Project!
Q: Where do you like to stay active or workout in NYC?
Pape: My hobbies include ping pong, rock climbing, biking & jiu jitsu.
