Job Title: Health Sciences Instructor/Physical Therapist
Ms. Mariah Dolan has been a physical therapist for over 20 years. (Where has the time gone?) She started a rehabilitation program with her hospital working in conjunction with the orthopedic surgeons. Their goal was to establish themselves as the best hospital to have a joint replacement. She ended up teaching pre-operative classes for patients and discovered that she loved teaching even more than PT (which she never dreamed was possible!) She went back to school to get another master’s degree in teaching so she could fuse her love of teaching and healthcare.
