Hello CSS Community: My name is Jovany Joya and I am a senior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. My career goal is to become a physical therapist. During the Spring of 2017, I began shadowing my supervisor at ATI Physical Therapy in College Park, MD. In May, I was offered a position to become a rehab technician. After working for ATI during the summer, I was offered the opportunity retain my position and continue working at ATI. As a rehab technician, I am responsible for getting every patient through numerous workouts which focus on mobility, strengthening, or stretching. I am also responsible for answering phone calls and filling out any paperwork for any new or existing patients. I have learned a tremendous amount from working at ATI and plan to continue working for ATI once I am a certified therapist.

CSS has been a blessing to me ever since the first day when I interviewed for this program over the summer going into my freshman year. This program has given me a cohort of brothers that I have been lucky enough to go through college with. As I have aged, CSS has also given me the opportunity to pass down my knowledge to the younger generation. This is what I feel the program really is about. When I was a freshman, I looked up to the upperclassmen as my mentors. I tried to do what they did to achieve success like they did. Now I hope the younger generation looks up to me the same way.
