Cary physical therapist Career Day speaker

CARY – Deb Gulbrandson, owner of Cary Physical Therapy, recently spoke at the Cary Grove High School Career Day.

Gulbrandson spoke on the requirements to become a physical therapist – a seven-year program leading to a doctorate in physical therapy. Job opportunities are plentiful. Gulbrandson related her own career path which included starting the physical therapy department at Good Shepherd Hospital in 1979, traveling as a consultant to the business industry such a R.J. Reynolds in North Carolina and the Chicago Tribune. She also provided therapy services to the Wisconsin School for the Deaf, taught senior physical therapy students at Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago and is currently a national speaker on osteoporosis.

“One of the main points that I wanted to stress to the seniors is that physical therapy is such a diverse and satisfying career. After I dislocated my elbow when I was 14 years old, I decided physical therapy was the coolest job in the world. Forty-six years later, I still feel the same way.”
