Abby's Story

I’ve been a Physical Therapist at Children’s Mercy for eight years. I always knew that I wanted to work with kids and feel inspired by my job. I love that this organization supports me as an employee by fostering innovation and career development. I also enjoy the patients and families that I work with in my role. In 2019, I had a memorable experience with a patient who was an 11-year-old with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) following an ATV accident. The first several weeks he was completely dependent, needing full assistance to lift his head and support his body weight. I worked with him in the pool on standing activities and we practiced taking steps. Over the next several weeks he started talking and walking by himself and cracking jokes. He eventually left CM for outpatient therapy and when he came back to visit, I was thrilled to see him as an independent and active kid again. During the visit, his mom thanked me profusely for never giving up on her son. Realizing the impact that I had was a game-changer for me. I love the dynamics of our PTOT team at Children’s Mercy and the fulfillment I receive in my job. When people ask me about working at CM, I share that this is a safe and fun place to work and I’m thankful to be a part of a team that strives to provide the best in pediatric care.
