“I heard about the volunteer opportunity at this clinic from a UVU Pre-PT newsletter. It let me know that the Community Rehabilitation Clinic was in need of volunteers. I am a pre-Physical Therapy student and I was looking for both volunteer hours and experiences in different kinds of clinics, so it seemed like the perfect experience for me. I started coming in and assisting Physical Therapists with their exercises. I also helped with keeping the clinic running smoothly by cleaning beds, changing pillowcases, doing laundry, etc. Honestly, I have worked in a few different clinics and this one, by far, is the best atmosphere! There isn’t a cookie-cutter approach to treating patients and the PTs and PTAs take the time to teach the volunteers about the purpose behind each exercise and treatment.”
Jenna has been a fantastic volunteer! She is not afraid to put her own personality into the treatments that she helps with. The patients enjoy her enthusiasm, humor, and the positivity that she brings to the clinic! She is eager to learn and is quick to build better relationships with patients, employees and volunteers around her.
