Evan is a sophomore at Briarcrest Christian High School, and enjoys singing, cross country and softball. In fact, it's that active lifestyle that Evan was thankful to return to after an injury. She has been a patient of ours twice, and both times she was able to return "pain-free and without medication" to her activities after physical therapy. Despite the time commitment (especially hard for a busy high school student) she said her time at the clinic was definitely worth it.
She has lived in Memphis her entire life. She is glad it's close to one of her other favorite places...Oxford, MS, where her grandparents live and her favorite college, Ole Miss, is located. Her best friend is her brother, a Senior at Briarcrest, and she is very close to her parents, who she refers to as her "role models." (the girls at the front desk love watching them interact and seeing the love between Evan and her family - it's very evident that the love of Jesus flows freely in that family!).
When we asked Evan what she likes about The Smith Clinic she replied, "I love how the therapists strive to create a personal bond with each of their patients. I've had many laughs with them and grown to love all of them. I love how they have a prayer box and Christian music playing at the clinic. They also have coffee and really fancy water...haha!"
It's people like Evan and her Mom that make our jobs so enjoyable and fulfilling! Thanks to Evan for sharing about herself and for being our patient!
