    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Job Accepted

by / February 1st, 2018 / No Comments »
I recently got a notification of a "memory" on Facebook of a status I posted three years ago thanking all those involved in my life as I found out that I was accepted into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the College of St. Scholastica. Just a few short days after that "memory", I officially accepted a job offer at an orthopedic private practice physical therapy clinic in the twin cities. I am beyond ecstatic about the whole situation for many reasons. It is a large stress taken off my shoulders as I also have to finish my final internship, study and prep for the board exam, and finish my capstone project. It has also given me the opportunity once again to take a moment and appreciate all those who have helped me along the way including, family, friends, coaches, professors, staff, clinical instructors, college resources, and so many more. My time at St. Scholastica has been a very rewarding experience and it is great to see the light at the end of the tunnel getting ever-so brighter. I am very thankful to where my education has brought me and I'm excited to see what this next chapter of my life will bring!

Research Articles and Presentation

by / January 31st, 2018 / No Comments »
This morning I had the opportunity to participate in a group meeting at St. Luke's Hospital along with other practicing physical therapists in the area. We listened to Dr. Ruda, an orthopedic and sports medicine physician, give a presentation on foot and ankle mechanics along with syndesmotic (high ankle sprains) and peroneal tendon injuries. Dr. Rust, another practicing orthopedic surgeon in the area was also there interacting throughout the presentation.  I was given four articles prior to the gathering to read over that pertained to the topics discussed. It was a great opportunity to see how both practicing clinicians and doctors work together to share knowledge and experience to help provide improved patient centered care. I'm very happy to be in the physical therapy field and looking forward to attending some of these events in the near future as a licensed physical therapist!

Car Repair

by / January 30th, 2018 / No Comments »
If you are fortunate enough to have a car on campus whether you are freshman or senior, routine maintenance is likely a good idea and sometimes even necessary. No matter if it is getting your oil changed, tires rotated, new brakes and rotors, wheel bearings, shocks, struts, windshield wipers, etc. Duluth has some great local mechanics that are reliable and affordable. I've had a car in Duluth for almost 5 years now and I've also had my fair share of "tune-ups" and "fixes". Every experience I have had has been a positive one. Duluth businesses often offer student discounts and are just happy to have you choose them. Conveniently located across from the College of St. Scholastica is Kenwood Muffler and Brake. They do a great job at getting your car looked at, estimated, and fixed all within a 24 hour period. Autobahn Service and Repair in West Duluth also does a great job at getting what you need fixed in a timely fashion with appropriate rates. I have also used TiresPlus and the Miller Hill Subaru Dealer and both experiences have been good. I hope no one has any car trouble, but if you do check out Kenwood Muffler and Brake or Autobahn Service and Repair to see what they can do for you to get you back on the road quickly and at an affordable price.

How To Study

by / January 29th, 2018 / No Comments »
If you do a quick Google search for "study tips", you will come across a plethora of ideas and examples to ace that tough class. However, it is becoming more and more difficult to find that much needed perfect study environment. Everyone has there own opinion on how to study and what works. In my experience, studying is an independent endeavor, in the fact that everyone has to find what works best for them. For me that means taking the time to familiarize myself with the material own my own by reading, reviewing powerpoint notes, and looking up any unfamiliar topics or terminology. After that I may get together with one or two people to review and go over any topics that may be more challenging or complex. I have found that if I get into a group for studying when I haven't put in the time to understand the topics, it usually ends in built up stress, more questions than answers, and ultimately starting up from scratch the next day.

Internship Happenings

by / January 25th, 2018 / No Comments »

After tomorrow I will be three weeks into my final terminal internship for the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the College of St. Scholastica. I am currently at Orthopedic & Spine Therapy in Poplar, WI. The first three weeks have gone really well and I am enjoying each day getting more experience with hands on treatments. I am also learning a lot thanks to some set aside time for one on one skill practice with my clinical instructors. Read the rest of this entry »
