Harlie Persing

Tell us a little about yourself:

I grew up in Sulphur, LA and graduated from Sulphur High in 2017. I now attend McNeese State University and plan to graduate in 2021.

How long have you been with PIPT?

I have been with PIPT since October 2018.

What drew you to Physical Therapy?

I am a nanny and have been watching my little cousins for the past 2 ½ years. The youngest was born with torticollis and she attended therapy at PIPT to help her grow and meet her milestones like normal. As I continued to watch her grow and do things that she couldn’t do before, I started getting really interested in helping other children do the same.

What is your favorite part of the job

My favorite part of the job is watching peoples’ faces light up when they finally reach their long term goals and are able to do what they love to do again.

What do you do for fun

I am very involved in my sorority, but I also love crafting things and making projects. I also love playing softball, watching Netflix, and hanging out with friends and family.

Anything exciting on the horizon

I get to be pledge mom in my sorority this year and I’m very excited!!
