Punam graduated from ther University of Illinois at Chicago with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology. She knew early on that she wanted to work with children and was initially considering becoming a pediatrician. However, due to a clinical internship in the pediatric physical therapy department at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago in her senior year of undergrad – her priorities quickly changed. After completing a clinical rotation with Milestone Therapy while in graduate school at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she was hooked and decided that early intervention and Pediatric Therapy was her niche.
Working with children to help them achieve their milestones and helping families accomplish their goals via hands-on therapy became her passion and drive to complete her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at UIC. Punam has been working as a Pediatric Physical Therapist with Milestone Therapy since 2014 and has been working hard to help each and every kid to reach his/her full potential!
