Chili always was upbeat, positive and encouraging and reassured me that I would get back. She also always came up with challenging and innovative approaches to help me recover and help ease pain. I am now running again, taking Barre classes and doing yoga...I am grateful for all her hard work, forward thinking and perseverance.
