Cristina Nunez, Physical Therapist with Epic Beaumont

Meet a Member!

Today, it’s our honor to introduce you to Cristina Nunez, physical therapist (PT) with our office in Beaumont, Texas.

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a PT?

A: I love being a therapist for so many reasons!

I love finding ways for therapy sessions to be engaging, motivating and fun for the kids I work with! Sometimes I have to be sneaky to get a child to do something difficult but the payoff is always worth it.

I love seeing the joy and pride on the faces of the kids and their families when I share the little (and not so little) victories as my patients progress as a result of the work we do together.

Lastly, I love being a PT because I get to have fun at my job every single day!

Q: Why did you choose to work at Epic?

A: As a military wife, I can only work certain hours and Epic Beaumont was kind enough to work around my schedule and I get to work with the best team!

Q: What is your favorite therapy tip or activity?

A: I make sure that every session is fun, crazy and loud. I incorporate songs into our exercises or activities such as “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” when I want a child to work on their core muscles, or “Ten Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” when I want the child to jump with me.

Thank you, Cristina, for letting us get to know you and for all you do for our patients and the local community!
