For Beth I met Beth in 2009 on my last clinical at the old Bixby clinic. She smiled at me and this calmed my nerves as I get anxious meeting new people. Beth went about her day and worked. I could tell Beth was a honest good person. Next time I interacted with her was at the Adrian Clinic as she was transferred there to assist with growth. I cannot describe how valuable her presence was at the Adrian clinic. Her vast experience, calmness, and ability to treat independently was perfect. Her and I developed a great relationship based on open constructive feedback and assisting each other in getting better for our patients. I trusted her to make independent decisions, progressions, and regressions. We were not afraid to communicate for the betterment of the patient and this allowed for great practitioner discussions. We shared a passion for therapeutic exercise, self-care, and manual therapy. She was always willing to teach me or vice versa. Then I had a child and this made our bond stronger. Like most new parents, I was way to protective and had no idea about anything. I would ask Beth all sorts of questions, because she raised her children on her own, and damn it, everything she said was true. That information from a trusted source was invaluable. It reduced my stress so much. Thank you Beth, I hope I said that to you enough times. She also was a great person to bounce home improvement ideas off. I built a deck and other various projects and when I would get stuck, Beth would point me in the right direction. She also started my coffee habit. Our "coffee time" was my favorite part of each day. I figured out how Beth liked her coffee and that is what we drank for 6 years. She introduced me to pour overs and wow that is the best. We would experiment with different types and talk about family, life, and discuss world events. When Beth was not at Adrian those days were not as fun. When I had health issues, she would always check on me. I wanted to quit OMPT after my 2014 surgery and she encouraged me to finish as "I would regret it". I took her advice as she never pointed me in the wrong direction. When I was not sure about accepting a clinical lecturer position at Oakland University, She told me "You are a great teacher and show those professors how smart you are." So I took that job and it has been great. I did my best to make our relationship equal as I felt I gained more from it. She was just perfect to me. We had planned to have a great 2020, her last year, drink lots of coffee. She had been texting me every few weeks to check on me and told me "we will have coffee again before I retire" I would respond "I hope so, trying to get better". We discussed staying safe at work and that I was worried about her during this Pandemic. She assured me she was following all the precautions. So now all this comes to an end. An ending I did not see coming. It's not fair. I wanted one more coffee time with Beth, I thought it would be in August, I even planned out to try a new type. I drive by her house at least twice a week, now that will be a different feeling. Throughout my life, when someone close to me passes away, within 3 days something weird happens that I cannot explain. Beth is no exception. So I woke up at 3am Friday; opened the fridge, the lights flickered and went out. I smiled, that was Beth playing a trick on me and one last house project to fix together. Love you Beth
