Josh Anderson D’07 embraces his life as a physical therapist, for which he was prepared by Lebanon Valley College. Always interested in the medical field, Anderson chose physical therapy as the best fit for his goal of making an impact on the lives of others. His passion for this profession still burns today.

“The part that I love most about my job is the interaction I get to have with my patients and co-workers. I also love that I am able to help people regain function after an injury, surgery, or physical ailment.”

Anderson lives in Columbia, Pa., and works at Lancaster General Health Columbia Outpatient Center as a staff physical therapist. He has worked for Lancaster General since graduating in May 2007, beginning his career as a staff therapist for their Suburban Outpatient Pavilion. Additionally, Anderson has served as a lab instructor and guest lecturer in the Physical Therapy Department at LVC.

Although each day is a learning experience for Anderson, he is confident that the education LVC provided him in both classroom and clinical settings established a solid foundation of basic knowledge and skills to guide him as he improves the quality of life for his patients. He admires the professors who were able to teach him what he knows today.

“I feel fortunate to have been able to learn and be taught by such a well-respected instructor,” Anderson said of Dr. Roger Nelson, “a man who has such a sterling reputation and is highly regarded throughout the field of physical therapy.”

Anderson shared his LVC experience with his sister, Mallary, who also graduated from LVC in 2007. Being on campus together is a memory that they both treasure.

In order for current or prospective LVC students to enjoy their time on campus, Anderson suggests taking time to enjoy the accomplishment of completing the requirements for the degree and finding a routine that balances college campus life with classroom studies.

“If you get off to the right start in the first semester, it makes the rest of your experience at LVC that much more enjoyable.”
