Hi! My name is Emma VanSickle. I am the social chair of the Class of 2020. I am originally from Bettendorf, Iowa. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Health for Pre Physical Therapy and a minor in psychology. I’m a true Midwesterner – I love eating corn on the cob, going to the state fair, and spending time at the Great Lakes! I also enjoy being in the outdoors, specifically traveling, hiking, and kayaking. Leaving Iowa to move to Pennsylvania was a big decision for me, but I have enjoyed every minute of my time in Pitt’s DPT Program. I’m excited about being part of our leadership team and seeing what my future holds in this profession!
