SAN ANTONIO – After a seven-year break, Mark Miller has returned to school and is about to make his dreams come true.
Miller decided to take a vacation from college in 2012 to support his family while his wife finished school.
At the time, he was working in a restaurant.
“I was offered a promotion to a manager and then a kitchen manager and then a general manager, and when I got that promotion, they asked me to stop studying for a while. And the next thing I found out was seven years ago, “Miller said.
After his wife finished school, Miller wanted to complete one of his goals by earning a degree in kinesiology, which led him to UTSA.
“I started in the middle of COVID,” Miller said.
Although there were some challenges, Miller moved on. He joined the Society for Prephysical Therapy and became Vice President. He has also had internships at Mission Physical Therapy and the UT Health Institute for Health Promotion and Research.
His advice to students is to step out of your comfort zone.
Miller proved that it’s never too late to win a degree.
“It may be a little difficult to get mixed up with a lot of people who are much younger than you, but if you can overcome that, it’s really rewarding,” Miller said.
Miller is now applying to a physiotherapy school with the dream of having clinics in the city.
