Genesis Matos

Genesis is part of the wonderful front desk staff here at Finish Line PT! Why do we think Genesis is amazing? She was the first in her family to receive a college degree when she graduated from City College of New York in 2017! Genesis majored in Theatre and has acted in several school productions including The Crucible by Arthur Miller where she played Mary Warren, She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen where she played Kaliope, and Exit the King by Eugene Ionesco where she played Queen Marie.

Genesis draws a great deal of inspiration from her mom who left her family in the Dominican Republic to come to the US to have a better life for herself. “She’s taught me a lot about being independent and not having to rely on anyone and she is definitely the strongest person I know.”

 

The Skinny

  • Hometown: Bronx, New York

  • Favorite music to listen to at work: Drake, Justin Bieber, Janet Jackson stations on Pandora
  • Favorite Place/City in the world: Dominican Republic

What I Like:

  • About working at FLPT: I love how close everybody is. As soon as you walk in you’re greeted by happy faces and it just feels like a warm, family environment. My favorite of course has to be how dog friendly we are, there’s nothing like having a bad day and then coming to work and seeing a bunch of pups running around.
  • About FLPT patients: It’s nice to see the relationships they build with their PT’s. They’re also super loyal, there are patients that have been coming here for years for different cases and refuse to have anybody else treat them!
  • Future race goal:  I was never interested in running until working here. I would like to do a 10K one day, maybe soon 🙂
