When I was 7 years old, my family moved to the Pacific Northwest from the east coast, and I have been a Seattleite ever since. I completed my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at Western Washington University in 2011, and then I continued my education in Denver, CO, where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Regis University in 2015.
When it comes to physical therapy, I believe it is necessary to look at the whole person, as opposed to just their physical impairments. I think that healing first starts with understanding dysfunction, meaning that education is often the most important part of getting better. Much of my experience has been in outpatient orthopedics where I’ve utilized manual therapy, exercise training and education to treat my patients.
As a former pitcher for Western Washington University’s baseball team, I enjoy working with athletes of all types, but especially throwers. In addition to athletics, I enjoy treating a variety of patients; and conditions some of which include total joint replacements, ACL rehabilitation, as well as ankle, knee and shoulder pathologies.
In my free time, I like to golf, snowboard, play softball or baseball, and hike through the PNW with my wife and our dog.
