I have been in the physical therapy field since 2009, initially as a Physical Therapy Technician, then as a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2012, finally gaining my Doctorate degree from A.T Still University in 2019.
My interest in the field of physical therapy began because I love movement and I think the body has the ability to do great things. I believe that movement is the key to many of our physical ailments and adequate, efficient movement is incredibly beneficial to health. As a Physical Therapist, we are considered movement specialist and my aim is to provide adequate care while possessing a deep understanding of the body as a whole synergistic system. When I work with each client, my goal is to understand them as individuals so that I can provide care in a more individualized way which will be more beneficial for the client. Along with the base knowledge and understanding of movement, I have gained other tools to utilize in treatment like, cupping, dry needling, myofascial techniques and massage.
Personally, I am a husband and father to 3 wonderful children. I am involved in my community and love working with teenagers and young adults.
