Why did you become a physical therapist?
I played many sports in my teens and I was interested in healthcare.
What can patients expect when they see you in the clinic?
I start by evaluating my patients, gathering info from them on their current condition and health history. I assess their movement and take measurements of strength and range of motion. I then develop a treatment plan for them based on my findings and their personal goals.
When you’re not working, what do you like to do for fun?
Home improvement projects, yard work, attend sporting events, and vacationing with my family.
What are your favorite ways of staying healthy?
Yard work, sports with my kids and walks outside.
