Interests:I am a Chicago sports fan at heart, so without a doubt I keep track of the Chicago Cubs, Bulls, and the Bears. I enjoy playing basketball and enjoy the task of attempting to play golf. I love going through life with my wife and family. I also consider a privilege to be able to use my profession in different contexts around the world through being involved in medical missions.
Personal Quote: “As a physical therapist I take great pride in assisting people return to the capabilities that they once had. At the Mettler Center, I am a part of a dedicated team of therapists that have the compassion, care, and knowledge to work towards the same goal.”

“As parents, our first instinct is to forget about yourself to take care of the newborn baby.” The days, weeks, and the months following a new addition to the family is a joyous time for parents. But, it can also take quite a toll on our bodies. This, in turn can lead to injuries. Oftentimes, we think of injuries in terms of sports or a recreational activity.
