Athletic & Training Background

Baseball through collegiate years until torn shoulder labrum required surgery and inspired me to help others and teach/educate information I was never given to maintain a healthy athletic career.
Have maintained athletic involvement in recreational sports.
Currently participate in travel softball for a tournament team.

Current Role Working with Athletes

Rehabbing and training athletes of various sports including football, soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, track & field, along with cross fit competitors. I am currently seeing the athletes for injury prevention, post-surgical procedures, sport-related injuries, and to enhance performance.

Professional Philosophy

I strongly believe in an individualized approach for each athlete I encounter. In the past, I worked in a high volume setting seeing 4-5 patients at a time, I am currently in position to give each patient a one-to-one approach which has drastically enhanced patient outcomes and satisfaction.

"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves" - Thomas Edison

I have worked with various professional athletes from the NFL, MLB, and NHL - specifically I have treated and trained college football athletes to prepare them for the NFL combine. In addition, I have attended the NFL combine in Indianapolis to assist with athlete preparation.
I had the opportunity to work directly under world renown orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews and his team of physical therapists where I gained experienced in treating high level athletes with post surgical procedures.
