Athletic & Training background

4 Year Starter and team CaptainMVP on Ursinus College Soccer Team

Present role working with athletes & lifters

I currently own an outpatient PT clinic inside of a sports performance institute where my patient load is 90% athletes. I also keep weekly hours at two local Crossfits. I work closely with the institutes Director of Strength and Conditioning to safely and effectively create return to play programs that promote optimal return to sport at high levels of function. 

Professional Philosophy

The basis of my treatment philosophy is a hybrid between FMS/SFMA, DNS and PRI. I have taken extensive continuing education in each and use their philosophies to guide my movement based approach. I believe that a clinician needs to understand where an athlete needs to go in order to get them there and that our profession is lacking in practitioners who know how to appropriately load and progress athletes as they work towards returning to sport.
