Athletic & Training Background

I played organized football (had numerous scholarship offers for linebacker position), ran track, and wrestled in High School. I have trained for and performed in numerous road races including the Palmetto Half Marathon. I weight train personally 4-5 days per week with various programs and perform cardio 3-4 days per week. I have completed my CSCS FMS and SFMA and use that knowledge to assess and train others daily.

Current Role Working with Athletes

Pre-hab prior to surgery, rehab after surgery, physical therapy and training to avoid surgery. We are currently working to build a sports performance and wellness program for patients and clients after rehab and as they return to sports, we are looking to provide group classes for function and for training in different sports over the summer as well. We believe that anyone at any age can be an athlete and we work toward specific functional goals to return to a sport or to start a new sport (including life).

Professional Philosophy

I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to be some type of athlete, if they choose. I believe that we should train towards function and train towards personal goals. We should strive for the health and well-being of our patients and clients putting their needs first. We should use the most current and sound research available to us to provide the highest quality, most effective, most efficient care. I believe in the principals of "proximal stability for distal mobility" & "power means nothing without control" As Muhammad Ali said " (our) service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." -Arnold Schwarzenegger

Current Role Working with Athletes

Rehabilitation with Post Operative Patients. Ranging from ACL repairs to Rotator Cuff Surgeries. Role as a PTA is to fine-tune patient weakness and address deficits while obeying protocol and limitations.

Professional Philosophy

I feel that the faster a patient can get in to Physical Therapy the better your outcomes will be, get your basics established with ROM and strength and then progress towards what your ultimate goals are. Treat your patients as if they were your family. Once you can make a connection with them, the healing process can truly begin.

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee
