My favorite part of physical therapy is helping people get back to what they love to do, whether it is running marathons, competing in the swimming pool, or simply performing every day activities, pain-free. My sports medicine and physical therapy background combined have given me the opportunity to work with a wide range of patients, from professional, Olympic, and collegiate athletes, to geriatric rehabilitation, in a variety of settings. My approach to therapy is to treat the body as a whole – not just the individual injury – to determine the underlying cause. Continuing education is a life-long pursuit of mine that I am blessed to have been exposed to since 2009.

I pursued learning the science and application of Postural Restoration to help patients find solutions for self-empowered healing. This approach has guided me to help my clients achieve improved neuromuscular balance resulting in decreased pain and improved athletic performance. My ultimate goal as a physical therapist/health educator is to empower my patients to restore their body’s own effective movement patterns. By restoring optimal biomechanics, individuals are then able to move in a more efficient and pain-free manner. This is a collaborative process between myself and the patient to achieve this outcome of restored health.

On a personal note, I have been married to my incredible wife, Leslie for 14 years. We have 2 beautiful daughters, Caroline (13) and Meredith (10), who keep us busy traveling to swim meets and soccer tournaments.

Although my high school athletic days have come to a close, I enjoy volunteering as an official with youth swimming through the USA Swim Association.

I serve as well on the Iowa Lupus Association Wellness Board.
