WLC Class Of: 2008
Current Occupation: Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Sorum Physiotherapy
Attending Wisconsin Lutheran
College was a family tradition for Nate Sorum, and he was certain in his choice
to attend college there. His career path, however, began with much less
certainty. Instead, he believed that a significant amount of faith in God would
lead him to where he was meant to go.
After extensive research and thorough
consideration, he ultimately chose biology as his major. As a senior, he
decided he would continue onto Concordia University to study physical therapy.
Nate says his time at WLC
impacts him every day, as he strives to always embody the values of servant
leadership he learned at WLC and provide the best physical therapy care
possible to his patients. The toughest cases are the most rewarding for Nate,
who knows that many of his patients are in under-served areas and need more than
just physical care.
His approach goes beyond
manual therapy to build trust, give hope, educate, and empower these patients.
He believes that success comes when the whole person is treated and a strong
connection is made.
Nate’s career continues to move forward, and he
currently works at several clinics with more opening in the future. His
responsibilities have grown past physical therapy and patient care to include
staff recruiting, training, mentoring, and using his Christian leadership to
ensure his team provides compassionate care. Motivated by servant leadership,
Nate believes that everything he does should ultimately revolve around service
