I joined the Sport and Exercise Science faculty at WLC in January 2024. Previously I worked full-time as a physical therapist specializing in orthopedics and sports medicine care for a variety of patient populations. During my time, I earned the title of sports health specialist, performance throwing specialist, and performance running specialist. I continue my physical therapy career in the summer when I am not teaching full-time at WLC. When I am not working, I enjoy time with my wife, Stephanie, and our two children, Leo and Stella.
