I am a native from Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA in 2003. After school worked as a travel therapist until ATR started in 2008. I was fortunate enough to travel to many places, including: San Antonio, Chicago, Phoenix, Friday Harbor, WA, Sumter, SC, and Baltimore. It was a great learning experience in so many ways as I was able to learn a great deal from those who were educated elsewhere and approached physical therapy differently. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to many settings; from fixing wheel chairs with PVC pipe in a building that badly needed to be renovated in South Chicago to working in sports medicine, senior care and at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
After traveling, we started ATR so that health care consumers would have a place to go that was fun, inviting, where they receive fantastic treatment and got the personal interaction that most say is gone from the healthcare industry.
Since starting I have rediscovered by passion for writing and been written injury articles that have appeared on NFLSportchannel.com and the nation’s most popular sports blog, deadspin.com. Additionally, I had the extreme pleasure of working with the American Pregnancy Association to author “PT for Pregnancy”. I am a recognized provider on the National Fibromyalgia Association am a certified provider of the FDA cleared, ml830 laser and hold credentials by the prestigious Titleist Performance Institute. Having moved from Chicago we wanted to live in a place with the spirit of city life, but with the convenience of the suburbs so my wife, Angela and I chose to live in Ayrsley where we raise our daughter, Ella (born 2011).
