  • My Story

    I knew I wanted to become a Physical Therapist in middle school. After my little cousin was hit by a car on his bike and was in a coma for several months, he was told he would never walk again. I witnessed his rehab and was inspired to assist people in returning to their normal routines and activities. I wanted to make a positive change in people’s lives and improve their quality of life. After graduating school and working full time in the clinic, there was a need at my alma mater (NGU) to teach and I saw it as an opportunity to serve those with similar dreams as I had. I taught part time and worked in the clinic full time for a semester to get my feet wet and fell in love with teaching. I have been teaching now since 2013 and continue to practice physical therapy part time.

    I have been married to my wife Jenny since 2011 and we have 2 boys, Elijah and Micah. Outside of teaching, I love to surf, fish, hunt, mountain bike, basically anything outdoors.

    Favorite Course to Teach:

    Kinesiology. We were made to move. I love studying how movement happens, what happens when movement breaks down, and how to help others move and perform better. I am have seen time and again how the huge impact this can have on someone’s quality of life and am blessed to be able to teach this to students.
