I’m a physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) that enjoys making people feel better, move better, and improve their capacity to perform the activities they enjoy most. For some people, this means being able to play with their grandkids. For others, it means running a 4:20 mile or completing their first marathon. Whatever the patient or client’s goals, I take great effort in performing a thorough evaluation to tailor a plan of care to match each individual’s needs.

I particularly enjoy working with runners because I’ve competed in track, cross country, and road racing for about 12 years and have dealt with my share of injuries. I enjoy reading running-related research to learn more about the intricacies of how the human body functions while running.

I’m also an adjunct professor at Augusta University in the undergraduate Kinesiology department where I teach students who are often wishing to pursue fields in physical therapy, occupational therapy, coaching, nursing, and personal training.

I’ve included a bit about my educational and running background and how you can get connected with me online.
