I have multiple roles I play within our organization. In regards to patient care, I like to think I am a facilitator of healing for patients. My desire is to see them win and achieve the best possible outcome, so when treating patients I like to think I offer them hope, and a pathway to recovery.
I regards to the company as a whole, I have the opportunity to create a work environment that fosters growth, compassion and fun! I love being an employer, and I enjoy developing, training and growing people.
What are some of your personal interests, outside of work?
I love my family. I married “up” and I know my wife makes me better everyday. I have two amazing kids that I enjoy playing sports, video games and just hanging with. We also have two boxers as part of the family. For fun I enjoy golf, the outdoors, snowboarding, reading, and just learning.

What do you like most about working for One Accord PT?
I love our employees. I am honored by the team we’ve attracted, trained and developed. They come everyday and give their all for our patients. I am humbled by them everyday. I love that I get to go to work and have fun with a great team of individuals!
What do you like most about caring for patients?
That we are a source of hope, relief and results. Since we take a hands-on, manual therapy approach that is unlike 95% of traditional physical therapy practices, we get results, so our patients actually get better. Each patient is unique, and we get to experience that uniqueness every visit. I learn just as much from them, as they do from me, sometimes more.
Why did you choose to become a physical therapist?
I was always fascinated by the body and loved sports. This gave me a career that combined both the human body and movement! Now, I’ve learned that physical therapy is the avenue through which I get to release my gift of laughter, fun and encouragement with a lot of people everyday.
What do you think patients like MOST about you?
I get a lot of comments about my laugh. Yes, I love to laugh, I believe laughter is medicine, and I’ve found it doesn’t come with negative side effects outside sore cheeks and abdominals at times.
What do you think patients like MOST about One Accord PT?
That we are truly here to serve and that we really work as a team. I’m humbled by the number of other business owners and patients who pull me aside to comment on our staff and how well they enjoy each of them and the healing environment we create as a team.
