Biography:
I had the luxury of playing many sports as I grew up and as product of this I occasionally found myself in the emergency room, or even better a physical therapy facility. It was these experiences to physical therapy when I learned how integral a physical therapist can be to a person’s life. This early exposure to rehabilitation helped ignite an interest and passion in me for helping people realize their full athletic potential. This led me to becoming and physical therapist and member of the HealthQuest Family.

Born and Raised in Newaygo, MI I am the oldest of 3 siblings. I am very active and prefer to spend my free time in a Cross Fit facility, on the golf course, or relaxing in sweat pants while cheering on the greatest college football team, the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
