Licensed PT State of Michigan

I originally joined the HealthQuest Family in 2004 upon graduating with my Masters in PT from Wayne State University.  I completed my final clinical rotation with HQ, loved the experience, and began the first years of my professional career in the original Rochester clinic (Rochester Hills Central).  I then moved on to pursue a unique opportunity to grow in patient care skills and management of multiple facilities and spent the next 12 years gaining invaluable experience specializing in spine care and sports medicine/general orthopedics.  I have continued to pursue regular continuing education all long the way, with a particular interest in manual therapy and sport-specific conditioning/rehabilitation.  I have been fortunate to obtain multiple levels of certification through the Titleist Performance Institute to specialize in the rehabilitation and conditioning of golfers of all ages- which I have found to be a passion of mine and a popular one in the community!

Upon being given the opportunity to return to my professional roots and open a HealthQuest facility in Southfield (2017) and Auburn Hills (2019), I jumped at the chance. I am excited to deliver the kind of personal, high quality and consistent care to the local community that is fundamental with the HealthQuest experience.  At both locations, we have a professional and personal mission to treat the whole individual- each and every visit-ensuring along the way that the patient is fully educated and empowered to maintain optimal health/wellness for a lifetime.

In addition to my good fortune professionally, I am blessed to have a wonderful family including my wife Sheri, 2 active and growing boys, Brendan and Alex, and my dogs.  When not in the clinic serving the community, you can find me in the gym, on the golf course, reading, or generally chasing after my boys and their latest pursuits.
