My original interest in Physical Therapy began in 1974 following high school graduation from De La Salle in Detroit, Michigan. I volunteered at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan throughout the summer of 1974 and was impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the therapist at that facility. In the 70s there were only two Physical Therapy schools in Michigan. They were The University of Michigan and Wayne State University. I was accepted to WSU’s program, and graduated from there in 1979. At that point I began to focus on the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine field.

My ultimate goal in Physical Therapy was to start my own practice in my home town of Lake Orion, Michigan. In April of 2001 that dream became a reality with the opening of Lake Orion HealthQuest. At our facility we specialize in Orthopedic and Sports related injuries. We have an outstanding team of therapists all focused on improving the physical and mental well-being of each patient that walks though our doors. I strongly believe in continuing education, as well as passing on knowledge to students through our numerous affiliations with all the current Physical Therapy schools in Michigan.
