When I graduated from high school, like so many other people, I had many interests but no clear direction for which career path I wanted to pursue. At the time, all I was sure about was that I was looking for a career that would challenge me, while also allowing me to make a positive difference in other people’s lives. It wasn’t until my second year of community college that one of my professors introduced me to the field of physical therapy and that he believed it would be a good fit for me. I was very fortunate to be able to shadow some excellent therapists down at the Rehabilitation Institute in Detroit, and from there I was hooked.

It was in PT school where I was fortunate to meet Bill Knight, one of the founders of HealthQuest, and we have been great friends ever since. However, not long after graduating from PT school, I married my wife Sherry and within a couple of years we decided to move south to Atlanta, GA which is where all 3 of our kids were born. Through those years I have watched Bill, Stuart and Robb start and build the HealthQuest company and have great admiration for their efforts and success. A few years back my family and I returned to Michigan and now I am thrilled to have joined the HealthQuest team myself. I look forward to continuing on the level of quality and dedication that they have brought to our growing community and sharing in the effort to Help Others Live Life Well.
