I am a board-certified orthopaedic physical therapist and site lead at the Mason location. I completed my residency at Cincinnati Children's following graduate school. I serve as faculty and mentor to current orthopaedic physical therapy residents.
As a member of the Spine Team, I have conducted and presented research on managing pediatric low-back pain. My clinical interests include working with youth athletes of all sports and with all injuries, particularly overhead athletes and runners.
I am passionate about providing the best possible care to my patients and maximizing patient/family experience. I find great satisfaction in helping patients return to their desired sports or activities and helping them maintain a healthy lifestyle after physical therapy. Collaboration is key to providing all the services needed to return young athletes to health and the sports they love. Read this article to learn more.
I am honored to have received the Top Allied Health Provider Award at Cincinnati Children's, which is given based on patient and family experience scores (2019). As a former collegiate runner, I enjoy being active outside of work and spending quality time with my wonderful wife and two active sons. I am also an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves.
