I'm a doctor of physical therapy and board certified orthopedic physical therapist with a passion in treating runners and other endurance sport athletes. I have been an endurance athlete since college when I participated in my first Ironman. Along the journey I have encountered injuries and illness, shifting from sport to sport along the way. I started as a tri-nerd, then MTB with a few LT100 buckles, before hanging up the bike in 2018 due to peripheral arterial disease. I'm just super stoked to get outside these days, whether dawn patrol on the SUP or hitting the trails on foot.
