Call for an Appointment
My passions in life are to stay active and healthy, have fun, and spend time playing with and enjoying my family. I want my patients to be able to do what makes them happy for as long as they can, and I enjoy helping them reach their goals!
My philosophy of care includes treating patients with a very positive and holistic approach to help minimize any extra procedures and surgeries. I believe in teaching patients how to improve their quality of life with less use and dependence on prescription medication. I like to get to know my patients and have fun with rehab whenever possible.

Areas Of Interest
My specialties in therapy include treating spine patients (neck and back) along with vestibular (vertigo) patients. I love outpatient orthopedics and enjoy treating anything from sprains/strains, sports injuries, total joints of geriatrics, and balance training/strengthening.
I am married and have two young girls that keep me busy outside of work. I grew up in Nebraska and went to college at St. Ambrose University. Due to an ACL knee injury playing soccer, I red shirted my first year at SAU but was able to play three more years of college soccer while also taking classes for my Master's of Physical Therapy. I enjoy recreational sports, slalom water skiing, downhill snow skiing, teaching my girls gymnastics, taking family bike rides, and playing/traveling with my family.
