 Professional Clinical Experience:  I began my career with University Physical Therapy in Blacksburg, VA. Although it was a general orthopedic clinic the majority of my patient’s were recovering from sports medicine related injuries. During those 3 years I also provided athletic training coverage for a local high school in the evenings. Following my time with UPT I opened my own Orthopedic PT clinic and continued to provide athletic training coverage for a local high school.  Since transitioning to education 5 years ago I’ve remained active in both professions working part-time as a PT and athletic trainer. I also provide industrial consulting services when I have the available time.

Teaching Experience:

 I’ve been a full time faculty member at Shenandoah University since 2007 in the Entry Level Master’s of Science in Athletic Training Program. The primary courses that I’ve taught include Upper/Lower Quarter Functional Anatomy, and Upper/Lower Quarter Therex. For the past 3 years I’ve served as the Clinical Education Coordinator. I’ve also been an adjunct in the DPT program for 5 years in the Upper Quarter Musculoskeletal course, and in the Human Anatomy Cadaver Lab.

 Research Interests:

Injury Prevention Screening Tools for baseball players, hip/core activation patterns in overhead athletes, scapular stabilization in overhead athletes 

Personal Highlights/Interests:

I’ve been happily married for 18 years and my wife and I have 2 children ages 14 and 9. I enjoy running, circuit training, and playing/coaching athletics. My greatest joy is simply spending time with my family. I also enjoy various volunteer activities and remain active with the local United Way as well as the Recreation Department.
