Why did you get into physical therapy?
I half joke I wanted to wear gym shoes, sweat pants, and not shave every day. It’s only a half joke. I graduated from college with a degree in Exercise Science, and ended up working for a large health club, in their corporate offices in Chicago. This took me to Washington DC, where I eventually did meeting and event planning at the second largest government owned building in the nation (the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center). It was a good experience and also an experience that made me realize I didn’t want to do what I was doing. read more…

I was working in the Title Insurance industry when the real estate market crashed in FL. My friend who was the director of operations said I was the happiest guy he ever fired.

How did you decide to pursue a career as an athletic trainer?
I have always loved sports and being around athletics. The excitement of being at games and watching them on TV was big for me as a kid, so I always considered coaching when I became older. When I began playing football in college, I quickly learned that coaching is a job that requires endless hours, little time for family and not a whole lot of job stability. As I battled through injuries in college, I began to observe those who were in charge of my medical care and I realized that as an athletic trainer, I could limit some of the negative aspects of college athletics while still staying very much involved in athletics.
