Rather than bore you with a biography, I am going to answer the questions I most commonly get:

Yes, I am very tall.  6’7” in fact.

I did go to a strange school for a guy.  Texas Women’s University has been accepting men since 1972, but since the school has a good reputation they kept the female oriented name.  I was at the Houston graduate campus, right in the middle of the Texas Medical Center.  My wife and I are both from the Seattle region and were married while earning our undergraduate degrees at BYU. We then went through the physical therapy program at TWU together.  Texas is full of wonderful people, great food, and wonderful memories, but it is way too hot for me.

I went into physical therapy for a variety of reasons.  I was injured a few times in school sports, and physical therapy worked wonders for me.  I have two older brothers, one who was going into physical therapy and one who was becoming a medical doctor.  After talking to them physical therapy seemed like the best fit for what I wanted in life.  It would allow me to have a good job where I could help and spend time with people, but it would not take over my life at the expense of family.  My brother and I talked about how cool it would be if we went into business together.  I never dreamed I would be lucky enough for that to actually happen!

I like to do all sorts of things.  My list of hobbies includes some “potential” things I have done and enjoyed, but just do not have the time to spend real time on.  My number one pastime is spending time with my wife and 4 kids.  After that, in no particular order, I like to fly fish, hike, golf, bike, rock climb, garden, snowshoe, raise chickens, play basketball, woodwork, play rugby, and read.

One thing I hate is biographies written in the third person!  So I want to tell you a little bit about myself to dispel any apprehension you might have in coming to physical therapy and that would prevent you from having the best physical therapy experience you have ever had in your life!

The question I most get is “You guys are brothers?” (See Jon Erickson bio).  At 6’3” I am the shortest male in my family although I have the dubious distinction of being the oldest and heaviest (I am not sharing my weight in a public forum!)  I grew up in the Northwest and although I spent some wonderful years in Utah, Idaho and Brazil, the northwest is home and I had to come back.

I attended Brigham Young University for my undergraduate work and went to Idaho State for my Masters Degree in Physical Therapy. I graduated from Idaho State in 1994 and have been working as a Therapist since then.   I have since sat for and passed the Orthopedic Specialty Exam offered by the American Physical Therapy Association as well as the specialty exam for the McKenzie Mechanical Evaluation and Treatment of the Spine.  This probably doesn’t mean much to you but it helps me understand your body better and how I can help you.

I played baseball for 3 years while at Brigham Young University which is where I really developed an interest in Human Performance and Sports Medicine. Since then I have broken my back, herniated a lumbar disc, broken my hand and wrist, broke both ankles, suffered a concussion, tore my MCL (knee), have had countless stitches and tore a rotator cuff.  Needless to say I have felt most of the pains that I treat and can in all honesty say “I feel your pain”.

I am married to a wonderful young lady from Idaho, have three smelly (but fun) boys and a great daughter.  We don’t have a dog (yet) but we do have a cat.  I volunteer a lot of time to the Boy Scouts of America, my church, as a coach for baseball and basketball, and many other civic and community programs.  I love golf, playing basketball, hanging out with my family, golf, working, golf, watching my kids play ball and golf.  Actually, there’s not much I don’t like doing!

Hope to see you soon – you won’t regret it!

I am excited to join the Performance Physical Therapy team from Newberg, Oregon! My son and I are quickly falling in love with all the outdoor activities that the South Sound has to offer.  

The complexity of the human body has always been intriguing to me. Our bodies are so intricate that even with today's technological advances, cadavers are still an integral part of medical education. My interest in the human body led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in biology and psychology at the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!... Yes, I am learning to like the Huskies).   

After receiving my undergraduate degree, I explored different healthcare fields (including medical assisting, research, grant writing, and healthcare administration...) before pursuing a degree in physical therapy. In 2014, I received my doctorate in physical therapy from Pacific University and began my amazing career as a physical therapist.   

As a physical therapist, I am privileged and grateful to be a part of my patient's health care team. I especially enjoy the extended amount if time that I get to spend with each patient. How many healthcare providers have the luxury of spending one whole hour with their patients? 

 While I enjoy treating a myriad of orthopedic from recovering athletes to fall prevention, one of my specialties is treating patients with abdominopelvic floor issues. Physical therapy treatments can be very effective in treating bladder and bowel incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, and recovery following surgery to abdomen or pelvis for all genders. My interest in this field stemmed from my mentor, Dr. Linda Frison, an OB/GYN, who shared the art of healing and passion for treating female patients. During physical therapy training, I pursued clinical rotations that emphasized pelvic floor rehabilitation. While practicing, I have continued my training with Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. My goal as a physical therapist is for every patient to have access to a therapist who can provide healing in a safe, relaxed atmosphere.  

As you can see, I am very passionate about my job as a physical therapist. I truly feel honored to be a part of my patients' healing processes. When I am not at work or nerding over the latest research of treatment approaches, I enjoy spending time with my active toddler, exploring the great outdoors that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, practicing yoga, running, reading, and crafting. I look forward to meeting you and being  a part of your healing process!

Originally from Minnesota, I have happily been a Washington transplant for 4 years now.  I completed my Bachelor's in Athletic Training from the University of Iowa and am still happily a Hawkeye fan.  From there I went to Portland State University for my Masters Degree work and had the wonderful opportunity of working with the Football and Fastpitch Softball teams.  After grad school I worked in Industrial Athletic Training for a period of time before coming back to the world of athletics.  I have since settled into a home as the Athletic Trainer at Bonney Lake High School.

I grew up doing gymnastics and track and after a slew of injuries and surgeries, I was exposed to Athletic Training and decided to pursue it as my career.  I have worked with some wonderful athletes and mentors and am happy to be in a position now where I am able to pay it forward and pass that information along to others.  In my spare time I love to hike, ski, bike and lift weights. Go Hawkeyes!

My career as a Physical Therapy Massage Therapist started way back as I discovered my fascination with sports movement mechanics during my Biomechanics class at Oregon State University, too far back to admit.  I had always been into playing or trying just about any sport and learning the actual science of movement was fun for me.  That led to my first job out of college working as an Exercise Physiologist and Physical Therapy assistant.  I always found myself wanting to manually work on my patients to improve their mobility and ROM so I attended Massage Therapy School to obtain my license and incorporate that into the therapy.  I have stayed with Performance Physical Therapy since getting that license 14 years ago, a testament to our ownership and those we serve.  I enjoy working with the variety of clientele we have in Bonney Lake and Enumclaw, from work injuries and car accidents to sports injuries or the chronic nagging aches that flare up time to time.  I look forward to working with each individual's unique needs and the challenge of figuring out each issue that is causing pain or limitations in your daily life.

I was born and raised in the Bonney Lake/Lake Tapps area, and couldn't have been more excited to move back home.  I went to school at Washington State University and received my bachelors of science in Athletic Training (I am outnumbered at the clinic by Huskies, Go COUGS).  From there I made a big hop across the Pacific Ocean to get my Master of Science at University of Hawaii at Manoa, GO BOWS.  I have worked with a number of different sports and athletic teams at each university but have found my home working as the Athletic Trainier at Sumner High School serving the athletes in the valley, GO SPARTS.

My whole life has revolved around sports.  I played almost anything I could get my hands on from a young age.  When my mom had a total knee replacement my junior year of high school I knew helping people recover from and prevent injuries was the perfect job for me.  Combining my love of medicine and sports has been the perfect fit for me. Looking forward to helping you get back to whatever it is you love to do!
