teaching philosophy

i believe that every student has the capability to learn anything. they simply require proper motivation, work ethic and, most importantly, proper instruction.


as a physical therapist, i have treated patients in a variety of settings including outpatient orthopedics, home health and long term acute care. throughout my career, i have worked with a variety of diagnoses for both pre- and post-surgical patients.

as an academician, i have had the opportunity to guest lecture at colleges, present at a faculty colloquial series, and serve on a number of panels discussing current healthcare issues. my work has been published in the journal of saint francis research.

i live in mechanicsburg with my soon-to-be wife, amy. i have been involved in strength and conditioning for many years and had the pleasure of competing in mixed martial arts. although i am not currently competing, i still enjoy training several days per week.
