Current Role Working With The Athletic Population
In my 25+ year career, I have seen countless high school and college athletes and many professional ones as well.  Most recently as the Director and practicing clinician for largest orthopedic group in North Texas.  Many of our local doctors were Team Physicians for many local colleges,  high schools and even the short lived local XFL team.   My current practice focuses more on Barbell/Fitness Athletes, Golfers and Ballroom Dancers.  However, I am always happy and fully confident in helping all athletes.
Professional Philosophy
I am evidence based but individually nuanced and believe communication with the athlete is the key. I have strong orthopedic and manual therapy background but have always believed in exercise and education as cornerstones of programs.  I believe in treating the entire human not just a joint or muscle. I know my purpose is to make athletes/humans better in many various ways. I love helping my clients rebuild capacity add new capacities and find their resilience - so they THRIVE not just survive!
Athletic Background
Have played most all sports throughout my life, though was D1 level basketball player; I currently personally vary my workouts to target different adaptations, and for variety do to training age, prior injury and just boredom.
Academic Background and Professional Training
Univ. Of Texas - Biomedical Engineering;  UTHSCSA - PT
