An extensive athletic background & history of knee injuries stopped my college baseball hope. After going through 2 ACL reconstructions & 2 complete rounds of Physical Therapy myself, I was led to my newly found passion of Physical Therapy & all things Fitness and Nutrition. I’m also interested in anything from Sports & Athletic Performance to Ancient History, Psychology, or Philosophy!” – Kirkland Simpson
