Health & Fitness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body STAFF SPOTLIGHT: SHAUN KOTH, PT

Shaun is the clinic director of Kinect’s Glendale location. He was born, raised and educated in Seattle, Washington where he graduated from PT school at the University of Washington in 1994. Shaun has lived in Arizona for 18 years now with his wife, Elizabeth, and three children. He has been an outpatient therapist for 16 years, taking a mostly Maitland-style approach to manual therapy. During his time outside of work, Shaun enjoys spending time with his family, going to church, playing guitar and landscaping. Here at Kinect, Shaun aims to improve his leadership skills, hone the Glendale clinic into a lean machine, and to be the best possible therapist his patients could ever need. What got you into Physical Therapy? I had a very serious ankle injury playing soccer which eventually required extensive rehab. I became interested in the profession from that point, and subsequently had the great fortune of meeting some very experienced therapists at just the right time who encouraged my pursuit of a degree. What’s your favorite injury to treat? I really enjoy working with patients that have shoulder injuries/surgeries, and also patients post total knee replacement. What’s your favorite part of Arizona? The Grand Canyon and Sedona. I met Elizabeth (now my wife) at the Grand Canyon, and proposed to her in Sedona.

What’s your favorite part about Kinect? Communication with candor! I have greatly appreciated the support, training, encouragement and confidence shown in me by everyone I have had the opportunity to work with in the Kinect family! Who is your favorite sports team? There IS NO OTHER SPORTS TEAM, other than the Seattle Seahawks. Laurel and Yanny? I am partial to Laurel and Hardy
