Why did Jeff become a PT? “I had nagging injuries in high school that were poorly treated by a lazy PT, in a low quality physical therapy clinic. Those injuries were still limiting my activity levels in college until it got to the point that I sought physical therapy care again. This time I sought advice from a Physical Therapist that I had heard was a former athlete

and still active in fitness activities that would better understand my injuries and goals. The approach and outcomes from this experience were vastly improved and I was able to return to even higher levels of activity than when I was in high school. This contrast between quality of care was crucial in showing me how I could make a difference. It was at this point that I decided I wanted to combine my problem solving skills and desire to improve physical performance, by working as a Physical Therapist. My personal experiences in physical therapy helped make it my mission to always put quality of care first, practice what I preach, and treat patients individually.” When he’s not helping improve the lives of patients in the physical therapy clinic, Jeff enjoys traveling with his wife, golfing, working out, backpacking, Cardinal baseball, and going to concerts. He and his wife Anna have two boxer dogs.
