Without my mentors, I would be nothing
Studying my craft never came easy to me.
I had to work incredibly hard to learn many scientific concepts in college, with varied successes and failures. Despite continual review, much of the information didn’t stick.
Although I had a knack for orthopedic physical therapy, I wasn’t seeing the results I had hoped for during my clinical rotations. I felt inept, out of place, and lost.
That all changed in Indianapolis.
There I met one of my greatest mentors, Bill Hartman. He helped build my confidence as a clinician, taught me the basic sciences and rehabilitation in an easy-to-learn manner, and gave me outside-the-box solutions to help my patients.
What was most admirable was his discipline and continual desire to learn. These were the most important things I left with.
It is people like Bill and the people we work with that continue driving me to get better. That drove me to attend over 70 continuing education courses my first five years out of school. Inspired me to better my understanding through writing, speaking, and teaching. To put myself in uncomfortable situations so I can grow.
That pushes me to becoming the best me.
This website is a product of that goal. Many clinicians I speak to yearn for a mentor. Someone to hold them accountable. Someone that they can learn from. Someone that has made the mistakes already.
It is my hope to be that for you. Regardless of if you are a clinician, coach, or enthusiast, I’m here to help you reach your goals. I want you to learn through my failures and successes so the journey is accelerated.
The journey to becoming the best you.
Drawing from my experience as an NBA therapist and strength coach, I write about all things along the performance continuum: rehab, training, nutrition, sports science, sleep, stress management, and the learning process.
I have yet to write what you are looking for? No problem. Reach out to me about personal mentoring and I can better explain concepts you may have trouble understanding.
Or maybe you are here because you are in pain, having trouble moving, or simply want to get in better shape. Talk to me about a movement consultation or online training. I’ll help you achieve your performance goals.
I have several videos demonstrating various techniques, exercises, and concepts to help enhance your learning.
I’ve taken a lot of continuing education and read many books over the years. Maybe you are diving into those subjects as well. Check out my course notes and book notes to help get the most out of what you are learning. They’re like Sparknotes, only nerdier.
