WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am originally for Greensboro, NC where I was a high school wrestler and runner. My sports medicine career started as an athletic trainer at UNC Chapel Hill where I worked for the football and women's lacrosse teams. I continued my career as an athletic trainer for Men's Basketball and Baseball at North Carolina Central University before returning to school for physical therapy. I have a passion for sports medicine injuries with a focus on concussion rehabilitation, post operative rehabilitation, shoulder, knee, and hip injuries. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife Kathy, and two boys, Owen and Grayson.
