Hello all! I have vast experience working with ortho and sports patients in acute, home health and outpatient therapy. I am currently located n florida until my wife graduates from school. I am working both in outpatient and per diem home health and am working toward my OCS and kinesiotaping certifications. Also, have started a consulting business and working on some therapy technology projects. Even though healthcare is an uneasy business I still feel it is a great field with good opportunity. I do enjoy working with others and helping fellow clinicians be experts in their field! Will be looking to jump back into management and/or mentoring in some capacity in the future. I also continue to train and treat local endurance athletes in my spare time.
I NOT ONLY HAVE MY MASTERS IN PHYSICAL THERAPY BUT AM ALSO A CERTIFIED ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALIST. I HAVE WORKED MAINLY IN OUTPATIENT AND HOME HEALTH WITH BOTH CLINICAL AND MULTISITE MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE. IN THE PAST, I HAVE BEEN A PERSONAL TRAINER, CERTIFIED STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING SPECIALIST AND USAT TRIATHLON COACH. MY GREATEST JOY IS USING SPORTS SPECIFIC TRAINING TO RETURN AN ATHLETE TO PLAY. I AM ALSO GOOD AT PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAIL WHEN REVIEWING DOCUMENTATION, UTILIZATION AND PRODUCTIVITY. LASTLY, I HAVE ALSO PROVIDED CONTINUING EDUCTATION IN BOTH GENERAL ORTHOPEDICS, SPORTS P.T. AND VESTIBULAR REHAB. MY PERFECT ROLE, IF IT WERE TO EXIST, WOULD BE A MIX OF MANAGEMENT, MENTORING, MARKETING AND PATIENT CARE. I REALLY BELIEVE IN GOOD QUALITY CARE AND HIGH ETHICS WHICH ARE MISSING IN MANY OF THE PLACES I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN EMPLOYED. I BELIEVE MYSELF TO BE A GOOD LEADER FOR THE UPCOMING GENERATION OF THERAPISTS AS WELL AS COMMUNICTING EXCELLENCE IN THERPAY TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC
