A few more details about me; I compete in powerlifting, played football and baseball in college, successfully completed one mountaineering trip (barely), Shoe Dog by Phil Knight (a memoir about Nike) is my all time favorite book and captures my own ethos, and few things get me as excited as presenting to groups of people eager to learn about the science of pain.
I’ve lived all over the country, completing my B.Sc degree of Exercise Science in Arkansas at Harding University and my Doctor of Physical Therapy education at Columbia University in New York City. In my spare time, I train and compete in powerlifting. I also love hiking and have hiked Half Dome, Mt. Shasta, and various trails throughout Colorado. Contrary to popular belief, lifting heavy weights is not bad for your back and can actually be done quite safely!
