Biography & Interests

Care Philosophy

I strive to provide the best and most up to date care for my young athletes. I love their passion and motivation for their individual sports. I also find it easy to relate to my patients being a former wrestler, football player, and motocross racer.

Clinical Interests

I very much enjoy treating pediatric sports medicine injuries and concussions in sports. I also have a significant interest in wilderness medicine and high altitude illness in young athletes.

Research Interests

My research focuses on knee pain in the youth athlete, the use of MRI Spectroscopy in youth concussions, and follow-up education in emergency departments after diagnosis of concussions in children/adolescents. I recently started a research project focusing on neck musculature strength and how it relates to multiple concussions in the young athlete.
