Why Industrial Sports Medicine?
“Over the years of working with Professional, Olympic, and Collegiate athletes, as well as thousands of people in the clinical setting, there has never been a group of people I have enjoyed serving more than The Working Athlete. Their dedication to work, family and the greater good inspires us all to be fully present and continually striving to provide the most effective and efficient care possible. I believe the relationships we form with our clients and their employees are among the strongest seen in the current health care industry, fostering long-term improvements to individual’s health and well-being.”

Why Industrial Sports Medicine?
Working mainly in the Collegiate setting, I am used to getting high caliber athletes back to competition in the most efficient manner possible. I utilize that same Sport Medicine approach in the Industrial setting with The Working Athlete. The appreciation and gratitude they show is second-to-none. To be able to inspire people on a daily basis to get better, live a healthier lifestyle and do the things they enjoy is what gets me up in the morning.
