Bio

John started a career as a PTA after serving 10+ years in United States Army. John became interested in Physical Therapy while being a patient himself with work-related injuries. John performs Aquatic Therapy and land-based Physical Therapy at the Pineville Location. He enjoys exercising, traveling and playing sports

I got exposed to physical therapy during my late teenage years with my reoccurring ankle and foot injuries. However, it was not until I partially tore my Achilles tendon during my service in the air force where I had extensive physical therapy. 

At the time of my injury, I was looking to move on from working as a mechanic and started to seek other fields that would interest me. While taking some Gen ed courses, I noticed how much enjoyment I had with learning anatomy. Eventually, the love for anatomy and understanding more about my own previous injuries resulted in a path towards physical therapy.

In my own spare time, I enjoy learning about other’s cultures and experiencing new foods that have yet to encounter. From time to time, I enjoy cooking and find it to be a stress relief.
