Doctor of Physical Therapy

Derek grew up in Chicago and received his bachelor’s of science in kinesiology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He was first introduced to physical therapy after tearing his hamstring while running track. He graduated in 2017 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Kentucky. His love for the outdoors and strong interest in manual therapy brought him to Seattle to work for MTI Physical Therapy.

Derek enjoys providing a hands-on approach to help reduce people’s pain and improve their function so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy, and to have an improved quality of life. He is also receiving advanced orthopedic manual therapy training through the Ola Grimsby Institute’s Residency Program.

In his free time Derek enjoys exercising, hiking, camping, cooking, watching sports, and he is extremely excited to explore the Pacific Northwest.
