Mike graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Dallas with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and joined the MTI Physical Therapy team in Issaquah in 2017. He is continuing his training in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy through the Ola Grimsby Institute’s Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Residency program.

Mike developed a strong appreciation for physical therapy during his time in the Army, when he saw how physical therapists not only rehabilitate those suffering from injuries, but also enhanced performance and better prepared people for intense physical activities. Mike worked as a strength and conditioning coach before attending physical therapy school and is passionate about incorporating functional strength training when working with his patients to help them return to their activities and enhance their performance.

In his free time, Mike enjoys olympic weightlifting, cycling, climbing, telemark skiing and exploring all the adventures/food the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
