After 30+ yrs. of physical therapy practice I’m still awed by the ability of the human body to heal and how much can depend on our outlook on life. A degree from the University of North Dakota gave me a wonderful start, since I have been the benefactor of insightful teachers in numerous areas of patient care. During years of inpatient hospital care, I followed patients with severe illness or trauma through intensive care, wound and burn care, lymphedema management of cancer, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain and industrial rehab. Working twelve years with stroke, spinal cord and brain injured patients, and children with neurologic disorders lead to extensive training in NDT (Bobath), Feldenkrais and Motor Control Theory. Through these experiences I have developed an understanding of human movement. I have a life long interest in athletics, growing up playing and working on a ranch, enjoying sports at all levels from high school football, baseball and skiing to collegiate track and field. Now I enjoy sharing the experience: gardening, skateboarding, cycling and backpacking with my wife, Nancy, and children, Claire and Sasha. The kids aren’t as thrilled by the physical and emotional benefits of yard work as I am.'
