Matt graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from A.T. Still University in 2020, as well as a Bachelor’s of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy from Southern Oregon University in 2014. Throughout his studies he has developed a strong interest in manual therapy and is looking forward to expanding his skills and education through the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapists (NAIOMT).
Matt has a strong athletic background as a collegiate basketball player and is passionate about helping his patients return to optimal levels of functioning. His enthusiasm for promoting an active lifestyle has led him to participate in events during school such as volunteering with the Arizona Special Olympics and co-founding an annual 3×3 basketball tournament, of which the proceeds are donated to a local physical therapy scholarship fund.
Matt grew up in the small town of Craig, located on an island in SE Alaska. When not working, Matt and his dog Sunny enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, hunting, and fishing, and continuing to play basketball and softball whenever possible.
