Mark graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy in 2002 from St. Paul University in Iloilo City, Philippines where he was awarded Physical Therapist of the Year. After passing the Philippine Board Exam for PT, he worked in his hometown at the orthopedic specialty center in the Central Philippines where he also helped start a small practice. Mark became a Faculty member of St. Paul University in Iloilo where he taught Human Anatomy, Clinical Education, and Aquatic Therapy.
In 2005, he decided to continue his career as a PT in the United States. After passing the National Physical Therapy Examination, Mark began working at a small private practice in McMinnville, Oregon where he honed his skills in manual therapy, orthopedics and sports medicine. He then moved to Seattle where he worked as a Physical Therapist at the Pro Sports Club in Bellevue, Washington.
Mark continues to pursue specialized certifications in Manual Therapy and Orthopedics. Because of his wide background, he takes on a more eclectic approach to his management of musculoskeletal conditions. Mark is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, takes classes for NAIOMT, Australian and New Zealand based techniques, and is a practitioner of the Fascial Distortion Model. Mark enjoys keeping himself active by working out in the gym and jogging. He also loves to hike – which is what attracted him most to the Pacific Northwest.
