Sam was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He began working at a large local hospital system in data collection and analysis, research and process improvement. Sam then decided to enroll in physical therapy school to spend more time directly with patients. He attended Creighton University where he graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. From there, he started working in a hospital setting and recently changed directions to work in an outpatient setting.
In Sam’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with family, reading to his son, and playing golf. He is also a big fan of the Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle Mariners.
