Zach was born and raised in Spokane, WA. A lifelong athlete, he played 3 years of collegiate ice hockey and developed a passion for injury rehabilitation. He graduated summa cum laude with his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2020. Prior to graduation, he went on a 2-week service trip to Uganda where he provided pediatric and orthopedic physical therapy at remote villages and boarding schools for children with disabilities, as well as educated healthcare providers at a new medical facility.
Zach takes a holistic bio-psycho-social-spiritual treatment approach including manual therapy combined with active treatment and functional movement patterns in order to get the motivated individual back to doing the things they love most. He places education and self-efficacy as the upmost priority in order to regain control over pain and prevent re-injury. He is currently undergoing advanced certification in vestibular rehabilitation, and plans to do advanced certification in orthopedics and manual therapy afterwards.
Zach currently lives in the Wandermere area with his wife Lindsey and 2 kids. He enjoys spending time with his family, watching and playing all sports, woodworking, and traveling the world.
