Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist

Brian grew up in a small town in Alaska called Talkeetna.  There he molded his morals, ethics and values and began his pursuit of health and fitness. After graduating for Susitna Valley High School, Brian made his way to Eastern Oregon University receiving a B.S. in Physical Education in 2003.  In 2005, he moved to the Spokane area where he went back to school attending Spokane Falls Community College where he received his Physical Therapy Assistant degree in 2011.

Brian began his career working in a sports orthopedic setting where he gained valuable experience in manual therapy treating the spine, upper and lower extremities and therapeutic activity. From here, Brian has taken many courses from the Institute of Physical Art that look at, assess and treat functional dysfunction throughout the body.

Throughout Brian’s life he has always been pro-active with sports and athletics. Brian ran Track and Field for Eastern Oregon University as a Decathlete, finishing 11th in the nation in his senior year. From there, he has participated in marathons and ultra-marathons.  Brian also has been rock climbing for 15 years which has taken him all over the United States and as far as Greece. Brian continues to push his athletic limits and is always pursuing new adventures.
