10.21.13 |
Q: What classes will you be teaching at LVC?
A: I will be teaching PTH-518 Exercise Science, PHT 534 Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy, and will be assisting with PHT 542 Pharmacology in Rehabilitation.

Q: What is your educational background and career experience?
A: I completed my BS in General Studies, Master of Science in Physical Therapy, and Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Misericordia University. I became an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in 2003. In 2009 I became an APTA Certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy Specialist. From 2008 to this fall, I served as an adjunct instructor for the Physical Therapy Department here at Lebanon Valley College, and also have served as an adjunct instructor for Misericordia University in Dallas, Pa. I have worked as a practicing physical therapist since 1999, serving primarily in the acute care setting (hospitals), with a concentration in treating patients in intensive care units.

Q: What excites you about teaching at The Valley?
A: Everything! I have come to know LVC students to be highly motivated, fun-loving, and dedicated to their pursuits. The LVC faculty and staff, particularly the PT department, are hard-working professionals with whom I am both humbled and honored to work.

Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself – crazy hobby? Weird talent?
A: I’m pretty low-key. Most of my free time is spent with my wife, Shannon, and our two children, Marcus and Lukas. Together, we enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, and boating. One of my hobbies is woodworking.

Q: What events are you looking forward to attending on campus this fall?

A: I am eager to hear Dr. Roger Nelson’s McMillan Lecture this October. It’s an honor for the College to be associated with such an influential leader in the world of physical therapy, and hearing his lecture in person will be inspiring!
