Tim grew up in Newton, Kansas, and knew that he wanted to work in health care at a young age. He participated in sports throughout high school and was lucky enough to avoid any major injuries but watched his younger brother get seriously injured playing soccer. While taking him to his physical therapy appointments it solidified that this was the field that he wanted to join. He loves the chance to spend one-on-one time with his patients to develop a good rapport and allow the chance to find a plan of care that will address their individual needs. Tim received both his bachelor and Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees from Wichita State and was able to gain experience in a variety of different outpatient clinics during his clinical rotations.
In his free time, Tim enjoys traveling the country with his fiancé, taking his two adorable pups to the local park or brewery, and cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs.
