Get to Know Brian
Like many people in the Physical Therapy profession, Brian grew up playing just about any sport he could be exposed to. In high school, he narrowed his participation to baseball and also played through college. It was in college that he gravitated to the Athletic Training Room as well as the baseball diamond and began interning with the head Athletic Trainer at Occidental College. From there he received his Master’s Degree at Chapman University while finishing his athletic training clinical hours to become a Certified Athletic Trainer, and he also worked in high school, junior college, and professional athletic settings. After working in the athletic training field and also working in a physical therapy clinic he was able to pursue his Physical Therapist Assistant license in 1995 and has worked in outpatient orthopedic settings since 1996.
It has been his passion to work with patients in returning them to their previous levels of activity by trying to find the “pieces of the puzzle” that are contributing to their injuries and ailments and to strive to continue to learn and develop new skills to enhance my treatment techniques.
Brian lives in Rancho Santa Margarita with his wife and two cats as they have recently become empty nesters.
