Joe is a Wichita native. He found a passion for anatomy and physiology in high school. He graduated from Wichita State University with his Bachelor of Arts in Exercise Science with a minor in Spanish in December 2011. He then began working for Advanced Physical Therapy as an administrative staff member until he began PT school in June 2013. During PT school, Joe completed clinical rotations with emphases in orthopedics, manual therapy, and pediatrics. Joe graduated PT school in May 2016 and has been working for Advanced PT ever since. His favorite thing about APT is his work family.

Joe loves that physical therapy allows him to treat each patient as a whole person rather than as a diagnosis. His goal is to lead each patient through their rehabilitation journey and help them discover the tools needed for recovery. He loves the idea of being able to progress the profession of Physical Therapy and spends a considerable amount of time nerding-out over research.

Joe’s world is completed by his two beautiful daughters, Lucy and Amelia. He loves exploring with them. Joe’s hobbies include fitness, learning, cooking, music, and more fitness.
