Why Omega Project? Omega Project offers physical therapy that goes the extra mile. It is a team of therapists who are determined to not only get you out of pain but guide you through the next step in performance and offer preventative solutions, which is often where traditional PT often falls short. By treating the whole person, we can offer an experience to clients that will exceed their expectations and goes beyond what traditional physical therapy feels like. I feel fortunate to be able to work with such a passionate and hard-working group of individuals!
What are some highlights of your career? Growing up an athlete, I was always eager to learn more about anatomy and physiology. This led me to pursue a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware, which I graduated from in 2014. From there, I attended Widener University, where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2017. During my time there, I had the opportunity to spend a clinical rotation with the Cleveland Indians (now Guardians) MLB team. That experience has allowed me to work in the sport and orthopedic setting with various athletes, including golfers, runners, and baseball and tennis players, from the recreational side to the professional level. I have also had the opportunity to work with many vestibular and concussion patients.
In addition to my clinical background, I have served as a clinical instructor to several physical therapy students as they complete their doctoral programs, have helped create screening and wellness plans for local high school teams, created return-to-golf programs, and worked as a running coach to help runners of any caliber reach their goals.
What are your hobbies and interests? When I am not at work, you will probably find me training for my next marathon, visiting craft breweries, and taking trips to the Delaware beaches with my wife, Abby, and our Golden retriever, Murphy. You'll also find me cheering (yelling) for my eclectic list of sports teams; Los Angeles Rams, New York Mets, Philadelphia Sixers, and New York Islanders.
