MY INTENTION...

"At the core, my intention is to be of service. My life and athletic career graced me with several injuries and surgeries that provided me great clarity on how I want to use my journey to help others. My experiences through physical therapy school and the early part of my professional career left me frustrated and disappointed in the limited impact possible in traditional physical therapy models.  I founded INTENT to build a transparent and positive resource assisting others in their rehabilitation and training journeys.”
