Prior to becoming a PT, Nick owned and operated a successful athletic sports
performance, and strength and conditioning business in Portland Oregon.
During his time working with amateur and professional athletes, he recognized
the limitations of his previous education and work experience and decided
to become a PT in order to more fully expand his ability to diagnose and
treat sports related injuries, as well as progress high level strength
and conditioning work. Nick is passionate and excited about treating high
school and adult athletes, and works closely with MCMC\'s Sports Medicine
department to treat any and all sports related injuries. He also works
with Dr. Cullen and the MCMC athletic training team to help provide sideline
medicine coverage for high school sporting events. In addition to his
robust athletic treatment schedule, Nick enjoys treating foot and ankle
patients, and building custom foot orthotics in the MCMC orthotics lab.
Recently, Nick has begun working more closely with the Sports Medicine
department in the role of Program Coordinator for High School Strength
and Conditioning. This role allows him to spend more time in the local
sports community working with groups of athletes and coaches to improve
overall athletic ability, and reduce injury risk. Nick has a long history
of competing in strongman, powerlifting, club rugby, and collegiate lacrosse.
In more recent years, has rediscovered his love for outdoor recreation,
including skiing and mountain biking, in the Gorge where he grew up. He
feels blessed every day to live and work in such an amazing place with
such an amazing team and looks forward to what the future with MCMC holds.
