Why am I a PT?
Alex has always enjoyed the many roles that a physical therapist gets to play in the rehabilitative process. “I believe that we have a unique opportunity to help those hurting, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually.” As your therapist Alex prides himself on treating you as a person, and not just an injury. “I think as a healthcare provider I have a duty to help the patient to do or be whatever they want to be, not to set limitations or discourage them from their goals.”
Continuing Education Commitment
Alex currently holds the Certification in Dry Needling from the American Academy of Manipulative Therapy. He plans to continue with the AAMT to obtain the Certification in Spinal and extremity Manipulation. Alex believes that the more advanced education your providers can practice, the better it will serve the patient. Look for him to constantly evaluate the need of the community he serves to provide the best care.
Professional and Community Activities
Alex is active in the physical therapy community as Clinical Instructor to students from Physical Therapy programs all across the country. He also works as a lab instructor for Dry Needling courses. Locally he is working to get more involved in community outreach and providing education and Physical Therapy consultations/services at local athletic events.
Alex is originally from the Atlanta, GA area, but went to school in southeast Georgia. He moved to North Carolina for Physical Therapy School in 2011. He was able to use his clinical rotations to see new areas of the Southeast, including Wilmington, NC and Nashville, TN. Finally, he landed in the Denver area for his final internship of school where he fell in love with two things. Colorado and his now wife, Ashley. He and Ashley live in Arvada with their two dogs, Hank and Ernie, with a baby boy arriving November of 2017. Alex has learned to snowboard during his time here and has been able to hike a few 14ers. As an avid craft beer drinker, he fits right in here in Colorado!
Why am I a PT?
Linda has enjoyed a life time of dedication to her professional role as a PT. Her initial interest in PT began as a basic desire to improve the quality of life of others. As her career has progressed and developed through the years, her professional and personal life experiences have created a genuine insight into a balance of age appropriate treatment of physical dysfunction and the emotional needs of her clients.
Continuing Education Commitment
Linda has an extension resume of yearly continuing education classes encompassing a variety of treatment techniques and approaches. Her areas of expertise are feet/orthotics and dry needling.
Linda has been practicing as a licensed PT for over 40 years primarily in an outpatient orthopedic setting. After graduating from the University of Illinois Medical School, she worked in a hospital setting for a few years in her home town of Elgin, Illinois.

Linda is an avid hiker, biker, cross country skier, kayaker and camper. Her other interests include yoga and reading.
