Sam has a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from UW-Madison and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Concordia University – Saint Paul. A Midwesterner through and through, he is originally from the Milwaukee area but is so thrilled to call Madison home! He developed a passion for working with children while developing a program for adapted aquatic therapy at a YMCA in the Twin Cities during PT school. Sam is passionate about creating a positive, strengths-based environment when working with children in the clinic and loves to incorporate play and fun into each session. To him, any PT visit that includes laughter and hard work is a visit well spent! He is thrilled to be a part of the CI team and to be helping young people become more mobile and independent. In his free time, Sam loves to camp at state and national parks, go hiking, play games with his friends and family, and road trip with his wife and dog, Marty!
