Steven is a staff physical therapist at Puget Sound Physical Therapy. He was born and raised in Thurston County. Steven graduated from the University of Southern California in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology with a concentration in Applied Physiology. After a year of working as a physical therapy aide, Steven matriculated into Columbia University’s Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program and graduated in 2017. Through his clinical experiences in school he has worked in a variety of settings across the nation ranging from acute care in a VA hospital in the Bronx, New York to outpatient, sports-specific rehabilitation with professional athletes in Phoenix, Arizona.
Steven has always loved sports and sports medicine and was fortunate enough to have pursued various educational opportunities from high school through graduate school and post-graduate to further his skills. He has specific interests in empowering his patients to “fix” themselves at home through specific exercise planning as well as hands-on manual therapy techniques to supplement the rehabilitation process. Steven culminated an orthopedic manual therapy residency through industry leader Evidence in Motion to further his targeted manual therapy interventions and help patients get better faster with a board specialist certification in Orthopedics in June 2019.
Outside of work, Steven enjoys exploring nature through hiking and hunting in the mountains, fishing in lakes and rivers, and traveling to new places.
