Keeping up with the Therapist Spotlight!  Everyone, meet Ben!

 

Ben

Hey everybody! My name is Ben and I imported myself to SETX two years ago from the Northeast.  I was born and raised in Upstate New York in a small town called Greenwich, where cows outnumber the town population and agriculture is the main industry.  While in high school, I suffered countless ankle sprains playing basketball & soccer which opened my eyes to the world of physical therapy from the patient’s perspective. After 18 years in Greenwich, I was accepted by Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.  Springfield’s accelerated DPT program allowed me to obtain a minor in nutrition and my DPT after 6 1/2 years.

Clinical affiliations during my DPT education in Birmingham, AL and Chapel Hill, NC gave me a taste of the south and a hunger for more.  After graduation in the summer of 2012, I decided to pursue Traveling PT which landed me in SETX and introduced me to ATS.  I had also experienced home health in the Lakes Area and I was employed in a couple skilled nursing facilities and in a convent, located in the North Shore area of Massachusetts. The core of values that ATS is founded upon, as well as the flexibility of the mobile work environment, are two of many positive attributes that drive me provide Southeast Texans with the best quality of care possible. I value ATS for giving me the opportunity to grow as a clinician and turn me into the young professional I am today.

When I’m not evaluating and treating patients, you can find me fishing on Rayburn, attending the local farmer’s market, hitting the links for a round or two, or enjoying a cold beverage at the beach!
