Brian comes to us after retiring from a 20-year career in the US Air Force as a physical therapist. He was born in Great Falls, MT while his father was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base, and later came back to attend his first 2 years of high school there. Brian went to the US Air Force Academy for his undergraduate work, where he played both football and rugby, after which he moved on to Baylor University to earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. His final assignment in the Air Force was as the Director of Human Performance for a Special Operations unit in Washington state, where he also oversaw all of the Air Force physical therapists working in Special Operations units. Brian is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), as well as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). He is very excited to finally realize his dream of living long term on Montana (no more moving!!!), and can’t wait to enjoy all of the outdoors pursuits it offers with his wife and two boys.
