After an enlistment in the U.S. Marines, then fitness
management/personal training, then some research work, I now work
as a wellness coach - basically, the onsite health and injury
prevention/rehab guy at a large local company. It's great.
I really enjoy trying to figure out dysfunctions and find the root
cause of pain. I also love that I am blessed with a job in which I
can actually use my education to directly help others feel better
and live longer (it wasn't always that way).
Five year plan - either practicing orthopedic PT OR
kinesiotherapist and going into dietetics/functional medicine while
moving forward as a health coach. Gotta have a back up plan.
One of my hobbies is studying philosophy and theology, and I'm
working on starting a discussion group at a local college and/or at
my church on defending one's faith with reason.
I also enjoy exercise, and like to lift weights/kettlebells,
practice martial arts, and hike. I also like exploring new areas,
seeing new places, etc.
It'd be nice to have a partner in crime to accompany me on these
explorations, or for travel in general.
Finally, I play guitar, piano, and a little drums, and try to
cultivate these skills when possible. Though I am just taking up
piano again, and am not that great yet. Or at drums. Maybe I really
just play guitar. :)
