Jake was born and raised in Derby, KS. He knew early that he wanted to pursue a career in the health care field and found a true passion for physical therapy following several observation opportunities. After graduating from McPherson College with his Bachelor of Science in Biology he continued his education at Wichita State University where he had multiple clinical rotations, one of which being at Advanced Physical Therapy in Newton. He fell in love, not only with the town of Newton itself, but with the unique atmosphere at Advanced Physical Therapy. He received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in May of 2016 and accepted a physical therapy position with Advanced Physical Therapy following his graduation.
Throughout Jake’s clinical rotations he was able to see a variety of settings and obtain knowledge in several treatment approaches. During these rotations he had the opportunity to treat patients with wide ranges of diagnosis and conditions including: orthopedic, sports rehabilitation, stroke rehabilitation, vertigo, and many other diagnosis. He enjoys spending his free time with his family and friends and enjoys rooting on his favorite sports teams, especially his Nebraska Cornhuskers.
