Department of Physical Therapy
|More about me:
I relocated from Kansas to Nebraska in 1991 to be closer to my wife’s family … she has nine siblings, all except one who live in Omaha, so needless to say, family is important in my life. My wife, Jean, and I have been blessed with two wonderful children; Justin who is currently attending Creighton University, and Michaela who is discerning her next move to college life.
By trade I am a physical therapist and educator, but my doctoral studies focused on Ignatian Spirituality. I enjoy reading as a hobby, particularly on the historical aspects of many topics including the American Revolution, medicine from antiquity to modern times, and of course exploring many facets of the Society of Jesus and life of Ignatius Loyola.
Beyond obligations to work and family I also serve in many leadership roles. I am past President of the Nebraska Chapter Physical Therapy Association, current Vice President of the Parish Pastoral Council at Saint Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha, and current President of the American Physical Therapy Association Animal Rehabilitation Special Interest Group. The latter position affords me the privilege to communicate with physical therapists all over the country specializing in the treatment and rehabilitation of animals, particularly canine and equine. When I am not busy with the realities of life I enjoy spending time with my dog Bella, a mixed breed Jack Russell terrier. Her unconditional love and happy demeanor is priceless.
|Writing these reflections:
Only recently have I been asked to contribute to the Daily Reflections at Creighton University. It is an honor to share personal thoughts on readings from scripture and all things spiritual with a global audience. The gratification of sharing contemplative thoughts on paper is trying to unravel the mystery of the bible as it relates to me on a personal level with hope that it might also spark something deep inside others as well.
