Matt had the opportunity to join the team at Lake Washington Physical Therapy in the summer of 2010 and embraced the opportunity to become a manager. As a manager, Matt oversaw LWPT's outreach programs with the local schools as well as coordinated students and interns training for the facility. 

More recently Matt and his wife Kelli opened up a second branch of LWPT in Houghton. Being a business owner has given him many interesting life experiences and new responsibilities. 

Matt’s passion is in outpatient orthopedics where he enjoys the diverse setting and treating a wide variety of pathologies. His focus is to provide every patient with an understanding of their specific injury as well as working with the patient to develop an exercise program and provide them with the tools necessary to meet their goals in rehabilitation. He has specialties in golf, as a level 2 TPI practitioner, allowing him to preform swing analysis, and tailor an exercise program to improve the patients swing. 

When not at the clinic Matt enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife Kelli, son Lucas and daughter Audrey. Matt is also an avid fan of all Seattle sports teams and enjoys playing golf, basketball and tennis whenever he gets the chance.
