He instantly fell in love with physical therapy and started taking classes towards this profession the next semester. He became known as the “Ice Man” at school, while helping as an athletic trainer.
Tyler has a passion for sports related and orthopaedic injuries and their prevention and has been instrumental in program and system development at Wright PT. He is driven to study and apply new research in the clinic and to see the positive effects it has on quality of care.
When not in the clinic, Tyler enjoys playing any game that has a score and is one of the most competitive guys you will ever meet. Tyler and his wife, Meghan, love playing volleyball, golf, traveling together, and going fishing in Alaska where she hales from. They have four adorable kids who inspire them every day, Trey, Siena, Porter, and Crew.
