While at Penn State, he worked as an athletic trainer for the University’s sports teams and student facilities and is currently an active member of the PSU alumni association. His pursuit continued at Life University, where he studied the influence of Chiropractic. Life University offered the chance to see sports and Chiropractic intertwined.
