Physical therapy specializing in working with people with physical disabilities
Guest Biography: 

At the age of four, I was diagnosed with a severe form of ADHD (later diagnosed with bipolar), and the doctor said that my only options were medication and counseling. I struggled in school to make friends and got bullied for being "different." In middle school, my parents got me a gym membership to the YMCA. I started exercising, and it changed my life. As a result, I've felt a deep calling to help others with special needs experience abundant life through health and fitness.

In 2016, I started Special Strong in North Texas, which provides adapted fitness personal training for special needs with autism and other disabilities. After successfully serving over 1,000 special needs clients with zero injuries, I started Strong Education, which teaches trainers, parents, and professionals to adapt fitness for autism and other disabilities with our online special needs certification.

Today, we continue to expand Special Strong to other markets through our Special Strong franchise owners. It is my desire to see the Special Strong movement in every state and in multiple countries around the world.
