Profile

Growing up in rural northern Nevada, David wasn’t fortunate enough to have access to an athletic trainer. His years as a competitive athlete came with several injuries, but the course of David’s life changed after a serious neck injury in a motor vehicle accident. While recovering from spine surgery he was exposed to healthcare while taking an anatomy class early in his collegiate career which fueled his fascination and passion for medicine.

Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree he became the head athletic trainer at a local Las Vegas high school. He returned to UNLV a few years later to expand his knowledge and study radiologic science. His time in radiology was spent at Nevada’s level 1 trauma center where he was exposed to a uniquely different area of medicine and orthopedic conditions. He developed a greater understanding and appreciation for the impact a traumatic event can play in a person’s life.

Eager to advance his career, David took part in an athletic training residency program in Chicago Illinois at Hinsdale Orthopedics. Here he had the opportunity to transition from the sports field into the clinical and surgical setting. This experience working alongside a surgeon, evaluating patients and assisting in the operating room made a lasting impact. “It’s an exciting time for the athletic training profession as transitioning from the sports field into the clinical and surgical setting becomes more widely recognized.” Finding a home at Orthopedic + Fracture Specialists while working alongside a team of brilliant medical professionals is a remarkable opportunity.
