Frank joined Proactive after becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy from the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY and is an Orthopedic Resident under the Foothills Sports Medicine Group, working towards becoming a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist. He initially graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from the University at Buffalo in 2016. While he was in school, Frank was busy competing as a Division I Varsity athlete for the Cross Country and Track & Field Teams for 5 years, focusing on the long distance events. He served as a volunteer assistant coach for the University while finishing his graduate degree, overseeing practices and training sessions on the track and in the weight room.
Frank is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and has seen and experienced the importance of strength and its varied applications. He enjoys working with all types of athletes, of all ages, in order to either improve their performance or get them back to their sport, healthy and pain free.
Frank grew up in sports (soccer, basketball, baseball) and was active serving on mission’s trips through his church. When he began running in middle school, injuries piled up and he was in and out of a physical therapy clinic frequently. When he realized that he could help those who were hurt like he was, he knew what he wanted to do for a career and has since made it his mission to help those who are injured or prevent injuries in any way he can.
Frank’s passion is running and he has spent a great amount of time in and out of school learning gait analysis techniques, coaching philosophies and programs in order to help runners get the most out of their individual stride. He is working to apply those principles towards endurance athletes such as cyclists or triathletes. When he isn’t running or in the clinic, he enjoys weightlifting, cycling, hiking, reading and the occasional video game and IPA.
