Early in 2000, I began working on a detailed business plan, the first step in fulfilling my dream of owning and operating a private practice. I was encouraged by my good friend and successful businessman, Alberto Perez. The name “THRIVE” was chosen early due to the unique and fitting definition of the word as it relates to the practice and purpose of Physical Therapy. My vision has always been to provide the highest quality rehabilitative services in the region by delivering extraordinary customer service, creating an environment of unsurpassed work ethic, and hiring professionals with clinical expertise. Our first patient was seen in August of 2003 and by God’s grace alone, the business has slowly and consistently expanded. I count it a blessing to have found my calling as a Physical Therapist early in life. I can honestly say that after 30 years of direct patient care, I still look forward to each day, working with my team, and serving the unique needs of each patient. I love what I do.
