In 2002, after 10 years of success in the fields of telecommunications and Department of Defense, Sean turned the setback of a job lay-off into a spring board for launching a new career in Physical Therapy. The Bachelor's Degree in Economics that he earned from Virginia Tech in 1992 lacked the science concentration required for Physical Therapy programs so Sean completed 3 years of prerequisite study at San Francisco State University. In addition to his full-time academic schedule, Sean instructed the human anatomy cadaver labs for San Francisco State University. In 2007, Sean received a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of California, San Francisco. He then began practicing as a licensed Physical Therapist in the student health center at the University of California, Berkeley. While treating at Cal Berkeley in 2008, Sean remained enrolled at the University of California, San Francisco and received a Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Sean developed his manual therapy skills working with the neurologically impaired during the Kaiser Vallejo Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Residency Program. Intense course studies from both the Institute of Physical Art and Folsom Training Center augmented his hands-on and exercise treatment portfolio. Sean also completed a Golf Fitness Certification from the Titleist Performance Institute. After Cal Berkeley, Sean spent 3 years in private practice with Red Hawk Physical Therapy. Currently, he treats in the Outpatient Department at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco.
Happily calling San Francisco home for 19 years, Sean relishes serving as a health care resource for the community. Using a combination of manual therapy and movement education, Sean motivates people along the healing path toward their rehabilitation goals.
