Doctor of Physical Therapy, Owner
I was raised in Hoskins, Nebraska. True to small town tradition, my sisters and I were taught the value of hard work by our parents, and relationships with family and friends have always been a top priority to me.
I was lucky enough to meet my wife while I was in school at Creighton University, and we now have two young children of our own. After graduating with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy, I spent most of the next 10 years growing and opening new clinics for another local company. I enjoyed all of the relationships built along the way, but I always felt like something was missing.
I started to realize that the missing piece was to "hang out a shingle of my own". Opening a small business is a risk with a young family, but it has always been our dream, and after 10+ years of experience I knew I was ready. I talked my younger sister into taking this leap with me as my office manager, and we hope to grow the business with the guidance of our small town family values.
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Clinic Director
I’m extremely excited to serve the community we live in. My kids go to school and play sports in Gretna. I can often be found running the trail on Cornhusker or golfing Tiburon behind the clinic.
I come from a family of coaches and teachers, and have a real passion for teaching people how they can improve their quality of life. While I have 14+ years of clinical experience, including working with a major league baseball organization, I feel my strength is in motivating a person to ask more of themselves each week.
I look forward to help strengthen a family based practice where patient-centered care is more important than quotas and numbers. I’m here to guide you towards your needs, not mine.
I was raised in Hoskins, Nebraska. Following graduation from Winside High School, I pursued a degree in psychology from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. I moved to the Omaha area in 2009 to be closer to family and friends.
In addition to working with my brother Ricky, I am an avid traveler. My most recent travels took me to northern Spain, where a friend and I completed a 90-mile hike. I love challenging myself and trying new things, therefore can't wait to see what this next chapter brings at Bussey Physical Therapy.
