Zach enjoys working in conjunction with other members of the health care team wherever possible and working with patients of all activity levels, not only athletes, who are looking to achieve their functional goals.

Zach has been published in the International Journal of Exercise Science and enjoys staying up to date on the latest research to best treat all of his patients.
In his free time, Zach enjoys running, cycling, weightlifting, hanging out with his pup (Rocky), and trying new things.
