Brent Kerr

Why I am a Physical/Occupational Therapist:  I became a physical therapist because I wanted to work in a profession where I could work closely with people on a personal level in order to help them improve their lives.  Physical therapists get to spend more time directly with patients than most medical professions, so I get the chance to get to know my patients well.  Physical therapy also fits multiple interests of mine: sports/physical fitness, anatomy and physiology, and solving problems.

Continuing Education Commitment: I am continuously working to improve my knowledge base and set of skills in order to expand my treatment options and techniques.  I am currently achieving a Certification in Manual Therapy from the Institute of Manual Physiotherapy and Clinical Training (IMPACT), which I will complete in May 2015. 

Personal Interests: In my spare time I like to get outside, no matter the weather.  My favorite activities include hiking, camping, gardening, hunting, fishing, basketball, and watching Seattle sports.  Go Huskies!

Educational Background:

University of Puget Sound, Doctorate of Physical Therapy, 2013.
