Doug grew up in Marlboro, NJ. After being accepted into Seton Hall University’s (SHU) 3+2 Dual Degree program he received an undergraduate degree in social behavioral sciences. During this time he worked with all of SHU’s Division I sports teams, while also working as a resident assistant for SHU’s housing and residence life staff. Later he earned his Master of Science in Athletic Training from SHU as well. While in graduate school, he worked at various clinical locations, these included; Rutgers University, The Pingry School, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and Seton Hall University’s Sports Medicine and Strength and Conditioning Team.
Doug is a huge believer in a total body approach to rehab by identifying and correcting all deficits a patient is having. For this reason, his main goal is to get people mentally, physically and emotionally into the best shape they can be, while using the most current evidence-based research.
Doug’s future plan is to provide advanced rehabilitation techniques to countries abroad. He hopes to bring the skills of an athletic trainer to populations of people that are not receiving appropriate therapy. In his spare time, he loves to workout, hang out with friends and family, plays with his poodle as well as fold origami.
