Meet Tyler

Tyler was raised in Great Falls, Montana, with an interest in wildlife and biology. His athletic and academic dreams led him to the University of Montana, where he played football for the Griz, and pursued a degree in Biology.  An interest in physical therapy grew from many hours of physical rehabilitation after several surgeries during his playing career, so he completed the DPT program at the University of Montana in 2013. Tyler's mother, Joy, was a physical therapist in Great Falls.
