Brett grew up in Kearney, Nebraska, where he participated in football and track. He spent many childhood summers at Lake McConaughy learning to fish, wakeboard, and enjoying the great outdoors. As the member of a family of educators and coaches, he then attended the University of Nebraska and studied secondary education and coaching. He continued to spend summers at the lake, though this time at a as a boat driver at a summer camp.
During his college years, Brett developed an interest in the human body and in human movement. This, along with a desire to help individuals attain the fullest quality of life and remain in sport for life, led him to pursue a degree in physical therapy through the University of Nebraska Medical Center. It was there that he met his beautiful wife, Mallory. They spend their downtime being active with running, hiking, biking, and mountain climbing. They are involved in their local church and enjoy getting connected within the Lincoln community. Most importantly, they welcomed their first daughter, Noelle, into the world in February of 2020.
As a board certified sports physical therapist, Brett enjoys working with athletes of all ages, from the high school athlete hoping to return to finish their season to the adult who hopes to remain active and young for their entire life. He has continued to pursue education in the treatment of individuals in golf, running, weight training, and overhead sports such as baseball and softball. He often states that his goal and desire as a physical therapist is to provide clients with the physical tools and education to be able to get in control of their pain rather than to have to feel like the pain is controlling them.
