James is an Idaho native who grew up in a small town in South-Eastern Idaho. He played many sports in high school including football, basketball, and baseball. He had a couple of injuries during those years that led him to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. James really enjoyed the idea of having the knowledge and physical capability of helping someone return to the activities they enjoy doing without limitations, which is where his passion for physical therapy comes from.
James did his undergraduate studies in Exercise Science at Boise State University where he fell in love with the Treasure Valley area. In 2018, he completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.
In his spare time, James has always enjoyed outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, sports, and snowshoeing. James has always been a die hard Boise State Bronco fan, and he enjoys going to the athletic events.
