Taylor is an Iowan native that completed his undergraduate studies in Exercise Science at University of Northern Iowa and Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Des Moines University when he graduated in 2017. After graduation, Taylor moved to Tacoma, Washington for a few years where he successfully passed the Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Examination and joined a local Orthopedic and Sports Residency Program as a faculty member with a focus on teaching manual therapy and strength training in the lower extremity. After a few years in WA Taylor and his family decided to move a bit closer to home while also being able to maintain their mountain sport lifestyle landing them in Bozeman, MT to settle down.
Taylor prides himself in his ability to treat a wide variety of orthopedic conditions and body areas throughout the spine and extremities while also having an interest in treating sport and fitness athletes such as crossfitters. He believes that an active lifestyle is important throughout the lifespan whether it’s a young high school football player or an 85-year-old grandparent that needs the strength to carry their groceries or grandchild up and down the stairs. He is a firm believer that Physical Therapists can play a major role in helping reduce emergency room visits along with unnecessary imaging costs for patients by supporting a physical therapy visit first after an orthopedic injury for an evaluation and treatment plan. Not only does this save the patient time and money, but it can also off-load the ever-growing demand on other health care providers.
Outside of the clinic, Taylor enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife, daughter, and two dogs hunting, rock climbing, trail running, and hiking throughout the Gallatin Valley and Southwest Montana.
