Hailing from Pennsylvania, Blake moved to Boston in 2011 to attend Boston University where he earned both his Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training and his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. An avid athlete growing up, Blake was inspired to become a physical therapist by his mother, who is also a Physical Therapist, as she would diagnose and treat his various injuries.
During his clinical experiences, Blake had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients, from the collegiate athlete to patients with Parkinson’s disease. At his final clinical rotation in New Hampshire, he developed an injury prevention program for rock climbers emphasizing the importance of treating each patient holistically. Blake is currently pursuing his interests in advanced manual therapy skills while enrolled in the Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy.
When he is not in the clinic he enjoys staying active through a variety of means. Blake grew up playing ice hockey and still plays in the Boston area. He also enjoys rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, and hanging out with his dog, George.
