Drew grew up in Metro Detroit, and has lived in Grand Rapids since 2007. He completed his undergraduate degree in 2009 at Cornerstone University majoring in Bible. Over the next several years he worked various jobs, all the while building interest and knowledge of fitness and human movement. Combined with hands-on experience working with people as a massage therapist during his undergraduate career and beginning a new found passion for his own fitness, he found that physical therapy is a field focusing on his primary interests and strengths in healthcare. Drew completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Grand Valley State University in 2019 and began working at First Rehab & Sport PT shortly after. He has begun the certification process for becoming a Mckenzie-Trained therapist using a method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). Drew has also received continued education in the biopsychosocial approach to pain management, treatment of foot and ankle problems, and rehabilitation of the shoulder. His areas of interest are manual therapy, McKenzie therapy, and bodyweight exercises. Drew and his wife Alyssa have lived nearly 11 years in the Heritage Hill area of Grand Rapids, Michigan. They have a photography business, Alyssa & Drew Photographers, primarily shooting weddings. They love to travel, spend time in the sun, and listen to all the music. Seriously, all of it.
