Bringing Physical Therapy & Wellness to You!
RD, LD, CD
Ben has been a Registered Dietitian since 2016. Ben’s passion for nutrition started at a young age as he tried to understand how the foods that he was putting into his body was affecting what he would perform in high school athletics. He would slowly research food on his own to better know what to eat. Entering college, he took a class on general nutrition. At this same time his father was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer and had a very difficult time with his nutrition. This is when his father started meeting with a Registered Dietitian. Ben was able to see the impact that proper nutrition had on his father’s health. To this day Ben believes if it wasn’t for proper nutrition his father would not be with us today.
During college Ben was able to take what he was learning about food and apply it to his everyday life as he was competing on the University Track and Field team as a pole vaulter. In his free time, he still enjoys coaching pole vault and staying active through weight lifting, biking, rock climbing, and snowboarding.
Ben’s passion for health and wellness has brought him many opportunities to work with a diverse group of people from high school and Division 1 athletes to the geriatric population. Since 2016 Ben has been able to help numerous people control their blood sugar and have helped over 100 people with weight loss. He also has experience in heart health, chronic kidney disease, tube feeding, IBS, and malnutrition
