He graduated from the University of Texas with Honors in 1994, and completed his Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy at Texas Woman's University in Houston in 1997.

Doug's special interests and skills include wheelchair seating for maximum functionality and making therapy fun for kids. He loves to hike, camp, climb things, run, and bike, and is up for any physical challenge. Fortunately, his enthusiasm and confidence often bring out the same in others. He and his wife, Stephanie, also a physical therapist, live in Austin with their three children, two dogs, and turtle.
