Hal received his degree in Exercise Science from Georgia State University and earned a certification as an exercise physiologist from the American College of Sports Medicine. After spending a 4 month internship at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital's Rehabilitation and Fitness Center, Hal developed a passion for helping patients get stronger regardless of their fitness level, age, or any underlying medical conditions. At Creekside, Hal hopes to ensure that patients are not only educated on how to exercise safely and effectively during rehab, but leave physical therapy with the knowledge and tools to maintain an active lifestyle on their own.
A recent transplant to the Portland area from Atlanta, Hal enjoys exploring the outdoors and Portland's incredible restaurant scene. Some of Hal's other interests include weight lifting, playing competitive ultimate frisbee, and taking care of his many houseplants.
