Aaron is a 4th generation resident of Northern Michigan. He and his wife Deb have twin one year old daughters, Grace and Annie. They also have a black lab named Gus who occasionally acts as the Kalkaska location’s mascot.
Aaron graduated from Kalkaska High School in 2006 before earning his bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Cornerstone University. He received his doctorate in physical therapy from University of Michigan in 2015, and completed a fellowship in Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute in 2016.

Nick has been practicing physical therapy for about 7 years in the Traverse City area. After graduating with his Doctorate in physical therapy, Nick went on to complete a fellowship at the Gray Institute. In this fellowship, Nick developed effective diagnostic skills and learned how to create an optimal treatment plan based on the diagnosis. More importantly, he learned how the entire body connects and how we must look above and below the painful area to truly find the solution for pain relief. Nick and his wife Sara love the outdoors. Whether it is running, cycling, hiking, swimming, yardwork, or even doing PT outdoors, you’ll often find Nick outside. When you work with Nick, you will immediately notice his ability to engage with you and you will have his undivided attention during your treatment session. Nick strives to make the rehab process enjoyable, fun, and effective.

Hi, I’m Lisa Thompson. I am from northern Michigan. I’m from a large family and grew up in a small town; Marion, where most of my family still lives. I have 2 younger sisters whom I enjoy spending time with playing softball, cards/games or just relaxing and catching up.
I did my undergraduate work at Spring Arbor University, graduating with my BS and my doctoral degree from Central Michigan University. I have continued my education post graduate school, and have earned my COMT from the Manual Therapy Institute. I love being a therapist and treating patients. It’s a rewarding career and I have met some great people along the way.
My husband, Caleb, and I love northern Michigan. We enjoy hiking, the beaches and being outdoors. We have 2 small children: Robyn who is 2 and Harold (Harry) who is 5 months. They are so much fun and a blessing to watch as they grow, learn and discover everything for the first time. We have 2 dogs; Bentley and Shelby. We like to go for family walks with the dogs and kids. We love to take weekend trips for family adventures. I also play a lot of slow-pitch softball during the summer months, which is a lot of fun and makes up a lot of weekend trips.
