Kirk graduated from Georgia College and State University in 2010 with a degree in Athletic Training and upon passing the boards to become a Certified Athletic Trainer he decided to pursue his studies in Physical Therapy. He completed his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2013. Kirk performed research of the effects of laser therapy on muscle endurance and took elective classes in neuroscience and advance orthopedics.
Kirk has been involved in sports throughout his life playing baseball, track, and soccer growing up. This led him to pursuing a degree in Athletic Training to work with injured athletes from a variety of sports. Kirk has done clinical rotations providing care for collegiate basketball and football teams, high school football, track, wrestling, baseball, basketball, and tennis.
Kirk’s current clinical focus is in outpatient orthopedics, industrial rehab and neurologic physical therapy. Along with a great background and experience working with the athletic population he has clinical experience in working with concussions, balance problems, and Parkinson’s disease.
When not treating patients Kirk likes mountain biking, hiking, fishing and pretty much any activity outside. He is a big USA soccer fan along with being a lifelong Atlanta Braves fan. Kirk and his fiancée Andrea are getting married in October and are excited to be in the Atlanta area with family and friends.
