Ryan has been involved in sports throughout his life, playing football, basketball, baseball, and soccer growing up. This led him to pursue a degree in Athletic Training to work with injured athletes from a variety of sports. Ryan has provided care for NFL, NCAA, professional, semi-professional, and high school athletes.

Ryan began working at Atlanta Sport and Spine in 2020 and has performed extensive continuing education in outpatient orthopedics, injury prevention, biomechanical, and sport physical therapy. He works with patients of all ages with specialties in knee rehab, shoulder rehab, back/neck injuries, foot/ankle rehab, and athletic problems. With his athletic training experience, he has a great background working with athletic injuries such as concussions, muscle strains, tendonitis, and overuse injuries.

When not treating patients, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife, Carol, practicing his Catholic Faith, and volunteering at his local church. Ryan and Carol have been married since September 2019.
