Eric has lived in Hamburg, NY most of his life. He and his wife, Laura, both enjoyed growing up in the Village of Hamburg and loved the feeling of community there, so they decided to raise their three children, Tyler, Ella, and Garrett, in the same community. Eric graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2000 and began working for Buffalo Rehab Group in 2002.
Eric has served as Chief Clinical Officer of Buffalo Rehab Group since 2017 and heads clinician skill development and strategy initiatives for the company. These initiatives create an environment for lifelong learning and ensure the company’s vision of providing exceptional results and an extraordinary experience to the community.
As a lifelong athlete and hockey player, Eric has suffered injuries that have required Physical Therapy. Injuries sustained in high school sparked his initial interest in the profession. He successfully overcame his injuries, played hockey throughout college, and continues to play today. In addition to playing, Eric spends much of his free time coaching and volunteering with local hockey organizations. After college, Eric volunteered his time rehabbing University at Buffalo D1 athletes. Additionally, he has also created and delivered many community programs for high school and club athletes in a variety of sports, focusing on performance and injury prevention. These programs have utilized DorsaVi for performance assessment and both our KneeSmart and SkateSmart dynamic warmups.
Outside of work and sports, Eric and his family are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy hiking in the Adirondacks or visiting U.S. National Parks. Also, lovers of theatre and the arts, Eric and his family have season tickets to Shea’s and attend various community arts events and high school musical productions each year.
