Currently, he is a Doctor of Chiropractic, manual therapist and owner of Flag City Sport & Spine in Findlay, Ohio.

Additionally, as a member of the Elite Provider Network, he provides corporate wellness through Active Release Techniques' Corporate Solutions program. Chris currently services two locations of a Fortune 500 company, where he assists in reducing and eliminating workplace injuries and improving employee health.

“I felt that I was leaps and bounds ahead of my classmates when it came to actually treating patients, since I had been doing it since my freshman year at Heidelberg. My background in anatomy and physiology also surpassed that of most of my classmates. Overall, I feel a large portion of my success after school is a result of the ATEP program as well, as it has opened doors not available to many of my colleagues, and afforded me the opportunity to communicate with other professionals early on in my education, which carried over to building bridges in my professional career.”
