toddTodd grew up in Harlan, Iowa.  He attended Harlan Community High School where he participated in football, basketball, track and baseball.  In 1988, Todd graduated with a BS in Biology from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa and went on to earn his degree in Physical Therapy from the Mayo School of Health-Related Sciences in Rochester, Minnesota (1990).


After graduation, Todd moved to Pensacola, Florida where he began working with both neurological and orthopedically injured patients in out-patient settings.  After 7 years, he left Pensacola to attend Oral Roberts University's School of Theology and Missions in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He completed not only his Masters of Divinity (2001), but also his post-graduate training with the McKenzie Institute, USA, earning his CertMDT (Certified Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment) for treatment of spinal injuries in 1998. During that time, Todd also married Raquel (ORU 1993) in 2003 and now have 4 children.

Todd and Raquel moved to Charlotte, North Carolina shortly after getting married.  Once in Charlotte, Todd continued to work bi-vocationally as a PT and youth pastor and served for a season as the Senior Pastor of a local congregation.  During that time, God directed Todd to step away from pastoral ministry in the “typical” setting and to begin a faith-based out-patient Physical Therapy Center in Monroe, North Carolina.  The PT Center opened its doors on February 26, 2009 and has continued to grow since that time.

Zach grew up in Charlotte, NC where he attended Providence High School and participated in both football and track.  Following high school, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning a BA with Highest Honors in Exercise and Sport Science.  Zach then attended East Carolina University where he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2013.  He has also obtained certification as a Performance Enhancement Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

Zach began his career in physical therapy after working as a Strength & Conditioning Coach for the football teams of both UNC Chapel Hill and Providence High School.  Physical therapy offered a more challenging and rewarding experience and Zach was drawn towards a career more focused on improving the quality of people’s lives.

In addition to working as a physical therapist, Zach has written multiple fitness articles and began his own website,, which focuses on injury prevention and improving athletic performance.  

While enrolled at both UNC and ECU, Zach was highly involved in research related to the field of physical therapy.  His work on interventions to enhance the quality of life in breast cancer patients was presented at the UNC Symposium of Research in 2010.  At the 2013 ECU Creative Achievement Week, his research on the effects of manual therapy techniques to improve rehabilitation from lower extremity injuries was awarded as being the best graduate health presentation.  This research was also featured at the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association Conference.

Zach currently resides in Matthews and in his spare time enjoys CrossFit, sports, woodcarving, and being outdoors.
