Garrick has always had a passion for helping others. It only took a brief job shadow to start him on the path to becoming a physical therapist. He completed Bachelors of Science Degree in Health Promotion from Canadian University College in Alberta Canada. During college, he managed to find time to play competitive hockey and become director for a local youth mentorship program.
Garrick graduated in 2006 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree from Loma Linda University in California. He knew Alaska was the place to call home. He moved to Wasilla and started practicing Physical Therapy with an emphasis on Orthopedics.
Over the last decade Garrick has cared for thousands of clients in the Mat-Su Valley. He has attended hundreds of hours of continuing education, and works closely with clients to help them overcome pain and functional limits so they can return to work and get back to enjoying all that Alaska has to offer.
Garrick believes that helping people goes beyond the walls of the clinic, he has given his time volunteering for local groups such as; Family Promise, Walk for Hope, Special Olympics, and coaching local youth hockey organizations.
In his spare time he enjoys backcountry snowboarding, hockey, snow-machining, flying, and spending time in nature with his young family.
