Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
It found me. I’m originally from Amador County and received a baseball scholarship to San Diego State University, where I received my bachelor’s degree in athletic training. I was chronically injured my senior year, and the irony was no therapies helped me. When I graduated, I was hired at the Egoscue Method in San Diego, a clinic famous for fixing Jack Nicklaus’ back by addressing postural issues and not pain, which also helped relieve my pain. In 1997, I started Symmetry and have since received a patent for my software and the device I created, P.A.T. (Postural Assessment Tool), which measures postural deviations and plugs the information into the software to create individualized corrective exercise routines.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
I have a great situation in that my staff includes just me! Part of what I pride myself on is the personal touch I give my clients. I have another aspect of my business where I certify practitioners (massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, etc.) in Symmetry, so in essence I’m franchising my business to those who already have a staff, in order to expand and grow Symmetry.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Seeing my clients heal themselves and realizing they don’t have to rely on me to keep them out of pain. Also, I can make my own schedule in order to spend more time with my family.
If you could be any other profession, what would it be?
Playing for the Dodgers! I came close in college, hitting .390 and earning MVP my senior year, but ironically my injuries lead me to what I’m doing now and I have no regrets.
And finally, customer service is…?
Treating people as if they have purpose for your life – never take anything or anyone for granted.
