Get to Know Matt:
Matt was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska - and yes, he is a big Huskers fan! When it was time for college, he moved to Kansas City and attended college at Rockhurst for both undergrad and physical therapy school.
He chose Rockhurst because they had a soccer program and a P.T. program. He's adopted Sporting K.C., Chiefs and Royals to cheer for and occasionally attend a game.
His wife (Katie) and 3 boys (Miles, Graham, and Camden) love to travel and explore the outdoors. Last summer, they rented an R.V. and traveled to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons – they loved it so much they are planning several more R.V. trips.
Another favorite is visiting his in-laws in Salida, CO, and taking day trips to explore CO. He loves to hear suggestions for great outdoor places to explore - locally and across the country.
Outside of work, he is busy keeping up with his boys. The oldest, Miles, is a self-taught D.J. working mostly school activities and 5k’s/marathons since he was in 3rd grade. Graham and Camden are busy with various sporting events.
Harper- we can’t forget about the family dog!

Get to Know Brett:
Brett was born and raised in the Kansas City area, where he spent most of his time playing basketball and other sports. During Brett's four years in undergrad at Arkansas, he played on their rugby team. This led him to work in Fort Worth, TX, not only as a physical therapist but also as an assistant coach of T.C.U.'s rugby team!
Outside of organized sports and work, Brett is either watching sports, exploring the outdoors, traveling, hiking, hunting, or doing something else adventurous!
One of his favorite things about being back in Kansas City is being a short trip away from Table Rock Lake. While at Table Rock, he spends hours fishing, riding horses, skiing, wakeboarding, and even barefooting! He's also happy that it is much more convenient to attend the Royals and Chiefs games!
When you meet Brett, be sure to ask him about his most recent adventure or give him a recommendation of a new place to check out in Kansas City!
