“I enjoy working closely with our communities and local industries to provide wellness as well as a wide range of specialized employment testing and helping others reach their healthcare goals.” says Green. “Whether it’s the student athlete getting back to full participation after an ACL injury, a weekend warrior back in the game after a hamstring strain, or the factory worker, fully rehabilitated and back at work after a surgery. “
“Through my many years at PTSC, I have met and developed numerous great relationships with coaches, athletes, parents, doctors, industrial leaders, and community members.” says Green. “Most of all, I have had the privilege of working with an exceptional work family who I can also call my friends.”
