Lee’s passion for physical therapy started through his own brother’s rehabilitation in high school. He watched physical therapy transform his brother’s stability and performance through a combination of hard science and the art of human motion. He pursued the career first receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of California, Riverside in 1994. He then completed his Master’s degree in Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California in 1996. Following graduation, Lee worked as a staff physical therapist at Chapman Medical Center with post-operative cardiopulmonary patients and participated in related research. From late 1996 through 2006, he worked at ProSport Physical Therapy in Newport Beach, CA where he honed his outpatient orthopedic skills and served as the clinical director for eight years. During this time, Lee also served as the clinical coordinator for continuing education (CCCE) and taught therapeutic modalities/exercise at Concordia University in Irvine, CA as an adjunct professor. In addition, he volunteered annually as the Assistant Medical Coordinator for the Huntington Beach Pacific Shoreline Marathon (2001-2006).
In 2007, Lee moved to Fort Collins, Colorado and worked at Foothills Orthopedic and Sport Physical Therapy from 2007-2011. He later returned to California and rejoined his ProSport family in Newport Beach, CA in 2013. He currently works as the Regional Director of Operations for ProSport Physical Therapy Inc., overseeing operations throughout Southern California. Lee is married with one son and resides in Huntington Beach. With his free time, he loves camping with his family, playing guitar and mountain biking.
