TJ graduated from Ithaca College with a BS in Exercise Science in 2007. After this he worked as a medical assistant in a family medicine setting for 3 years until he started at OHSU to work toward his Master of Physician Assistant Studies in 2011. He started at CHAOS immediately after graduating in 2013.
TJ lives in Oregon City. He loves the office and community in Salem so the commute is more than worth it. He loves to play board games, the classics are fine but his family has a large collection of obscure ones. He loves to play them with his wife and friends and looks forward to playing with his daughter who was born in 2021. He is a huge fan of Marvel and other superhero stories as he has always loved mythology and he views these as the mythologies of our time. He is also very dedicated to physical fitness and ideally exercises 5 days a week (if the busyness of life permits).
