Martin is a Colorado native, born and raised in Pueblo but tied to Montrose from birth. His father graduated from Montrose High School in 1949. Martin spent time every summer on Grandma’s farm in Shavano Valley feeding hogs and goofing off, mostly goofing off. After graduating high school Martin moved to Texas where he rambled around working construction and learning some very important life lessons along the way. Tearing a ligament in his knee on a construction site he got his first exposure to the fascinating world of physical therapy. Over the next years, he attended community college and the University of North Texas as he worked on his plan to complete a degree in Physical Therapy. In 1995, Martin graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch with a Master’s in Physical Therapy. Staying in Texas he worked to build and operate new physical therapy clinics for East Texas Medical Center for the next 7 years. In 2002 an opportunity was presented to move to Montrose and be the Director of Rehabilitation Services for Montrose Memorial Hospital. This allowed him to continue in his love of program building and develop MMH’s Mountain View Therapy. Martin developed a friendship with Gary Krabbe over the years and when Gary decided to sell In Motion Therapy, they laid the foundation for Martin and Lori to take over the business. This allowed Martin to continue to work at what he loves and be instrumental in developing services to provide the absolute best patient care and be an active community partner.
Martin absolutely loves the outdoor activities that the Montrose area offers. He loves to camp, fish and four-wheel with his lovely wife, Lori, and three children. He is an avid woodworker and has a hard time turning down the purchase of a new tool to accomplish that new project.
Martin and Lori are blessed to be in Montrose and call western Colorado home.

I grew up in deep East Texas. I had a busy high school life filled with sports and rodeo.I always excelled in anatomy and physical education and was always intrigued by sports injuries, especially as rodeo cowboys always seemed to get hurt doing what they loved. I started my education at Texas A&M – Corpus Christi in Pre-Athletic Training, but figured out that path wasn’t quite right for me. So after some thought, I changed gears ever so slightly and decided on Physical Therapy.
I applied to several different PTA programs across the southern and western states and Colorado was the first one I got accepted to. I already loved Colorado so I thought “why not”, packed up my stuff, and was all moved in two weeks later. I studied at Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, CO. The day after graduation (I could not leave behind the big city life of Denver fast enough) my roommate and I moved out to the western slope. I met my husband here in Montrose and I absolutely love living here and helping people get back to doing what they love. My hobbies include volleyball and most other sports, hiking/camping, horseback riding, and eating because I am just perpetually hungry.
