Jordan Heisler, PTA

Jordan graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Minor in Media Analysis from Arizona State University in 2011. He then obtained his Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Whatcom Community College in 2016. Jordan was introduced to the field of physical therapy for the first time as a high school athlete. Even though it wasn’t always fun, the overall experience was quite positive which is what prompted him to pursue a career path as a PTA. Jordan loves this field of work because he gets to interact and build rapport with a very diverse population. He believes the best part of his job is being involved in a patient’s road to recovery (working closely with each person to help maximize their potential) so that they can achieve both their short and long-term goals. He has been a big Seattle sports fan since childhood. In addition to his passion for the Seahawks and Mariners, Jordan is a big advocate of bringing the Sonics back to Seattle. He also loves to travel – whether it’s visiting family in different parts of the country or flying to watch the Seahawks play on the road. In his spare time, you can find Jordan in the kitchen cooking, barbecuing outside on the grill, shooting hoops, attending sporting events, playing Madden on Xbox, or hanging out with friends.

Nick Carter, PT, DPT, Clinic Director

Why I’m a Physical Therapist: I knew early on I wanted to be a physical therapist when I began having chronic ankle sprains and started going to PT myself. MY PT made a big impact on my life and helped me to gain stability and strength that propelled me to greater heights in my sports. The ability to impact people’s lives in a positive way and allow them to achieve their personal goals has continued to push me to be a better physical therapist.

Continuing Education Commitment: My continuing education interests include completing a fellowship in manual therapy. I am also pursuing certification in additional spinal techniques for the state of Washington. I believe in continuously expanding my knowledge to include new research, and to prevent an atrophied mind. The stagnant mind gets left behind.

Personal Interests: My personal interests are varied including playing and watching sports, reading, hiking, swimming, hunting, fishing, television, and most importantly, spending time with friends and family.

Educational Background: I graduated from WSU Vancouver with honors and earned a B.S. in Biology. I then completed my DPT at Eastern Washington University.
