Dr. Darius Porter (he/him) grew up his whole life as a Tacoma, WA native, and graduated from Foss High School. He then graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Washington State University (Go Cougs!). While waiting to get accepted into a physical therapy program, Darius worked as a Physical Therapy Aide to build his knowledge base and gain experience. He was then accepted and completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy program from Hampton University in Virginia. During his education he has won the Bruya-Wood Conference Award for Critical Thinking and making it on the Dean’s list.
Darius’ passion for helping others comes from his own personal experience of inadequate care as a youth and wants his patient’s to not only know the benefits that Physical Therapy can provide, but also how to prevent future injuries later in life.
His hobbies include bowling, playing basketball, playing pool, golfing, attending sporting events and concerts.
