For our third installment of Meet Your Peak Team we are focusing on Brad McMahon

Brad is a native to the Fox Valley, originally from Little Chute.  He graduated with high honors from Carroll College with a Bachelor of Science Biology degree.  He then went on to earn his Master of Physical Therapy from Caroll as well.  Brad has several continuing education and professional accomplishments to his credit, as well as volunteer work with numerous local organizations.  Since there are too many to list, they can be found on Peak’s website.

Now let’s get to know Brad a little more in depth, starting with two truths and a lie:

  1. Brad caught marlin while on a fishing trip in Mexico
  2. An avid fisherman he’s been a boat owner since high school
  3. Brad has had three ACL surgeries

We asked Brad to share some of his personal interests and things that keep him busy outside of Peak.

“I have a beautiful, loving wife and three busy boys ages 8, 5, and 3.  We try staying as active as possible since the boys have an enormous amount of energy.  We love the outdoors and take part in several activities that get us outside.  This winter my wife and I will be traveling to Breckenridge, CO for a downhill skiing trip; this will be our 3rd time skiing out west. ”   

“Last winter we loaded up the minivan and the 5 of us took a road trip to Destin, FL for spring break.  We rented a beach house with 4 couples and had 11 kids under the age of 9 under one roof!  The 17 hour trip went much better than expected and we are thinking about attempting it again next month.”

“I enjoy any activities or sports that get me outdoors. I am an avid fisherman and love to fish bass tournaments throughout the summer.   In the fall I turn to another passion of mine-hunting!  Last September I was lucky enough to get my first bear tag. The whole family got involved in the baiting process.  Even though my hunt was unsuccessful, I learned a lot and was able to capture tons of action on my trail cam; I had a lot of fun!”

After reading Brad’s bio do you think you figured out the answer to his 2 Truths and a Lie?

The lie is number one!  Brad did go on a fishing trip while in Mexico and while catching marlin was the goal, he only caught barracuda.

As I’m sure you took from above, Brad enjoys fishing.  He really has been a boat owner since high school and adds that he even took one with him to college so he could fish!

Lastly, Brad has had three operations on his ACL.  He initially tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) while playing football in college.  He had two subsequent ACL surgeries following graft failures.  The rehab Brad had following this ACL surgery provided him an amazing first hand learning experience.  If you find yourself in his care,  you can trust that he truly has empathy for you’re going through having been there himself.

Hopefully you enjoyed getting to know more Brad, another great piece of the amazing team we’ve assembled at Peak!
