Jacob Pollard is making a difference in Alaska! He grew up an athlete, playing and training year-round in baseball, basketball, and football. In high school, he helped take his football team to the Idaho State Championship twice. He also earned the rank of Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts of America, instilling in him a sense of adventure and a passion for service. Jacob served for two years in Russia on a church mission. He attended Brigham Young University where he took an anatomy course and became fascinated with the complexities and systems of the human body. This, along with his experience as an athlete, drove Jacob to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Idaho State University. Jacob is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association. His ongoing love of sports led him to coach girl’s high school basketball following his graduation.
Jacob loves working with patients, finding the root of their problems and improving their lives! He strives to become the physical therapist you trust to return to time and time again for the different injuries that happen throughout life. He began his Physical Therapy career in Wisconsin working as a travelling Physical Therapist. He then worked at an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Idaho before deciding to come north to Alaska and open Empower Physical Therapy.
Jacob is married to his wife Kiley and they have two boys that keep them active and happy! Their appreciation for adventure and community make for a perfect fit with the Alaska life! When not working, Jacob loves to spend his time playing sports, being outside with his family, travelling, hiking and camping. He loves Alaska and the amazing opportunity he gets to live in such a beautiful place.
