John Majerus PT CLT

John obtained his degree in Biology from Loras College, Dubuque, where he also tore up the gridiron as a Duhawk. He did early work in genetics and ultimately followed with a P.T. degree from The University of Iowa in 1985. After establishing a thriving private practice in rural Iowa over his first decade as a therapist, he held a clinical faculty position in the doctorate program at Creighton University for 3 years. In his over 30 years of practice, he has earned additional certifications, including the Board Certification as an APTA Orthopedic Specialist, Certified Lymphedema Therapist, and more recently a TPI Golf Certification. During his 9 year tenure managing Rebound Rehabilitation,  he was active in building the programs which garnered much recognition. The professional interests he finds most engaging are foot and ankle dysfunction, patellar pain, the relationship between the hip and lumbar spine, and post-traumatic cervical spine dysfunction. When off work, he enjoys golf, watching football, cycling, and spending time with his wife, 5 children and 4 grandchildren.

Jodie Paschall-Majerus MPT

Jodie attended The University of Iowa for both her Exercise Science (BS ’89) and Physical Therapy degrees (MPT ’92). At the UI, she combined her love of competitive swimming and research in projects with both the Biomechanics and Physical Therapy Departments. After graduation, she spent 4 years working in a small town hospital setting in Southern Oregon, gaining a variety of experience. In 2000, she became one of the first therapists in the area to complete advanced training in edema management and has actively treated swelling disorders and wounds since that time. She expanded her practice to treatment of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, has training in the McKenzie Method, and an interest in Pilates. Jodie gave back to the profession through involvement in the APTA, both on state and national levels, on continuing education and legislative committees. Her personal interests include photography, cooking, and travel; the time that used to be dedicated to community theatre and master gardener training is now spent with her husband, children, chickens, and dog.

David Gofreed DPT CLT

Dave arrived from Baltimore in 2004 and all indications are that he’s gotten hooked by the Upper Left.  Of our staff, he wins the contest for having the most varied background of all.  He completed a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Illustration in 1999, then changed course in 2009 to research origins of life genetics at Portland State University for 5 years.  He graduated Summa Cum Laude from PSU in 2012 with a BS in Science including a minor in Biology.  His interests in physiological processes in healing as well as the mind/body connection were pursued further in Physical Therapy school at USC where he earned his DPT in 2017.  His special talents outside the clinic include Jazz and Blues harmonica; inside the clinic he gravitates toward movement, balance, and vestibular disorders.  Dave has also flourished as a Lymphedema therapist, bringing thoughtful attention to our swelling patients.  He lives in Portland with his wife; they enjoy many outdoor pursuits the PNW has to offer, especially, hiking, fishing and canoeing.

David Weston DPT CLT

David Weston came to Vancouver via Lake Oswego, Tacoma, and most recently, the Tar Heel state.  He studied Kinesiology at Pacific Lutheran University, earning his Bachelor of Science degree there in 2014; David followed with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Wingate University in North Carolina in 2017.  He gained a wide variety of experience through his clinical rotations, from providing therapy in a rural setting to working with a high volume of Sports Medicine patients in the gym and pool.  While working for ATI Physical Therapy in Oregon, he took advantage of many of their continuing education opportunities with nationally known presenters, continuing to hone his skill set. His approach combines manual therapy and functional exercise, ultimately translating to a solid home program and independent function.  David’s passion for sports extends to his activities outside the clinic – he is an avid ultimate frisbee player, enjoys football, loves a good hiking trail, and is a huge Blazers fan.  He and his wife, dog and cat had their life joyfully disrupted by a baby boy in the spring of 2021.
