Dr Shippee began his passion for running, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle many years ago. Having been raised in a very active community in California, where hiking, mountain biking, and surfing were a staple. Dr Shippee later moved to Utah where he attended the University of Utah earning a degree in Exercise and Sport Science. It was there one of his kinesiology professors highlighted the Podiatric profession. Later, he took up running races and triathlons and began to develop foot pain.
Knowing a neighbor who was a foot doctor and visiting his office to see what that profession involved, he was hooked. Since graduating from Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine he’s enjoyed the focus of podiatry on an active lifestyle and working with both young and old. He frequently will give free community lectures for hospitals, clubs or classes focusing on exercise and its benefits on weight management. He also offers free video gait analysis in his various office locations, which range from Idaho to Brigham City Utah.
