Brendan has been helping guests at our Arizona wellness resort since before he even joined the Canyon Ranch team.
When he first came to interview in Tucson, he encountered a gentleman in the gym who looked a little lost. “He asked me if I knew where a piece of equipment was because he'd forgotten where and how to do an exercise," Brendan recounts. "We walked around, found the equipment, and reviewed the exercise. He thanked me and said he was going to speak to someone about getting me a job here.”
This anecdote won’t surprise anyone who knows the longtime team physician who has volunteered on every court, field, diamond, or pitch you could imagine and has assisted in at least one miraculous recovery in the past.
Brendan came to Canyon Ranch after 33 years in private practice, as well as acting as a team physician for the World Championships, Pan American Games, Olympic trials, and National Championships. In his free time, you’ll find Brendan exercising, gardening, or reading. He’s passionate about volunteering and has lent 33 years of his time as a physician for athletic teams. His family also volunteers with Canine Companions, raising puppies for people with disabilities.
Brendan joined Canyon Ranch because he’s excited about helping people become healthier and enabling them to participate in activities at a higher level. When it comes to wellness, Brendan reminds guests to stay consistent in doing little things every day: “The little things don’t seem so hard—but they turn into the big things.”
