Nicholas Fendt, PT, DPT, joined IBJI team in Morton Grove shortly after graduation from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in 2016. Before completing his doctorate degree, Nicholas worked as an interior architect in corporate design, during which time he lived in both New York and London. He decided to pursue a PT degree after spending most of his life teaching children and adults swimming and aquatic exercise, while also facing his own challenges of scoliosis. He enjoys educating his patients about their bodies and helping them learn how to heal and use their body more efficiently.
While attending physical therapy school, Nicholas worked at Northwestern Hospital and University of Michigan's Medsport Domino Farms complex. At Medsport, he worked with high-performance athletes and pediatric patients, which he found both challenging and rewarding. His many years of experience as a charitable cheerleader and cheer coach helps him continue his passion for working with athletes and active people of all ages and interests.
Originally from Wisconsin, Nicholas likes to keep busy with gardening, woodworking, and baking. He has recently taken up running and is an avid swimmer. He enjoys spending time with his friends and adorable nieces and nephew, going to the theater, and exploring Chicago's unique neighborhoods.
