Dan Saylor is a Tennessee transplant from the deserts of Arizona. He grew up in a small town outside of Phoenix, working on his family’s cotton farm. After high school, he discovered that the change of climate was a good thing, going to school in Flagstaff at Northern Arizona University and falling in love with the mountains and graduating with a degree in exercise science in 1996. He then decided to stay at NAU and received his masters in physical therapy in 2000 and transitional doctorate in PT in 2007. In 2001, he joined STAR after being lured east by his wife Ann, a native Tennessean from Knoxville who was working in Nashville at the time.
Dan has worked in many clinics serving many communities for STAR, beginning in Goodlettsville in 2001 and eventually opening an onsite clinic with Tyson Foods there in 2003. He then moved down to open a clinic in Nolensville, TN, in 2005 before being asked to take over the clinic in Ashland City, TN in 2006. In 2009, he was moved again to his current clinic in Pleasant View, as well as taking on a Regional Director role and overseeing clinics in Cheatham and Montgomery counties, a position he continues to hold.
Dan and his wife Ann reside in the Pleasant View community and they have three children. He is active in the Cheatham County Chamber of Commerce, also serving on the Business Advisory Board for the Town of Pleasant View. Dan and Ann are active serving as deacons in their local church, 24 Church, heading the small group ministry together.
