Meet Vijay

 
Vijay Kumar was born and raised in India.  His parents worked as educators and, from an early age, instilled an understanding that nothing in life should be given to you - everything must be earned through hard work. 
 
He came to our great country in the early stages of his life with just a few dollars in his pocket.  He attended Boston University where he earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and a PhD, and continued his education to Xavier University School of Medicine (MD) and George Washington University, where he is currently completing a Masters in Public Health.  Vijay worked full time while attending class and paid his way through school. 
 
Upon receiving his degree, Vijay and his wife sought somewhere to live. While visiting friends that lived in Northern Michigan, they decided that West Branch was the place they wanted to call home and raise their family.  They fell in love with the small-town atmosphere, hard working people, and tight-knit community values.  
 
Vijay founded and operates Community Rehabilitation Services, a number of advanced physical therapy clinics located throughout Northern Michigan.  His five offices are in St. Helen, Rose City, Hale (Agility Physical Therapy), West Branch and Prescott (Adapt Physical Therapy).  Vijay's practices employ nearly 100 Northern Michigan residents and he operates a program to hire military veterans at his offices. 
 
Community Service
 
As a business owner and doctor, I understand that talk is cheap. Involvement in local, regional, and state issues is critical for effective problem solving and should be demanded from our Representatives in Lansing and D.C. The ability to serve as your next State Representative would allow me to continue giving back to the community that has given me everything. 
Here are a few of the many organizations I have been honored to be a part of:
  •          Active Provider at Ogemaw Free Clinic
  •          First Responder with the local Red Cross
  •          Member of the Rose City Lions Club
  •          Member of the West Branch Optimist Club
  •          Life Member of the Ogemaw County Genealogical and Historical Society
 
Leadership
 
In addition to volunteering some of my free time, I have been appointed and elected to several offices, including:
  •          Chairman of the State Board of Physical Therapy
  •          Treasurer of the Rose City/Lupton Chamber of Commerce
  •          Member of the Ogemaw County Zoning Board of Appeals
  •          Treasurer of the Ogemaw County Republican Party
  •          Member of the Executive Committee for the 4th Congressional District.
