Executive Director

Chris Leeuw is the Founder and Executive Director of NeuroHope, a 501(c)3 outpatient physical therapy clinic that specializes in recovery from neurologic injury. In August of 2010, Chris sustained an incomplete c4 spinal cord injury that initially left him paralyzed from the neck down. Throughout his two-year recovery process, he traveled to clinics across the country that combined aggressive therapy with integrated wellness programs at affordable rates to help patients maximize recovery after insurance visits were exhausted. In 2012, he returned home walking, independent, and determined to create a like-minded facility in Indiana. NeuroHope opened doors to its first patients in February of 2015.

Prior to his spinal cord injury and recovery, Chris worked in television news at stations in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, and Ft. Myers FL in both production and as an on-air reporter. He also served as Sr. Instructional Designer at Indianapolis-based, a CRM specialized for healthcare providers.
