His guilty pleasures are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, telling “dad” jokes, and listening to sports radio. An outdoor enthusiast, Dr. Wight is equally happy to be in a saddle in the wilderness with friends, or doing “cookies” with his kids in his boat on the river. He plays backup guitar for a singing group called the “Great Wights” behind his incognito Clark Kent glasses. He and his wife Erin are the parents of 5 amazing children.

Jote Wight — Physical Therapist
From a young age, Jote has has a passion for people and health care. His training in physical therapy began at age 17 when he worked as a therapy tech during his years at Skyline High School.

Jote and his wife Kira are parents to 3 exceptional children who enjoy spending time with their dad above all else. They think his superpowers are his patience and his coaching skills. His PT patients agree!
Off the court, Jote and his family love to be outdoors running, hiking, or biking. He has raced in several triathlons, marathons, and a half iron man. His ideal dinner partner is Kira, and they would be eating spicy pork morenitas tacos as a last meal. If Jote could be a cartoon character, he and Ryan would be duking it out for the rights to be “Jerry”. If you’re wanting to increase your abilities and feel better, or recover from an injury, come see Jote at InMotion Physical Therapy where you are sure to have a positive experience and outcome.

A graduate of Pocatello High School, Krista has worked in the banking and construction industries and loves to spend time with her two amazing kids outdoors hiking, waterskiing, and snow skiing.
