My Story

I fell in love with running while competing for my high school cross country and track team in San Jose. I went on to compete for the San Jose State University cross country team where I received my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in 2005. While at SJSU, I was a scholar athlete, served as a team captain and became an assistant coach after I finished my running eligibility. It was here that I discovered my passion to help others recover from injury, and decided to pursue a career in Physical Therapy.

I was accepted in University of Southern California’s #1 ranked Physical Therapy program and graduated with my Doctor in Physical Therapy in 2010. Since graduation, I have been successfully working with athletes to return to their sport in an orthopedics and sports setting, including Santa Clara University’s athletic training department. My philosophy is to treat the whole body, using the kinetic chain model, to find the root source of the injury.  My post-partum recovery 4 years ago piqued my interest in women’s pelvic health.  This led to focusing my continuing education courses specifically in treating women with pelvic floor dysfunction.

In my journey to treat the body as a whole, I applying osteopathic techniques as part of my assessment and treatment plan. Due to this approach, clients are having faster results, reporting they “feel better in their whole body”, returning to their daily activities and sport quicker with improve performance.
