Athletic & Training Background

I have been an athlete ever since my soccer and swim team days as 6 year old in Sacramento. During high school, I was a 5-sport Varsity athlete: cross country, track, soccer, water polo, swimming. During my 20's, I ran 5 marathons, countless 5k & 10k races and competed in Sprint & Olympic distance triathlons.

I am one of 1500 board-certified sports physical therapists in the nation.

Professional Philosophy

As a clinician, my treatment philosophy focuses on the goal of optimizing healing and movement for the entire body. I utilize manual therapy, soft tissue techniques, breathing & postural restoration with integration of therapeutic exercise-driven treatment strategies to correct both painful and dysfunctional movement patterns throughout the body. I believe in a one-on-one treatment model in order to treat each patient individually with the most effective, evidence-based outcomes. I am passionate about health & movement, striving to enable each patient to reach their own physical therapy & athletic performance goals.
