Biography: I have lived in San Diego for my entire life except for the four years that I spent in Santa Cruz during my undergraduate studies. I love the weather, the beach, and the outdoor activities that San Diego offers and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Once I decided to make the career change to Physical Therapy, I reached out to Rehab United in search of volunteer and observational experience. I was blessed to be able to volunteer and work as an aide at both RU1 and RU4 as I was preparing to enter graduate school. My time at both places cemented my passion for helping people on their road to recovery and for the field of Physical Therapy as a whole.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am currently attempting to become a better golfer, but I would describe that as me fighting a losing battle. If I had to choose a super power, I would pick teleportation because I think it would be awesome to be able to go anywhere in the world in an instant.
I chose Rehab United because I was lucky enough to have previously worked with this company and their passion and knowledge in Physical Therapy is inspiring. I am excited to be a part of the team and look forward to what the future holds.
