Biography: Hanna has been in San Diego since 2012. She obtained her bachelor’s degree at SDSU and has since fallen in love with San Diego. Hanna wanted to stay in San Diego and went to the University of St. Augustine in San Marcos, CA to pursue her Doctor of Physical Therapy. While attending SDSU, she volunteered at a local outpatient physical therapy clinic.
During Hanna’s clinical rotations, she was able to travel to Tennessee, New Orleans, and Los Angeles to work in outpatient physical therapy clinics. Through these rotations, she was able to gain experiences with orthopedics, geriatrics, sports, and neurological populations.
