Lead Physical Therapy Aide | Carmel Valley
Hometown: San Diego, California
Education: I attended Mater Dei Catholic High School and graduated in 2016. I also graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2020 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences.

Hobbies: I love playing basketball, going on hikes, going to the beach, and trying new foods!
Favorite Foods: I love Japanese, Korean, and Filipino food. Any type of Asian food hits the spot for me!
Whom You Admire / Favorite Mentor? My dad is definitely my biggest inspiration and mentor. He has always been very hardworking and dedicated to his family. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him.
Nickname: My mom calls me Jordy and my friends saw her nickname for me on her Facebook page. My friends started to use it as a joke, but a good number of them refer to me as Jordy now.
Fun Fact About You: I’m left handed! I’m also a huge fan of Grey’s Anatomy.
Biography: I was born and raised here in San Diego. I lived in Irvine for my 4 years of undergrad, but I have been back in San Diego since the beginning of quarantine. I plan to stay here until PA or PT school takes me elsewhere. Before Rehab United, I worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Orange as a Health Scholar. I also worked as a research assistant in neuro-critical care and cancer biology labs. I recently worked for CovClinic here in San Diego as a Covid-19 tester. I also currently volunteer at a food distribution center called Community Through Hope in Chula Vista.
During my time at UCI, I played on the club basketball team. I started playing and watching basketball at a young age, so I can definitely say that it is a passion of mine. I also really enjoy being outdoors, whether it be hiking or spending a day at the beach. I have a younger sister and we usually do these activities together. If I could have one superpower I think I would like to be able to teleport and/or fly. I love traveling, but if I could avoid drives or flights I would.
I have always had a passion for helping others. As I went through undergrad, I discovered my love for science. Working in the healthcare field allows me to serve others and gain scientific knowledge, which I both truly enjoy. I have been involved in sports for most of my life, and physical therapy allows me to stay connected to it. Rehab United has a very supportive, knowledgeable, and compassionate team. I wanted to be a part of the team and contribute to making RU a great place for its patients. In just a short amount of time, I have already learned so much. I truly look forward to expanding my physical therapy knowledge here at RU.
