Oriana has lived in both Northern and Southern California, and even though she’s been in San Diego for over half her life now, she still feels like a Bay Area native. She started off as an art student in San Francisco, but life led her to teaching yoga, and within months of doing so she knew she wanted to go back to school for Physical Therapy. She’s had years of working in the service industry in San Diego while going teaching yoga and going through her PTA program. While in school, she learned about the pediatric world and Pelvic Health, and fell in love with both immediately. These are now her two favorite populations to treat! Also, while in school she became really passionate about helping people in her community connect with their body. She began creating online content during the pandemic and has continued to do so to this day. She loves working at RU due to the great community atmosphere here, and looks forward to helping you connect with your body just a little bit better.
