I grew up in north San Diego County, and was always drawn to sports. I loved competing, being part of a team, and of course winning. I played as hard as I could through high school but studied just as hard, knowing that I would not be able to make a living as an athlete. I realized that college was the most sensible path forward. I had always been fascinated by anatomy, physiology, and the human body, and decided to pursue a career in physical therapy. I attended California State University Fresno, where I received a bachelor of science degree in physical therapy in 1995, then went on to complete a master of physical therapy degree in 1997. I returned to southern California after graduating, and have been delivering physical therapy services to the communities surrounding Temecula since 2003. I practice in general outpatient orthopedics, and prefer to treat a variety of conditions. After 25 years of patient care, I still enjoy working to help people feel and move better every day. I look forward to sharing my knowledge, and experience to help you achieve your goals for recovery.
