I had a pivotal moment in my life during my junior year while attending California Lutheran University. I was going to school on a football scholarship, looking forward to the new season. During one of my games, I suffered a major rupture of the hamstring muscle in my upper thigh and was unable to continue playing the sport I loved.

After an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon, I was told I may never be able to return to playing football. Feeling devastated, I battled depression and feared my leg would never recover. A good friend of mine then recommended an orthopedic physical therapist in the area. Amazingly after only three treatments, I was back to jogging. Following her training regimen, I made great progress and was back in shape a few months before the start of my senior year.

That year I was named as one of the team captains and felt as good as I ever have physically. It was my best year of football. This profound experience changed my path and I knew I wanted work in a field that would change people’s lives like mine was changed that year.

My goal is to help you regain your life and improve your vitality as you follow my systematic approach with this program.

I completed my doctorate in 2007 from Loma Linda University. I transitioned my career to promote health and wellness by becoming a certified health coach. As a doctoral trained physical therapist, I understands the science and physiology of how our eating habits will immediately improve and prolong our lives.

From 2007 to the present, I have had the opportunity to practice in a variety of settings. These settings include acute care in hospitals, short- and long-term rehabilitation, and home health.

I look forward to working with you and guiding you to reach your goals.
