BIOGRAPHY

  • Jennifer is originally from the East Bay in Northern California. She went to UCLA for undergrad where she majored in Biokinesiology and Physiology, and participated in a 3 year sports medicine internship. She worked with Division I athletes to rehabilitate acute injuries and return to high levels of play. She then completed her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at USC, where she earned a merit based scholarship and an award in the Foundational Sciences. While at USC she had the opportunity to work in outpatient orthopedics, sports medicine clinics, and skilled nursing facilities. She gained more experience working with the chronic pain population at the Northern California Functional Restoration Program and has studied treatment practices such as graded motor imagery, sensory integration and pain neuroscience education. She is passionate about making connections with people and working with them to form individualized rehabilitation plans that are effective and realistic for every lifestyle. She believes physical therapy is all about treating people holistically to allow them to return to doing the things they love and decrease risk of reinjury.
