      Michelle, an Orange County native, became interested in physical therapy by following and integrating her two passions of both physiology and exercise. She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiology.

      She has over a decade of experience riding horses and instructing biomechanically correct horseback riding that benefits both horse and rider in order for them, as a team, to reach their utmost potential.

      After graduating from the University of Colorado, Michelle moved back to California to obtain a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, in San Marcos, CA. She graduated from St. Augustine with high honors in 2019. She has hands-on experience with treating a wide array of diagnoses in many different stages of care from her clinical internships.

      Michelle is eager to apply her up-to-date research-based knowledge and make a positive and lasting impact in the lives of her patients. She believes in analyzing the entire kinetic chain, as the body is a closely linked system of interdependent segments.

With this approach, she emphasizes movement that is biomechanically correct, resulting in minimized risk for re-injury. Michelle enjoys staying active by riding horses, running, hiking, and mountain biking.
