I am the clinics Physical therapy assistant. This is perfect for me because I have always loved being active working with and helping others. I played sports growing up and would motivate my friends to join me. Practiced gymnastics for 13 years and loved how it challenged my mind and body. Went to college in Santa Barbara where I received my AA in liberal arts to transfer to a 4 year school. I looked into physical therapy after many friends and family members told me that this profession would be perfect for me. Pursued my education at Carrington College and received a degree for physical therapy assisting. Love coming to work every day because I get to work with people and make them feel better! I enjoy the challenge of working with athletes, but I also love helping elderly gain their independence. On my free time I love traveling, hiking, being with friends, and always looking for new experiences!

M.S.P.T.

In middle school, my brother broke his leg while we were messing around in the back yard. My mom said that since I was partially to blame for his injury, then I was to be his main caretaker at home. Naturally, it started with “get me this and that, get me ice cream, etc.”, but eventually, I was helping him with his crutches and then his leg and balance exercises. I felt a sense of pride with my brother’s full recovery and decided to pursue P.T. professionally. After earning a B.S. in Biology, I studied at Boston University where I earned my MSPT in Physical Therapy. 

I worked at and eventually managed an outpatient P.T. clinic in Vallejo, CA for ten years, then spent 7 plus years at a post-acute rehab center in Danville, CA where I gained experience in treating patients with strokes, amputations, total hip and knee replacements, fractures from falls and a host of other diagnoses. 

Outside of work, I fancy myself as an amateur entomologist and have an extensive butterfly collection. As for my brother – he owns an ice cream shop in L.A.

Born and raised in Walnut Creek, I graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.

Through my 6 months in rehab, I felt truly cared for by the support staff and left inspired by the knowledge of the therapists and how profound an impact it’d had on me. From that point onwards, I developed a passion for the health care profession and helping others.

As a physical therapist, I take an evidence-based approach to my practice and am always trying expand my knowledge in the field. In the near future I plan on becoming an Orthopedic Certified Specialist to further help people with their injuries.

DeAnna Pastor

P.T.A

Throughout my life I have always been athletic. I was a dancer for over 10 years, loved playing sports and being active. The moment I realized I wanted to have a career in physical therapy, was when I witnessed a home-health physical therapist work with my niece. At the time, it looked as if they were just playing, but little did I know it was so much more. As her visits progressed, she continued to get stronger and her mobility improved. Thus, my interest in physical therapy began. I attended Carrington College graduating with a degree in Physical Therapy Assisting. I love helping others and feel great happiness knowing I was a part of their rehabilitation process. I’m so happy to have found a career where I can make a difference in someone’s life.

 

During my free time, I love traveling and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I love exercising, going to the beach, and being outdoors!

Miranda Humbard

I believe there is nothing more fulfilling than helping others get back to living their best lives, which is why I chose physical therapy as my career. It also provides a rich working environment where I can bond with my patients as they progress towards their goals. I earned my degree in Physical Therapy Assisting at Carrington College and became licensed shortly after. My mission is to treat every patient holistically, with each session tailored to the individual’s needs. I plan to stay up to date on the latest research and learn more about chronic musculoskeletal conditions in order to provide the most effective care possible.
I spent part of my childhood living near Yosemite National Park where my passion for all things outdoors, such as camping and hiking, began. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, cooking, and painting. I am elated to serve my community through the healing powers of physical therapy here at Back on Track.
