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!

Most recently, I have become certified in treating Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Research says 1-4 women will experience leakage of urine during running,coughing, laughing, or sneezing between the ages of 20-60 years. Neurological re-education of the pelvic floor with functional movements such as sitting standing or 1/2 lunges gives better outcomes than the Kegels exercises. I enjoy any sport having to do with water. I have competed on a National level in water skiing, windsurfing and paddle-boarding in Santa Cruz. On weekends, you may see me hiking around the Bay Area with my husband of 35 years and dog Koa.
My passion to work in the physical therapy profession comes with my love for sports. The ability to provide rehab to an athlete to get back to their best form again or assisting a patient to attain mobility again excites me and gives me a sense of pride. After volunteering at various nursing facilities, Hospitals and Physical therapy clinics, I decided to pursue my associates degree in Physical therapy assistant at Carrington college, Pleasant Hill.

I’ve wanted to work in the physical therapy profession since attending physical therapy sessions as a competitive high school swimmer in Southern California. I graduated in April 2016 from Northwestern University’s graduate program with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree, and gained extensive experience in diagnosing and treating patients with neurological, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal conditions. I enjoy the challenge of working in outpatient physical therapy because I’m always thinking of and researching creative, new ways to treat my patients. Prior to my physical therapy studies, I attended Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles, California, earning my B.S. in biology. In my off time, I enjoy hiking, swimming, baking, watching movies, and hanging out with friends.

Katy received her Rock Blades certification on October 15, 2016.
I graduated from Fresno State with my B.S. in Kinesiology in 2013 and Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2016. I became interested in physical therapy after it helped me return from a sporting injury in high school. This experience, in addition to my passion for anatomy and helping others, made it clear that physical therapy is what I was meant to do. During my time at Fresno State/clinical rotations I developed a keen interest in outpatient orthopedics and the management of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
After spending 7 years in Fresno, I am excited to be home and help give back to the community that has given me so much. I was raised in Pleasanton and grew up playing a variety of sports including baseball, football, track and field, and swimming.
