Danielle’s love for physical therapy stemmed from being involved in sports her whole life, and needing physical therapy after sustaining an injury in high school. Her passion for getting involved in such a giving and exciting industry flourished from there and continued to grow when Danielle obtained her Bachelors of Science Degree in Kinesiology, Clinical Health – Exercise Science from the California State Polytechnic University of Pomona. While completing volunteer work in hospitals and orthopedic clinics during her undergraduate years, this further pushed Danielle to pursue her dream, and helped her graduate from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. In 2018, Danielle received her LSVT BIGTM certification through the LSVT Global organization. This program has proven to be extremely helpful for those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease at any stage.
Danielle fell in love with manual therapy early in school and drove her to take advanced manual therapy courses. Throughout her journey in school and internships, Danielle found a new passion with neurology, prosthetics and vestibular therapy. With a thirst for knowledge, she continues to pursue advanced education in these areas. Danielle believes that the vestibular System is a vital aspect of physical therapy and should be considered in any patient with balance deficits. Danielle’s philosophy also revolves around the importance of biomechanics and patient education above all else.
In her spare time, Danielle loves to stay active with hiking, practicing yoga and going to the gym. Danielle also loves to travel, try new food and participate in high performance driving schools. Danielle was born and raised in the Bay Area and enjoys helping her community enjoy the quality of life they desire.
