Michelle earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree through the University of California, San Francisco. Growing up in the South Bay, she played lacrosse, field hockey, softball and track and field throughout high school, where her own experience with injuries lead her to find her passion through the physical therapy career. With physical therapy in pursuit, she continued on to play collegiate lacrosse while earning her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Adaptive Physical Activity at CSU Chico.
Keeping the patient perspective in mind, Michelle values patient-centered care and goal-oriented approaches. She understands the emotional aspect of recovery and values teaming up with her patients to provide an evidence-based treatment approach that best optimizes their rehabilitation. Her drive to provide the best patient care possible led her to take additional courses in running biomechanics and manual therapy. She is dedicated to staying current in research and interventions through additional continuing education courses. She has completed her running coach certification through RRCA to improve and optimize the performance of runners through Peak Physical Therapy’s Running Analysis program.
Outside of the clinic, Michelle enjoys traveling, hiking, running, yoga, scuba diving and spending weekends up at Clear Lake wake surfing and paddle boarding with her friends, family and water-loving Labrador.
