Stephanie received her Doctor of Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California (USC) and completed an orthopedic residency at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara. She currently holds two board certifications as a clinical specialist in orthopedics and in sports. Stephanie is passionate about helping youth athletes mitigate and rehabilitate injuries through education, strength training, and biomechanical corrections. As a collegiate basketball player at UCSD, she sustained a knee injury requiring surgery and rehabilitation. She uses this experience as fuel to help others and display empathy as people go through challenging times with their injuries. She hopes to empower the youth to understand their physical health and to understand how they can return to their prior level of activity.
