Jeannie graduated from California State University Fullerton with a B.S in Kinesiology and earned her Physical Therapist Assistant Degree from Stanbridge University.
After undergrad, Jeannie spent time exploring the various fields in health care and became a PT aide in orthopedic and sports at St. Jude Centers for Rehabilitation and Wellness. She also used that time to volunteer at the Cognitive Rehab Center and Medical Fitness Department at St. Jude CRW. She completed her clinical rotations in outpatient orthopedics, SNF, and outpatient/inpatient neurological rehab. Following PTA school, Jeannie worked in an outpatient wellness center along with chiropractors, acupuncturists, LMTs, and other outpatient orthopedic clinicians with post-op, neurological, sports-related injuries, and acute/chronic pain diagnoses. Additionally, Jeannie worked at St. Jude CRW as a special population instructor encouraging clients of a diverse population (Parkinson’s- Let’s Be Big, bone builders, arthritis, pool therapy) on the importance of healthy living and exercise. In her free time, Jeannie loves to play with her baby pug Larry, stay active with exercise, garden in her new home, explore various National Park camping sites, and enjoy river adventures with her friends.
