Sophia graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Kinesiology: Pre Physical Therapy in 2016 and obtained her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from San Diego State University in 2019. Sophia is a freshly minted Physical Therapist with experience in a skilled nursing facility over the past year and in multiple outpatient clinics. Her interest lies in outpatient care and she’s looking forward to being an asset to the SpineZone team, where she hopes to continue her career goal of being an outpatient orthopedic-oriented physical therapist.
During Sophia’s clinical rotations at San Diego State’s DPT program, Sophia took a strong interest in outpatient orthopedics during her rotation at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in La Jolla. There she experienced a multitude of veterans living a life of chronic neck and back pain and pain associated with these conditions. This rotation sparked her interest in the challenging effects of neck and back pain and methods of resolving patient’s chief complaints. She hopes to continue growing in her career by becoming a clinical Instructor and assisting future physical therapist students to love this field as much as she does, as well as volunteering with the veteran community that is at large in San Diego. In the future, Sophia looks forward to obtaining her CSCS and CKTP. Sophia was born and raised in sunny San Diego and enjoys delving in all that San Diego offers in her spare time. Sophia enjoys being with friends and family, playing with her dog, and working out… but she also enjoys as many sweets as possible.
