Amanda comes to Movement Rx after becoming a fan of our approach several years ago. She is an Arizona native who recently moved to beautiful San Diego with her husband and two young children. Her love for physical therapy started in high school after physical therapy helped her overcome multiple soccer injuries. A killer athlete, Amanda went on to play Division I soccer at Northern Arizona University, where she later graduated with her doctorate in physical therapy in 2007. She has since become certified in the following: ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization), CKTP (Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner), CSCS (Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach), FMS (Functional Movement Screen), SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment).
When not at work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her family and participating in CrossFit. She has used CrossFit as her exercise of choice since 2009 and has qualified for the CrossFit Regionals 5 separate times.
For Amanda, the most rewarding part of her job is being able to help people return to their full optimal function, physically and mentally. Not just baseline, but optimal. She does this by customizing each session to your needs at that point in your recovery or performance plan. She loves getting to know her patients and becomes deeply invested in their progress goals.
Amanda is dedicated to helping patients of Movement Rx reach their full potential, by eliminating pain and moving better!
