North County Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy is absolutely a unique and boutique therapy clinic. We make sure every experience in the clinic is tailored, specific to what you need and overall makes you feel like you are headed in the right direction. We know how typical physical therapy offices work and how production is a key component to the success of those clinics. A lot of times patients get lost in the shuffle and they need more than mediocre care. It's different here. You get one on one, undivided treatment with the physical therapist. We have high expectations of our patients and vice versa; we are all accountable for the progress and outcomes our patients achieve.

"Human movement is such a great evolution within our environment and when we are not physically functioning at optimal levels the effects are profound. Too often people do not get personalized, comprehensive and well thought out care in the presence of injury or dysfunction. The changes that our bodies make and the response mechanisms that occur after injury can be viewed either as phenomenal or detrimental."

What is your secret talent that no one knows about?
I am an amateur photographer and have been featured in several magazines.
What is your favorite family tradition?
Christmas Eve in Albuquerque. It’s a New Mexico tradition to light lumanarias (sand filled brown paper bags with candles placed inside them). My family cooks the traditional New Mexico Christmas Eve favorites-posole and red chile and pork tamales. After dinner we all pile in the car and ride around looking at lumanarias and Christmas lights.
