Arlene received her doctorate degree in physical therapy from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA in 2001. She has received her orthopedic rehab training from a range of sources including the Kaiser Orthopedic Mentorship Program and the Institute of Physical Arts.
An early realization for me as a practitioner is that a client is greater than their hurting parts. Physical therapy as an art requires one to be open minded and quickly adaptable. As a lifelong learner, I am dedicated to gaining insights to what makes our bodies tick, what trips the body up and what can bring the body to better healing and expansive function.
Beyond physical therapy, I enjoy reading and exploring local bookstores. My (inadvertent) sport of choice is running after my sweet and buzzing 4-year-old. I like to exercise my sweet-tooth sensibilities in the kitchen and strive to stretch my wanderlust on an airplane.
