Angela received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Regis University in 2017. During her clinical rotations she gained experience working with a wide range of patients including those with orthopedic, neurological, pelvic floor, and sports injuries. While at Regis she participated in a global immersion program in Nicaragua where she had the opportunity to work with children with cerebral palsy and initiate a continuing education program with the local physical therapy program in Managua.
While she enjoys working with patients with a variety of musculoskeletal injuries, she is highly interested in the science behind chronic pain, manual therapy, and pelvic floor rehab. Angela’s philosophy is providing patient centered care that is evidence based and individualized. She believes in the power of knowledge and educating her patients on their recovery while providing them with the tools to advocate for their own care.
She is pursuing manual therapy certification through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy and plans to start courses to treat pelvic floor disorders through the American Physical Therapy Association.
Angela was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. She graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. After undergrad, she taught high school Biology and Chemistry for three years before returning to graduate school. She is new to the Pacific Northwest and eager to spend her weekends exploring the city of Portland. She enjoys spending time outdoors running, hiking, and biking. When the weather is cooler, she enjoys cuddling up with a book or her guilty pleasure, binge watching Netflix.
