Bhavana grew up in Beaverton, Oregon. She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of Puget Sound in 2006 following a B.S. in Exercise and Sport Science from Oregon State University. Before joining Therapeutic Associates in May 2017, Bhavana worked for the last ten years at Kaiser Permanente.
She enjoys working with patients of all ages and abilities and has special interest in sports performance, post-operative rehabilitation and fall prevention.
