Irene began working with Therapeutic Associates in November 2020. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Whittier College, in Southern California. She went on to receive her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Touro University Nevada. She enjoys working with people of all ages but is most passionate about working with the pediatric population. Her passion for working with children began with her first job in high school as a swim instructor/lifeguard. She hopes to continue working with pediatric patients throughout her career.
Irene was born in Japan and moved to the United States when she was three years old. Since then, she has lived in five different states (California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and Oregon) and has decided to settle down here in Oregon. Outside of the clinic she enjoys baking, going to the gym, swimming, and hiking. One day, Irene hopes to eat her way around the world while traveling and experiencing many different types of cultures.
