Grace began working for Therapeutic Associates in April 2021. She graduated with honors from the Physical therapy program at Cebu Doctors’ University in Cebu, Philippines in 2003. Her work experience as a physical therapist involves settings of outpatient orthopedics, home health and skilled nursing. She has practiced in both the Philippines and the United States. A majority of her career has been in the outpatient setting working with patients that have orthopedic and neurologic conditions. She has a love for the pace, variety of conditions and personal connections she gets to make in the outpatient world, and she finds it satisfying to problem solve with patients to help them reach their goals.
She was born and raised in Cebu City, located in the Visayas region or Central Philippines and migrated to the United States in 2008. She worked and lived in Chicago and the surrounding area for 13 years prior to moving to Oregon. Grace loved living in a big city but hated the long cold winters of the Midwest. Upon her first visit to Oregon, she fell in love with the state and its different dynamic landscapes which resulted in a cross country move in 2021. She has experience participating in marathons and triathlon and has recently started training again. Her passions involve travel, swim, hiking, spending time with her dog, baking and decorating cakes.
