Cindy graduated from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Biology, and then received her Master degree in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in Illinois. She knew she wanted to enter the PT profession when she was volunteering in a hospital and watched a PT teach a patient how to walk again after suffering extensive injuries. Cindy has had over 20 years experience as a physical therapist. Her primary interest has been in orthopedics. In her free time, she enjoys practicing yoga, hiking in our local mountains and attending sporting events (especially her kids’ games).
By way of a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute, a career in lighting and a series of injuries along the way, “Jackson,” a native Angelino, took a scenic route to his physical therapy practice. With the help of an ACL reconstruction and a desire to be of service to others, he ultimately found his way to California State University Northridge where he completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. While he’s not enjoying time in the clinic, you might run into him on local trails or find him vigorously napping with any combination of his 3 dogs.

Austin graduated from Grand Canyon University with his Bachelor’s in Biology and later received his doctorate in Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. Austin grew up constantly playing outside and involved in numerous sports, baseball being his passion. Austin was led down the path of physical therapy after tearing his labrum and receiving a diagnosis of tendinitis of the elbow and shoulder. These injuries led him to becoming passionate about physical therapy and helping others. While he is not in the clinic, Austin enjoys working out, going to the beach, working on cars, camping, and going to numerous professional sports games.

Noemy started off as a dancer and dance instructor. She holds a BFA in Dance with a specialization in Choreography from the University of California, Irvine, graduating cum laude. It was at UC Irvine that she discovered the benefits of Pilates. She noticed that her chronic back pain would disappear with the regular practice of Pilates. She completed her Pilates teacher training with Ellie Herman—designer of the Pilates springboard and author of Pilates for Dummies and other published Pilates works. Noemy has taught Pilates since 2014 and has used her knowledge from Ellie Herman to bring Pilates to Calpulli Mexican Dance Company (NYC). She has taken the prerequisites to become a Physical Therapist, and uses her knowledge of anatomy and physiology to inform her as a Pilates teacher.
