Lead Physical Therapy Aide
Mia was born and raised on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, where she grew up playing soccer and doing gymnastics. In high school, she committed to gymnastics full-time and helped lead her team to annual competitions in Las Vegas. After multiple injuries throughout her gymnastics career, she developed a curiosity for the human body. This curiosity along with her desire to help others fueled her passion for physical therapy.
Since 2018, Mia has been pursuing a major in Applied Human Physiology with a minor in Psychology at Chapman University. Upon graduating in 2022, she hopes to attend Physical Therapy school. Along with being a full-time student, Mia has worked as a child tutor and gymnastics coach in her community. Teaching children and watching them grow has been especially rewarding for her.
Mia looks forward to gaining experience in the field and is excited to be a part of the Core Performance Physical Therapy team. She loves being able to build relationships with patients and help them get back to living pain-free.
In her free time, Mia enjoys rock climbing, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
