Rylan was born and raised in Orange County, California. At a young age he was introduced to a wide variety of sports, but quickly fell in love with skateboarding and snowboarding. Eventually, all the years of snowboarding led him to a shoulder injury in high school which required physical therapy. This is where he first discovered the complexity of the human body and where an interest in the healthcare field was sparked.
However, after graduating high school he attended Santiago Canyon College to pursue a career in Business Marketing. Shortly after attending, he noticed his interest in business marketing wasn’t passionate and decided to shift his career focus towards something he would love to do long-term. Rylan then applied to Cal State University, Fullerton and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology in 2017. Throughout his undergrad, he volunteered at a local athletic training facility 1Vision Sports in Brea, California.
Currently, he is in the process of obtaining his Certified Strength and Conditioning (CSCS) certificate, finishing up prerequisite classes before applying to graduate school, and personal training here at Core Performance Physical Therapy.
Outside of work, you can catch him in the mountains or at the beach. Rylan enjoys camping, hiking, exploring national parks, and anything involving the outdoors!
