Hyacille Kay Rivera Mayordomo (she goes by Kay) graduated from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2017 with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. She grew up in San Jose, CA and attended undergraduate at the University of the Pacific in 2011 with a B.A. in Sports Medicine and minors in Biology and Psychology. She worked as a physical therapy aide for a couple of years before attending physical therapy school. Kay is currently in Agile Physical Therapy’s Orthopaedic Residency (2018-2019) and is excited to continue to improve her skills and knowledge to help her patients.
Kay’s goal is to collaborate with patients to help them get back to what they love to do and do so independently. Kay believes that if you want something enough, that you should keep working towards that goal and strive to do better. She also wants to instill in her patients the confidence to feel in control of their body, move, and challenge themselves in whatever activities they love to do.
In her spare time, Kay enjoys hiking, running, rock climbing, yoga, working out, napping in hammocks, and just trying new things. She is a great lover of the outdoors (especially forests, mountains, and beaches), traveling to new places, and experiencing different cultures/new food.
