Oriana is a Bay Area native from San Jose, CA. After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at San Jose State University, she earned her doctoral degree in physical therapy from Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, CA. She is a current resident in the Agile Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency program.
Oriana’s passion for physical therapy stems from her participation in dance and performing arts. What continually motivates Oriana in physical therapy is a desire to restore, optimize, and improve movement to allow people to confidently and joyfully participate in movement activities that are meaningful to them. She believes that movement allows people to live the lives they want to lead, and this drives her treatment philosophy to provide individualized care to people of all ages.
Outside of the clinic, Oriana’s hobbies include dancing, powerlifting, camping, hiking, kayaking, traveling, running, baking, and attending live music and performance events.
