Project Description

Injury Specialist

Shanell became interested in physical therapy after sustaining several injuries while pursuing a professional career in figure skating.  After going through many physical therapy treatments herself, she was able to witness firsthand the benefits and positive results that the field had to offer.  After feeling the joy and satisfaction of getting back to her original form, it ignited her passion in striving to help people return to their prior activities and function level.


She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science from California State University, Fullerton. She later became a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant through Cerritos College. 

Shanell is a Certified Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) L1 & L2 Expert Practitioner, also certified in Kinesiology Taping advanced concepts,  and is a certified Clinical Instructor.

When Shanell isn’t working on patients she can be found at the ice rink working with youth hockey players as a power skating coach.
