Christel specializes in outpatient physical therapy and orthopedics, but also has experience in workplace ergonomics.

Christel earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training from CSU Northridge in 2002.

That’s when she decided to pursue her certification as a Physical Therapist Assistant from Cerritos College.

Christel was born and raised in Southern California and couldn’t imagine leaving. She loves taking weekend trips to the mountains and could never live more than a few hours away from the beach. She’s happiest in the beautiful SoCal weather, where sunglasses and sandals are perfectly acceptable everyday wear! She lives in the Santa Clarita Valley with her two children and her husband, and teacher and a coach. They love having fun in the sun, packing every free weekend full of hiking, camping, and adventures at Disneyland.
