North County Water & Sports Therapy Center January 2020



ORGANIZE YOUR FILES Naming and arranging the files on your computer in such a way that they’re easy for you to find can end up saving you a lot of time. Declutter your workspace by creating one file for pictures, one for Word documents, one for spreadsheets, and one for programs to eliminate the hassle of frantically searching for the files you need. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER Be sure to back up your computer before you start deleting things. This acts as a safety net in case you delete something you didn’t mean to. Additionally, consider installing a second hard drive. The extra space can help with storing important files without having to worry about how much room is left. CLEAN UP SPACE Any files you’ll never use again should be deleted. Likewise, any programs you haven’t used in a while should be uninstalled. Check your hard drive for files that might be taking up unintended space on your computer. And remember to empty the recycling bin — it’s easy to forget just how much goes in there.

Everyone relies on technology. Computers, laptops, tablets, and phones are staples of modern life. However, it’s easy for these devices to become cluttered with old photos, files, and general disorganization. Luckily, January is National Clean Up Your Computer Month and an excellent time to get your technology in order. START BY DUSTING Over time, computer towers can become clogged with dust, which creates additional, unwanted heat within your computer. Regular cleanings will increase the lifespan of your computer and protect its essential components. Compressed air is great for removing most of the dust and other particulates. If the fans or filters are too dirty, you can remove them from the tower to clean them better. If you use water or liquid cleaning products on them, be sure they are completely dry before placing them back into your computer.



We’re thrilled to welcome Adrianne Sotelo to the North County Water and Sports Therapy Center team! As a fresh face greeting our patients at the front desk since early December 2019, Adrianne is already bringing smiles to everyone she meets. She’s quickly embodied the important first step we always try to instill in our patients: a positive attitude. It was a personal experience at home that inspired Adrianne to pursue her interest in the medical field. When her mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer, Adrianne met dozens of wonderful medical professionals that helped her entire family wade through an immensely difficult time. It was their conduct throughout the entire process that inspired Adrianne to explore the medical world more deeply in order to help patients and families during their own times of need. She received her certification as a medical assistant through CalRegional and went on to work with Valley Family Care Medical Group for three years as a medical assistant and receptionist. It’s her variety of experiences and relationships with the medical world that brought Adrianne to our door, and we’re lucky to have her because of the perspective she brings to our practice. She’s been a patient, been the family of a patient, been educated in the field, and has experienced multiple roles in the workforce over the

course of several years. North County is always excited to welcome team members who understand the importance of perspective and experience in what we do. Adrianne is simultaneously working toward a double degree in health science in professional development and advanced patient care. It’s the combined workflow of both medical care and patient interaction that really makes her excited about this field, and she is already so great in her role.

When she’s not working, Adrianne and her husband take their young son out to explore Ramona, where they’ve recently moved. She’s especially thankful for her husband’s adamant passion for hiking the many trails the area has to offer because these hikes give her a chance to spend quality time with her family and explore the place they call home.

Welcome to the team, Adrianne! 2
