Koree developed her passion and drive for physical therapy after experiencing multiple knee injuries that left her on crutches three of her four years of high school. Her physical therapists made a life-long impression on her throughout the rehabilitation process. Most notably, her therapists instilled in her the ability to smile and laugh through adversity. Koree received her undergraduate degree in Applied Health for Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. In 2015, Koree completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California. During graduate school, Koree was challenged yet again after undergoing a brain surgery that dramatically affected her ability to walk, talk, and perform everyday activities. She would learn and grow tremendously on the road to making a full recovery. Koree believes in a treatment style that focuses on the whole individual. She believes in order for a patient to heal, they must be treated physically, mentally, and emotionally. She was taught by her physical therapists and incorporates those skills into her own teaching methods and treatment style. CALL TODAY: 209.524.7488
