HAPPY FRIDAY!!

Hello Everyone!

Who doesn’t look forward to it, even just a little bit?? :)

We here at SDSR are hoping that all of our patients and friends have had an amazing week! Friday has become pretty exciting in the office, with the addition of “Fun Fridays” in the playrooms at both offices! Thank you so much to the parents and kids that have been participating in Fun Fridays, and helping make it such an extra fun time in the playroom! We love you guys!

Next month brings even more FUN to Fridays! We will be posting next weeks Friday themes on Monday!

January Fun Friday Favorites? How about….

You can find the themes for the month posted in your local playroom, and we will keep you posted here on the SDSR blog, as well!

Meet the Staff: Patient Services

Brittany K. of the Mission Valley Office

Brittany was born in Gillette, Wyoming, but grew up in Laughlin, Nevada. During her Senior year of high school, she started working with her local chiropractor doing filing and odd office jobs. She loved working there so much, that she started training as a Chiropractic Assistant, and eventually became licensed with the State Board of Chiropractic. She worked there for 3 years, and then in 2009 she and her husband decided to move to his hometown of San Diego, California. After arriving, Brittany applied to work at San Diego Spine and Rehab. She has been with SDSR for 3 years now, two of them as Patient Services. While it was hard leaving home, Brittany feels it was one of her best decisions, because now she get’s to live in America’s Finest City, and work for San Diego’s best integrated medical office! In her spare time, Brittany loves reading and shopping. Last year, she made a huge personal accomplishment and finished reading the complete “Patriots Guide to American History.”

What Brittany loves most about SDSR?

“One of the many things I love most about working at SDSR is how I get to help patients get started on their path to wellness in the office, and getting to see how they progress through their care and into Maintenance!”

Sondra H. of the Oceanside Office

Sondra was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and moved to sunny San Diego, California just before her 4th birthday. She is the daughter of two Navy parents. Sondra has had several jobs since she first started working at the age of fifteen; From babysitting, being your friendly Starbucks Barista, or dolling up clients as a Make-up Artist, she has done a lot! After graduating high school, she became a double major in Small Business Management and Marketing, in the hopes of someday starting her own business. No matter what, she knew that she wanted to be in a field that not only made people feel good, but genuinely helped them. No matter where she was working, she spent any “time off” working as a Personal Shopper and helping clients look and feel their best on a daily basis. In 2011, she came across a golden opportunity to work at SDSR, and has been loving it ever since! She started at the Front Desk, and eventually moved into the Patient Services office, where she has the pleasure of meeting each new patient and helping guide them through their treatment plan with ease!  In her free time, Sondra has varied interests and endeavors. From working on her Weight-Loss/Motivational blog, spending lunchtime at the gym, and trying to see all of the amazing nature California has to offer, she can’t stick to just one hobby!

What Sondra loves most about SDSR?

“I love that I have the opportunity to help people on the path to achieving their health and wellness goals. While patients look to us to help them start new challenges, or get back to their former favorite pastimes, I find inspiration in their hard work and dedication EVERY day!”

Again, as the holidays approach, we want to make sure that you know that it is essential to keep your appointments, so that your progress doesn’t suffer over the holiday season. If you will be out of town at any point, please be sure to let the Front Desk know, so that we can make the appropriate notes on your file, and anxiously await your return!

That’s all for now, but don’t forget: Get your tickets, come to Open House, check out New Patient Orientation, and have a Happy Holidays!

Congratulations to Leigh in Mission Valley on her beautiful new baby boy, Jacob!!!

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT!

Thanks for Giving!

Happy Wednesday!

We wanted to send a special ‘Thank you’ to all of the patients who referred friends and family to SDSR, as well as to those who donated items for our Angels Depot food drive this Thanksgiving season! It was a great success, and we could not have done it without you!

Check out the winners!!!

Thanks to Brittany at the Mission Valley office!

 

Thanks to Pat at the Oceanside office!

 

Again, thank you so much to everyone…from patients to staff, we collected so many items!

We wanted to introduce some more of the SDSR Family to our wonderful patients!

Meet the Staff: Physical Therapt Department

Jade -Oceanside Physical Therapist

Jade is orginally from Rancho Cucamonga, CA. She has been in the San Diego area for the last ten years, and graduated with her Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology from Cal State San Marcos. From there, Jade received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from St. Augustin for Health Sciences, also located in San Marcos, CA. Jade is truly fascinated by the way the body works, and after several sports injuries and 4 knee surgeries, she knew she wanted to work in Physical Therapy. She has taken all of the required courses to get her Manual Therapy Certification, and plans to take that exam in the near future. In her free time, Jade enjoys volleyball, golf, spending time with friends, and going to the beach. She is brand new to the SDSR family, but she tells us she is enjoying it so far! :)

What Jade Loves Most About SDSR:

I love SDSR for it’s amazing staff, and the wonderfully comprehensive approach to healing people!

We even managed to get our hands on one of the photos Jade just took to be hung up in the lobby! :)

Julie-Mission Valley Physical Therapist

Julie grew up in a small town called Ridgecrest, where her father worked as a mathematician for the China Lake Naval Base. She spent a lot of her extra time on things like skiing, tennis, basketball, biking, and other sports! In high school, going up for a lay-up in a basketball game, her patella was dislocated.Julie was sure she was ruined, until she was introduced to Physical Therapy! There, a PT was born! Julie went to Fresno State University, and received her BS in Exercise Physiology, while minoring in Gerontology and Spanish! She became a Shiatsu Therapist to improve her hands-on skills, and had her own business throughout all of her schooling. She tarted out working in a county hospital doing rotations in various units, while finishing her Masters Degree. After living in the deserts of California, Julie decided San Diego sunshine was just what she needed, and moved here 13 years ago. She has worked in several settings over the years, with post-stroke, prosthetics, sports, TMJ, and neurlogical patients, and she loves a challenge! She loves her family, especially her daughter, Ava, traveling, reading, the outdoors, learning languages, and anything creative. She has even been managing and producing a show over the last five years! The quote she lives by? “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” -Mahatma Ghandi

What Julie Loves Most About SDSR:

I love SDSR, because it is filled with people with a common passion; loving people, solving challenging problems, multi-tasking, and the desire to make a difference in patients lives! I also love the daily smiles, teamwork, and caring way the staff makes patients feel right at home.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for info later this week about the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways going on at both offices for the month of December! So many great prizes, and so many fun ways to get tickets to win them!

See you at your next appointment!!
