My name is Kim Rieff and I have been licensed as a Physical Therapist Assistant since 2004. I received my BA in Criminal Justice from Chapman University in 1992 and played three years for Chapman’s Women’s Basketball team. While I was working in the criminal justice field in the early ‘90’s, I herniated my L4-5 disc and had to go to physical therapy in an out-patient orthopedic setting. It was at that time that I felt physical therapy would be a great field for me to be in, especially since I sustained numerous injuries in the years I played sports. I felt my experience as a patient would enhance not only my skills, but also empathy towards the patients I would see. I started out as a physical therapy aide in 1995 in our Irvine clinic. I got accepted into Cerritos College’s Physical Therapy Assistant program in 2002. After graduating with Highest Honors in 2004, I was licensed by the state of California as a PTA. One of my favorite aspects of being a clinician is getting to know the patients that I see and working with our physical therapists to come up with the best treatment plan for our patients.
