Marianne Neale, PT

My name is Marianne Neale. I obtained my Physical Therapy qualification in South Africa. After working in a busy hospital for two years, I decided to do clinic work and became interested in joint issues, sports injuries, chronic pain, and the post operative care of patients who had undergone orthopaedic surgery. I subsequently relocated to California and took the State Board exams in 2004. I have worked at California Rehab in Irvine since 2005, where I have been able to continue my work in Outpatient Orthopaedics. I am also a Clinical Instructor and serve as a mentor for DPT students from Chapman University. Patients often comment on the good atmosphere at Cal Rehab. I believe this comes from a team approach and staff members who enjoy their work and care about their results.

Brandon Peckham, COTA

My name is Brandon Peckham and as a Southern California native I couldn’t be happier to be serving my community as a COTA for Cal Rehab. After graduating with a degree in Kinesiology from Cal State Domiguez Hills and serving a tour of duty in the US Army, I returned to school to become a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant where I am able to continue my life’s mission of noble service to others.

Kim Rieff, PTA

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.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the gym, playing golf, and reading.
