Shaun earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University and his Bachelor of Arts in music education and performance from California State University – Dominguez Hills. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, Shaun was a professional musician in Los Angeles. Shaun was first introduced to physical therapy while recovering from a hand injury. The process of healing from a difficult injury led him to pursue physical therapy as a career in order to help others regain function and return to activities that are important to them.
During his training, Shaun worked with patients of many backgrounds, including high level athletes, musicians, children, and older adults. He was also able to learn from Certified Hand Therapists, and he is now pursuing becoming a Certified Hand Therapist himself. Having been an educator for over a decade, Shaun centers his treatment around ensuring that his patients understand their injuries which he believes is essential to recovery.
Shaun was born and raised in Los Angeles and still enjoys going to the beach in the summer. In his free time, Shaun loves hiking, bicycling, weight lifting, skiing, performing and composing music, wine tasting, traveling, and discovering new foods with his wife.
