Vanessa Medina, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist | Assistant Facility Manager

Vanessa was born and raised in Pleasanton, CA and participated in multiple sports as a young athlete. She played competitive soccer for Pleasanton Rage Soccer Club, and played basketball and track/field for her alma mater, Amador Valley High School. Her interest in physical therapy sparked as a patient for multiple ankle sprains, however her passion grew as she observed close family members rehabilitate from ACL reconstruction. She saw the value of how physical therapists were able to aide with function in getting patients back to the activities that they love, whether that be getting athletes back to the playing field or gardening in the backyard. 

 

Vanessa received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from Chico State in May 2015 and proceeded to obtain her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of the Pacific in 2018. She has a strong interest in treating the knees, ankles, and patients that suffer from dizziness/vertigo. 

 

Vanessa is a Bay Area sports fan from 49er football to SF Giants baseball and Sharks hockey to Warriors basketball. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, going wine tasting in her hometown of Livermore, and staying active by working out.
