physical therapist portola KalaytaFrom a young age, Alexandra had a desire to be in the medical field where she could actively help people to return to the lives they desired. Her first experience with physical therapy was with a local therapeutic horseback riding program - Hippotherapy, a treatment to improve coordination and balance, and increase a patient’s strength. Alexandra was amazed that her love of horses could be combined with medicine. This insight and subsequent experiences as she helped to start a therapeutic riding program in the town where she lived, ultimately determined her choice of physical therapy school instead of the pre-med track.

Upon finishing her clinical rotations, Alexandra found a particular affinity for sports physical therapy - a great match for her personality and interests. Alexandra has a very intuitive sense of what is going on with the patient. Her ability to pinpoint a diagnosis and create a personalized treatment plan goes beyond the routine “textbook” therapy plan. For Alexandra, the ability to really get in touch with a patient's needs and determine what works best for them is key.

After nine years as a physical therapist, six of those years focused on sports physical therapy, Alexandra combines this expertise with extensive knowledge and practical experience in tennis and equestrian performance training. Alexandra always goes out of her way to assist patients in their recovery. To her, it is the incredible people, the stories shared, the bonds formed, and ultimately the satisfaction that occurs when a patient achieves all or more than they had expected.

Alexandra loves art in all it’s forms - painting, couture dress, architecture and sculpture. Personally, the only art she admits to mastering herself, is the art of healing. Beyond that, she leaves creating beauty to others she admires. On the active side of things, just about everything is fair game - tennis, hiking, skiing, boating and biking. Let’s remember wine tasting, vacations and weekend getaways as well. All part of her time-off fun.

At the top of Alexandra’s list of life-dreams is her desire to become a Sports Certified Specialist (SCS). With this, she can fulfill her passion to work with athletes in the Bay Area and at events and tournaments. Having the ability to provide non-professional and collegiate athletes with the type of immediate care that is so imperative for optimal recovery would mean the world to her. Alexandra understands how vital rehab services are not only for injury prevention, but for performance enhancement and long, rewarding careers in sport.
