Sara Peterson, PT, DPT
Sara graduated from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology in May of 2014. She then attended physical therapy school at California State University Sacramento and graduated with a doctorate in October 2017.
Her passion for physical therapy began during a career day at her high school when she got the opportunity to observe a physical therapist assistant. She was amazed at how knowledgeable the therapist was and that seemingly simple movements could be both challenging and produce great improvements in patient’s lives.
Sara grew up in a small country town in Northern California where she gained an appreciation for interpersonal relationships and how each individual uniquely contributes to the community. It is with these values that she approaches her patient care.
In her free time, Sara enjoys dancing, drawing, running, playing with her dog and attending plays.
The areas of physical therapy Sara is fond of are manual therapy and geriatrics because of the level of care and expertise that are required.
