She found herself in Virginia after high-school where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Therapeutic Recreation at Virginia Wesleyan College in 2013. From there, she was offered a job in Bremerton, WA working in skilled nursing. It was 4 years later that she found a love for physical therapy and wanted to provide those she served with a chance of gaining strength and function back into their lives. Stella then pursued her Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Olympic College and graduated in 2020. She has always been passionate about health and wellness, so therapy was a natural fit for her. She has a new love for outpatient orthopedics and neuro-rehab. Working as an outpatient therapist makes her feel as though she has finally found her purpose.
