Lesa is a San Francisco native who attended high school at Mercy SF then graduated with her B.S. in Kinesiology at San Francisco State University. She worked at a dental office for 6 years when a patient gave her the opportunity to volunteer at a Physical Therapy clinic. That is when she fell in love with the profession and the opportunity to meet patients with a plethora of conditions. She then attended University of the Pacific where she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and learned to tolerate the intense Stockton heat.
Lesa was given the opportunity to intern at Kabat & Associates and knew this was the perfect atmosphere to learn, grow and thrive. After internship, and the requests from many of her patients and the fellow clinicians, Lesa was asked to continue with Kabat & Associates She is an empathetic and passionate person who truly values therapist- patient relationships and trust. Outside the clinic, Lesa enjoys hiking, reading novels, spending time with loved ones, and learning new recipes (suggestions and tips greatly appreciated!)
