Rachel FoustPT, DPT
Rachel was born and raised in Southern California and grew up playing a lot of sports. She fell in love with soccer and that’s what she ended up playing throughout high school. Somehow, she made it through without any major injuries, but was introduced to PT through plenty of teammates’ stories. She always knew that she wanted an active career and thought PT sounded like the right fit. Rachel went up north to attend UC Davis for undergrad where she spent 3 years working as a student athletic trainer alongside Division 1 athletes. This helped solidify her career choice and she knew it was meant to be. She returned home to attend CSULB for PT school. At Long Beach, Rachel grew more fascinated with orthopedics/sports PT and knew that was what she primarily wanted to do. Rachel loves PT because she gets to specialize her treatment for each individual and help them get back to doing whatever they’re passionate about.
