Jessica Endo, PT, DPT
UC San Diego- Physiology & Neuroscience B.S., Minor in Psychology
UC San Francisco/SF State University- DPT
Born and raised in the East Bay, Jessica showed interest in a variety of sports and activities such as jazz and tap dance, tennis, basketball, and piano. She went on to study Physiology & Neuroscience at UC San Diego, while also traveling with the Club Tennis Team, and eventually decided to learn and play for the school’s taiko (Japanese drumming) group. During her time there, Jessica was one of a few individuals who had the opportunity to study exercise science and performance research at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, Australia. This experience inspired her to pursue physical therapy as a career as a way to learn more about human performance and how to improve it for everyone.
Following completion of her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at UCSF/SFSU, she worked in private practice orthopedics with a focus on evidence-based and patient-centered care for a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. She decided to pursue the LGOST Sports Residency program to improve her clinical practice and learn how to recognize and rehab injuries specific to athletes throughout the lifespan.
In her spare time, she loves Zumba, hiking, running, baking (Snickerdoodles are her weakness!), and spending time with family and friends.
Fun fact: her family has a big family reunion every other year in Reno that can have as many as 300 people!
