Maria D., PT, DPT

Meet Ms. Maria: our wonderful Education Manager who joined the team when Carrico first opened! Ms. Maria earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology from UCLA and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. As a member of the Carrico team, she highly values seeing her patients progress and reach their goals! 

Ms. Maria is a busy bee in and out of the clinic, as she is involved in various community organizations; she has been one of the Clinical Directors for Special Olympics Southern California’s FUNfitness program since 2012 and is also a member of SoCal Trykers. Ms. Maria has also presented lectures on PT topics to APU, San Bernardino’s CCS therapists, and Jessup University.

Outside the clinic, this Beauty and the Beast fan enjoys eating all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ and spending time with her family, friends, and dog. Her hobbies include playing the piano, ukulele, basketball, hiking, and camping. Her favorite junk food is a chewy chocolate chip cookie.
