Angela graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a BS in Biology in 1996 and then earned a Masters in Physical Therapy (MPT) from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 1999. Her interest in wound care began while caring for patients with vascular and pressure wounds at a skilled nursing facility. This interest soon turned into her passion and led her to become a Certified Wound Specialist (CWS).
Currently, she is the lead in-patient wound care physical therapist at Keck Hospital at USC. She treats a wide range of patients with complex surgical, vasculitic, pressure, diabetic, and/or atypical wounds. Although she specializes in wound care, she also works with patients with a decline in functional mobility. As an APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) certified clinical instructor, she shares her passion with USC Doctor of Physical Therapy Program students as well as her patients and colleagues. She regularly lectures the Versant Nursing Residency program on dressing selection and edema management/prevention.
When she’s not caring for her patients, she’s caring for her twins Natalie and Allison.
