Rebeca De La Cruz
Physical Therapy Aide
I have lived in Southern California my entire life. I grew up in the city of Pomona, where I lived with my mother and three other relatives. After graduating Claremont High School, I went to Mt San Antonio College and transferred to Cal Poly Pomona. After receiving my Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology, I volunteered at two physical therapy clinics before I began working here at Empower Physical Therapy and Wellness.
Three core values that drive me through life are to be kind to everyone I meet, continually grow in my personal and professional life, and be respectful to everyone around me including the environment.
I want to help patients regain their independence to get back to enjoying their hobbies and have the ability to create new memories with their family and friends.
I help guide the patients through exercises, ensure a safe and clean clinic space, and provide support to the other aides and therapists.
From my time working at Empower Physical Therapy and Wellness, I like the work culture and environment the staff has encouraged. There is a friendly and supportive atmosphere, which promotes the comfortability to ask questions to encourage learning. I really appreciate the willingness of all the therapists to teach the physical therapy aides about physical therapy concepts.

When I am not working, I am walking my dog twice a day everyday, taking care of my plants, and learning facts about the environment. On colder days, I like to bake from scratch and share the treats with my neighbors. My next baking goal is cinnamon rolls. The days I enjoy the best are spending time with my cousins and friends.
