Harriet Russell, PT, DPT

 Harriet was born in Oxford, England and moved to California at the age of 6.  As a collegiate rower and competitive high school cheer leader, she experienced the benefits of physical therapy first hand, which in turn inspired her career path.  Harriet earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Science with a concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy from Loyola Marymount University in 2013, followed by her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 2016.   During her time at Columbia Harriet conducted research on the reliability and validity of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and was a presenter at the 2016 Combined Sections meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association.   She enjoys being outdoors, particularly exploring the beaches around Santa Cruz and the wineries of Napa.  Harriet is a staff physical therapist at our Central San Jose and Los Gatos locations.
