Daniel LaraPT, DPT

dan@centralvalleypt.com

Dan was raised in Manteca, California. He completed both his Bachelor of Arts in Sports Medicine and Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.

He enjoys a career where he can impart his own passion for movement to other populations from younger, active crowds looking to return to sport to senior groups seeking improved strength and balance to help with their everyday life challenges. He finds great joy in turning almost all exercises and activities into a challenge for improved participation and outcomes. Dan is an active American Physical Therapy Association Credentialed Clinical Instructor and enjoys overseeing students during their internship periods in hopes of giving back to the profession and advancing younger therapists on their reasoning and hands on skills. He thrives on the energy they bring back to the clinic and appreciates the new ideas in care they impart on his patients.

On a personal note, Dan now lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children. He is competitive by nature and enjoys all sports, although baseball, golf, bowling, and snowboarding are among his favorites. His other interests include distance running, wine tasting, cooking, and reading.

Molly KrogenPTA

mkrogen@centralvalleypt.com

Molly grew up in Gilroy, CA (Garlic Capitol of the World!). This is where she met two of her biggest fitness inspirations! Ed, the owner of a local fitness center and Linda, the group fitness instructor at the local community college both inspired Molly with their educational approach to fitness. They didn’t just show you how to do a certain workout. They showed you how to safely move during the workout and explained why and how the workout made a difference. They were both great role models for fitness, safety and education!

Molly’s interest in physical therapy was peaked following a running injury she incurred 9 years ago. She appreciated the collaborative approach to her recovery between her therapist and herself. When she was presented with an opportunity to go back to school several years ago she jumped in with both feet!

Molly graduated with her A.S. degree to become a physical therapist assistant from Sacramento City College in May 2018. 

In her spare time Molly enjoys running, hiking, biking and spending time with her family, friends and pets! (dog: Levi and cats: Flea and Zoe Belle) Oh, she also enjoys dressing in cosplay at comic book conventions. ;)

Education
Sacramento City College, Sacramento, CA
Associate in Science: Physical Therapist Assistant, May 2018
