Dr. Samantha Ruby graduated from Lycoming College in Pennsylvania in 2010 with her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and minor in Biology. She discovered her passion for injury rehabilitation through her athletic background in basketball at the high school and collegiate levels, as she utilized her personal drive and compassion to return to the court following numerous knee injuries.
After gaining experience as a physical therapy aide, she went on to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University in 2013. Since graduating, she has expanded her skill set through years of experience in both acute care at a Level 1 trauma center and outpatient physical therapy. She was part of a pilot team that introduced physical therapy services into the emergency department setting and learned to combine her experience in both settings to allow for improved access to care. She is also a 200+ hour certified yoga instructor and enjoys drawing from her yoga background to help patients get back to their daily activities with an individualized and holistic approach.
In her free time, Dr. Ruby enjoys hiking LA trails, biking by the beach, and spending time with her goldendoodle puppy. She is very excited to join the team at BASE Training and Physical Therapy and is looking forward to sharing her expertise with the surrounding community.
