Megan Murray, DPT Megan grew up in south Orange County and attended Merrimack College, just outside of Boston. At Merrimack, Megan played DII volleyball where they advanced to the conference championship tournament three times, and the NCAA tournament twice. In 2011, she graduated with her degree in Sports Medicine and concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy. After graduation, Megan moved to Pittsburgh and worked as a physical therapy aide. After one year in Pittsburgh, she decided it was time to return back to California to pursue her goal of becoming a physical therapist. She received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from CSULB in 2015, as part of the inaugural DPT class. During her time in PT school, Megan developed a passion for outpatient physical therapy, and completed four rotations in various outpatient clinics (including here at Alamitos Physical Therapy)! She loves being able to develop a personal relationship with her patients over their course of therapy. As a high school and collegiate volleyball player, she has first-hand experience with athlete rehabilitation, and understands the importance of returning the athlete to their sport as quickly and safely as possible. In her free time, Megan volunteers with The Cat Cove, and fosters kittens until they are adopted. She also loves going to hockey games (Go Penguins!), playing volleyball, riding her bike at the beach and going to Pittsburgh every year to spend time with her family. Loves line dancing with the kittens and hockey players.
Sharon Nemitz, Patient Care Coordinator Our newest employee here at Alamitos P.T. and she's loving it! She has worked in the medical field for 35 years; the last 18 years was in orthopedics until her injuries in 2013 and 2014. She's been married for 34 years and has two adult children and a son-in-law. However, the best part of her life is her two grandsons (9 years and 4 years). She loves all sports and animals, especially our Riley, and she has a dog and two cats at home. She is very involved with her church (sings in the choir!), and she enjoys soccer.
