Eden Alcomendas

Born and raised in San Diego, Eden grew up playing sports and performing on stage as a dancer. Training for these activities sparked her interest in learning more about how to care for the body.

She earned her degree in Kinesiology from San Francisco State University with a focus on social science. During her senior year, she interned as a youth camp counselor where she loved teaching kids different activities and valuable life skills through sport. She also became a dance teacher, and enjoyed stretching and conditioning her students.

After moving back to San Diego, Eden became more interested in physical therapy, so she started volunteering at Catalyst. She loves the friendly environment and Catalyst’s approach to wellness. Eden now helps organize the monthly Catalyst newsletter and enjoys working with patients as an aide.
