Ellie Nevarez

I was born and raised in Poway, CA , but I grew up on the soccer field. I was first introduced to the field of physical therapy after going through my own rehab for multiple knee injuries. It was through this process that I first met and worked with Brian and Kristen!

I decided to step out of the California bubble when I got accepted into the PT program at Creighton University. While completing my DPT, I had the opportunity to complete several amazing rotations including one at Penn State Sports Med, Madonna Neurological Rehabilitation, the Center for the Intrepid and the ILAC clinic in the Dominican Republic. After I completed my DPT, I decided I wasn’t done learning and decided to stay on at Creighton for a year long orthopedic residency. My residency allowed me not only to treat the underserved populations of Omaha, but also gave me the opportunity to teach at Creighton’s PT program and perform research.

The more opportunities I have to interact with patients, the more they teach me and mold my practice of physical therapy. After being able to treat at the campos and clinics in the Dominican Republic, it is easy to see that there is more to health and wellness than western medicine can provide. Being able to treat the whole person, and meeting them where they are in their own healing process is what I work towards with each of my patients. My career goal is to be able to help my patients live a healthier, well-rounded life style!

Catalyst creates an environment for healing that attracts a variety of healthcare practitioners, all working together to provide the best care for each of our patients. I’m excited to be a part of the team, and a part of my patients’ healing process!

When I’m outside of the clinic I prefer to be outdoors hiking, going to the beach, playing soccer or running. The only thing better than a good workout, is a good meal!
