Getting to Know SMOC
Name: Riza Grace Zimmerman
Hire Date: 12/18/2017
Title: Physical Therapist
What is your favorite hobby?
I enjoy going to OTF since they make running, rowing and doing HIIT like burpees fun even though it feels like torture during our class. I like that I can push myself every time even those days that I don’t feel motivated or was only hoping for a recovery workout. It’s definitely something I enjoy doing since I am not into sports.
What do you like most about working at SMOC?
I like working at SMOC because I get variety of musculoskeletal conditions both non surgical and post operative which gives me opportunities to learn and improve my skills as a competitive Physical Therapist. I can also directly communicate and establish patient care with guidance from our Orthopedic Specialists. The company supports our continuing education which for me is critical as it enables me as a health care provider to deliver evidence based patient care.
What is something you want your peers to know about you?
I got married in November after two wedding postponements (third time is the charm). We don’t have any kids yet but we have two adorable dogs, Faith and Hope. My husband and I enjoy drinking wine and trying out different restaurants that Guy Fieri went to on his show in FoodNetwork.
