Dr. Cunkle is a native Floridian who moved to California in May 2018. She graduated from The University of Florida in Gainesville, FL with a degree in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology and earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL.
Renee was drawn to the profession due to the strong patient-clinician relationship that is built through the treatment process and movement being the focus of the treatment. She carefully listens to identify the needs of each patient and focuses treatment on function to help them return to their most important activities, such as getting on and off the floor to play with their grandchildren. Her treatment interests include balance/gait training and treating women and men with pelvic health conditions, such as incontinence and pelvic pain. Renee believes physical therapy is unique to other health care professions as it is a team approach; she educates her patients so that they can take ownership of their healthcare and work with her to achieve the desired outcome.
In Renee’s spare time, she enjoys practicing yoga, hiking/spending time outdoors, and playing with her Great Pyrenees Mix puppy, Monty.
