Kaitlin Walters, Doctor of Physical Therapy

It’s such a pleasure having Kaitlin around the clinic. Kaitlin’s enthusiastic approach makes healing, dare I say, fun?

She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Kaitlin is experienced in a broad array of physical therapy disciplines, making her a perfect fit for the Ojai community. She feels most rewarded seeing her patients return to the activities they couldn’t do before her treatment. Her positive attitude and wonderful laugh bring happiness to everyone around her.

Jeannie Etheridge, Administrative Coordinator

Jeannie is the glue that holds us all together. She’s command central. Anyone with a question is best served by asking Jeannie first. It is amazing how she can manage so many different tasks at once.

Carla Jakab, Health Coach

Carla works hard. Whether it’s teaching classes, helping patients, or putting fresh paint on the walls, we know we can count on her to jump in and get the job done. She’s been a part of Balance from the very beginning. In fact, she was the first person we hired. Her former boss said, “I wish we had ten Carlas.” We couldn’t agree more.


Sabrina Lewis, Health Coach

Sabrina does it all, bringing a wealth of skills to Balance Health. Best of all she also knows when things need done before we even ask. Psychic too? Maybe. She works closely with our physical therapy team during treatment, providing patient support. As a trained vegan chef and raw food expert, Sabrina knows in detail about how the quality of our ingredients affects our bodies. No matter what we need, or what emergency pops up, we know we can count on Sabrina.
