I am Saundra Efron, 1/2 Hawaiian, 1/4 French, 1/4 English, and according to 23 and Me, I have a bit O’Irish. I am an Idahoan, having moved to this enchanted state years ago, and am thrilled to call it home. Although I have several passions, I love laughter, cooking, advocating for animals and traveling, but my O’hana (family) takes center stage. I appreciate a good sense of humor, as well as a Grande Burrito or Elk Burger, with lettuce of course. I have come to understand the importance of health as well. Keeping our bodies moving is important, even if it is to the kitchen for a bag of popcorn at commercial time. It will be my absolute pleasure to greet you, get to know you, and care for you. I am happy to be part of the ActiveNW Physical Therapy O’hana.     Mahalo, Saundra
