As a small town girl from Bishop, CA, Randi enjoys anything outdoors! From the mountains to the ocean you can find her hiking, snowboarding, playing softball, golf and spending long days at the beach with family and friends. Her enthusiasm and optimism for her patients and for physical therapy comes from her own experiences as a patient and the lifelong relationships she has formed with the physical therapists that have helped her recover from sports injuries and surgeries of her own. Dr. Kinney truly feels that “It is a gift to get to spend her day helping others get back to what they love to do so they can enjoy their lives”.
