Tina Ayers is the Director of First Impressions for Next Level Physical Therapy and has over 25 years experience in the medical industry. Tina discovered her passion for helping others as a child, volunteering at the nursing home and hospital in her community. As a young adult, she began working in the music industry at a music studio where multiple hit records were recorded during the 1980’s and early 90’s. Tina applied her passion for music and people, and transitioned into publishing, working for music production magazines in a Sales Assistant position. Taking her marketing experience into the world of medical sales, Tina begin working for a Durable Medical Equipment manufacture. This position rekindled Tina’s passion for helping people achieve their best versions of themselves. After starting her family and relocating to Santa Clarita, Tina began working for a physical therapy clinic supporting in the front and back office. She joined the Next Level team three years ago and has enjoyed watching the business grow in leaps and bounds. Her favorite part of working in physical therapy is seeing the progress patients achieve during their recovery journey. When she isn’t greeting you at the front desk, you can find Tina at the lake or beach, cooking, listening to music, laughing, and having fun with her friends and family.
Tina studied marketing at Glendale College and gained hands on experience as a Sales Assistant for Mix Magazine and Electronic Musician, periodicals specializing in music production and sound. Tina marketed for the magazines at major trade shows, like NAMM.
After parting ways with the “heyday” of the music industry, Tina began marketing for Sunrise Medical, a DME manufacturer. Tina returned to the trade show floor, this time marketing medical equipment like walkers, wheelchairs, shower rails, crutches, and patient lifts all over the country. In her position at Sunrise, she headed the Merchandising team, where she travelled California marketing the products to drug stores and pharmacies.
In 2006, Tina began working at a local Physical Therapy clinic as an office manager and occasional aide. She feels that she truly found her passion in the philosophy of physical therapy, and her caring personality thrives.
Tina spent almost a decade working with Santa Clarita’s youth as a campus supervisor for the Saugus Union School District.
