Hi! I'm Leada Malek!


AthletaWell Community!


My name is Dr. Leada Malek and I'll be your Physical Therapy Guide!


I wanted to drop a personal hello into this thread for an easy place to submit questions or get to know me if you haven't checked out the Meet Your Guide page. 🙂


A bit about me:

  • I'm born and raised in the Bay Area, CA!
  • I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy with an advanced board-specialty in sports PT, and an NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist.
  • Volleyball was most of my life growing up😅
  • I've worked in outpatient physical therapy the last 5 years with youth, collegiate, and professional athletes from all sports and dance. I currently work in a clinic, have my own virtual practice, and am an Adjunct Professor in a local DPT program.
  • I love good food and drinks, laughing with the people I love most, and helping people discover their strength and movement abilities!
  • Music keeps me grounded, I love being by the water, and I prefer comedy & mystery over horror & thrillers...but I'm willing to watch a classic! 

I'll be sharing tips on understanding and managing aches and pains, injury prevention, mobility, and here to answer questions you may have about the body. I'm so excited to be your guide in this space that emphasizes longevity, movement, and wellness!


Do we have anything in common? Where are you from & what brings you here?

Feel free to drop any questions in the comments about me, my practice, or @ me in a conversation thread in any of the Spaces.


I can't wait to meet you!
