Penina is a musician and writer living right on the border between San Francisco and Daly City. She grew up in Palo Alto, California and graduated from Oberlin College in 2009, where she studied both History and Dance. She worked in the non-profit sector for many years, focusing on social justice issues ranging from immigrant rights to conflict mediation in Israel/Palestine. Penina also has a background in modern dance and yoga, and feels very lucky to have found her way to Psoas. When she’s not working, playing music, or writing, you can usually find her snooping around bookstores.
Zack is a native of San Francisco and has always felt a strong connection to the community. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz (Go Slugs!) with a degree in Legal Studies and Combined Politics/Latin American and Latino Studies, he came back to the city to explore the health/fitness scene. He quickly began working at AcroSports where he trained in aerial and tumbling. From there he began training at SF Crossfit, where he found his passion. His dedication to the community and love for exercise also led him to a Track and Field coaching position at his alma mater, Stuart Hall High School. As part of his interest in health, he’s excited for the experience he will gain working at Psoas.
Mia is originally from the East Bay and moved to San Francisco at a young age. She made her way from Skyline College to SF State to find her true passion in healthcare. She continued her education at Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts and is now a Licensed Phlebotomist. Just after setting foot into the medical field, she accepted a contracting opportunity at Google. Exploring all these different career options early on has helped Mia mesh skills seamlessly and apply them to various endeavors. When she is not at work she loves to experiment in the kitchen, work out, and binge watch her favorite television shows — (New Girl and Master Chef Jr. are two favorites!). She is proud to be a part of such a professional team at Psoas and can’t wait to see what her future here has in store.
