The Movement Schopp PT

Dr. William Schopp PT, DPT, CF-L1, TRS-C, Cert-CMFA

Founder & Lead Physical Therapist

I was born and raised in the South Bay (San Pedro) where I live with my wife, Ashley, and son, Liam. I have always been into sports and fitness from an early age. I started playing hockey and surfing as a youngster then got into Rugby and played Football at Mary Star High School. Now, my sports are the same as the people I work with: Crossfit, golf, surfing, & running.

In high school I decided I wanted to be a psychologist. Then I broke my knee playing football, went to physical therapy, and fell in love (with Physical Therapy).

If you know me, you’ll know when I set my heart on something there is no slowing down. From my Senior year in high school, I started down the health and wellness path starting with personal training, receiving my Bachelor of Science from Long Beach State in Kinesiology, and then receiving my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from St. Augustine in San Diego.

After PT school, I began seeing all of the flaws in our current healthcare world. This is when I decided to open The Movement Schopp, for all of the people who don’t want to fall through the cracks of our healthcare system, who don’t want to be told to stop doing what they love, and are looking for the Performance side of Physical Therapy.

Since then I have done countless post Doctorate courses specializing in the Fitness Athlete, Golf, and Running population which I call the silent sport population.

Thank you for your interest in our amazing team, and we look forward to helping you Build A Better You!

Dr. Ricky Braun-PT, DPT, ATC, TPI-L2

Performance Physical Therapist

I was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe. Throughout high school, I played multiple sports
including soccer, basketball, and baseball. I went on to play basketball in Junior College where I
unfortunately suffered multiple injuries. While rehabilitating these injuries, I took a profound
interest in the process of helping others get back to activity or function, eventually leading me to
the sports medicine field.

I received my bachelor’s degree at San Diego State University in athletic training and became a
certified athletic trainer (ATC). Throughout the athletic training education program, I was
fortunate enough to work in a variety of settings including high schools, community colleges, D1
programs, and professional sports. In my final year, I earned an internship with the San Diego
Chargers where I truly found my calling in helping others reach their functional and performance

Continuing the pursuit of sports medicine, I received my doctorate in physical therapy at the
University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in San Marcos. Since graduating, I have worked
primarily in the outpatient orthopedic and professional sports settings. I recently worked with
Orange County Soccer Club (OCSC) of the USL as their physical therapist and assistant athletic
trainer for the past two seasons. Winning a national championship with OCSC in 2021 was one
of the proudest moments of my professional career.
William and I have envisioned working together since
graduate school to help improve the quality of treatment in our current healthcare system.
Together, with The Movement Schopp team, we will provide exceptional care by applying the
most up-to-date and progressive research that will allow for the most optimal patient outcomes.

Jessica Crowder-PT, DPT, CF-L1

Performance Physical Therapist

Although I was born in San Diego, I grew up across the country in North Carolina, the Tar Heel State. There will always be a special place in my heart for NC, but life changes and new opportunities brought me back to the west coast and beautiful, sunny Southern California. I was always very active growing up, playing and participating in any sports activity that I could. However soccer stole my heart at an early age, and my love for the game fortunately took me through a D1 collegiate career at West Virginia University (WVU). I luckily never suffered a major injury throughout the many years of playing competitive soccer, but I definitely gained a better understanding of the importance of overall wellness, preventative rehab, and post-injury rehab/therapy. Soon after deciding to not pursue a future competitive soccer career, I found CrossFit and fell in love with the training approach. I knew immediately that I wanted to make CrossFit a major part of my life, both personally and professionally. Upon graduating from WVU with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology, I soon after relocated to SoCal and pursued a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in San Marcos. I worked in a traditional outpatient orthopedic setting after earning my graduate degree and learned a lot, but also solidified my passion for working with like-minded individuals to progress and modernize the field of Physical Therapy. Here at The Movement Schopp, we provide opportunities for the everyday athlete and active individual to get out of pain and get back to doing what they love!

Kristianna Tello

Performance Trainer & Client Care Specialist

I am the Client Care Specialist and Performance Trainer here at The Movement Schopp.

I am from San Pedro and grew up in the South Bay area. I played softball and ran cross country in high school and have been active since. My passion for health and wellness started in high school, when one of my teachers showed me the importance of this field. My love for this field has continued to grow and learning about my own body along the way has been rewarding, as I’ve gone through different struggles. Through these trials I’m grateful to say that I’ve not only learned and improved myself but I’ve been able to share my experience with others!

At the end of 2020, I injured my low back and hip, I had been trying different treatments that were only temporary relief. William did a workshop at a local gym that I used to attend on almost a daily basis, The Blueprint. I was desperate for some healing so I decided to come in for a package. Not only did he heal me and give me the tools to fix my problems for GOOD, during my last session he offered me a job and I’ve been here ever since!
