Dr. Bell was appointed as team physician for USA TRACK AND FIELD in 2008 and currently travels with them both nationally and internationally to provide sports medicine to the team athletes and urgent care services for the team and staff.  She excelled briefly as a competitive athlete in track and field until she resigned from the sport after being offered a dance scholarship with the San Francisco School of Ballet.

Dr. Bell was a student of and performed with the San Francisco Ballet repertoire under ballet masters Robert Gladstein, internationally renowned choreographer Michael Smuin and company director, Lew Christiansen for over 13 years.  During her career, she attended intensive classes and workshops at internationally recognized dance studios such as the Joffrey Ballet, the American Ballet Theatre, and Dance Theater of Harlem.

Her knowledge of athletic training and conditioning stems from 13 years of classical ballet training with the San Francisco Ballet and from years of experience as an personal and athletic trainer.  She is well recognized within the athletic community for her extensive experience in field sports medical injury management, peak performance enhancement and nutritional consultation.
