Dr. Suma Metla - CEO


Dr. Suma Metla is a physical therapist who specializes in pediatric care. She received her doctorate in physical therapy in 2015 at Florida International University and pediatric training at Arnold and Winnie Palmer Hospitals for Women and Children. She has treated infants and keiki across all the Hawaiian islands. 

She also holds an infant massage coaching certification and is a registered 200 hour yoga teacher! She cares deeply about keiki and families, and has served as a board member for Special Olympics, March of Dimes, and is currently on board with Helping Hands Hawaii. 

Moving to Hawaii, she noticed that there is a significant lack of support for new parents. As new parenthood can be a lonely and stressful time, she wanted to give parents access to the resources, guidance, and community they need to not only ease their worries, but set them up for a healthy development for their keiki. With this, Three Little Ducks was born.

Though she is quite the busy mom, she finds time to do the things she loves, including spending time with friends and family, kayaking, and going to her favorite beach spot!

Dr. Kaleigh Bull - pediatric physical therapy on Oahu, Hawaii


Dr. Kaleigh knew from the time she was a child that she wanted to work with kids when she grew up and was always fascinated by the intricacies of the human body. Pediatric Physical Therapy was the perfect fit.

She started the journey of obtaining her dream job babysitting neighborhood families of South Elgin, Illinois, until she was old enough to start the academia to get there. Dr. Kaleigh obtained her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After graduation, she started working for a Pediatric Home Health Agency in Colorado, where she met her partner, Roger and adopted Willow, her adorable fur-baby. She discovered that her dream job was every bit as sweet and fulfilling as she had hoped. However, her longing to move to Hawaii started to build, which is when she and her family relocated to Oahu and joined our ‘ohana!

She stumbled upon Three Little Ducks when living in Hawaii was still just a dream of hers, and quickly fell in love with our mission and Dr. Suma's passion to increase accessibility of PT services for little ones on the island.

She feels so grateful to be part of such an incredible company and community, and continue to live out her dream.

She loves to spend her free time exploring, swimming, scuba diving and (attempting to) free dive, as she is convinced she has sea water running through her veins. She also has been practicing yoga for the past ten years, and obtained her 200 YTT in 2020.

Dr. Rachel Johnston - pediatric physical therapy on Oahu, Hawaii


Dr. Rachel is originally from Seattle, WA and graduated from Washington State University with her B.S. in Biology. She then moved to Las Vegas to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Touro University Nevada in 2021. She has experience as a pediatric PT working in Las Vegas, Seattle, and San Diego. Due to her love of the ocean and the island, she now resides on Oahu in Hawaii Kai with her partner (also a PT) and her cat, Boo. She joined the Three Little Ducks team in order to provide top level care to keiki, no matter how small, and to provide ongoing support and empowerment to ‘ohana all over the island. She loves finding creative ways to motivate keiki to enjoy physical therapy and reach their goals! She also enjoys teaching parents/caregivers, so they can be involved every step of the way.

In her free time, you will most likely find her reading on the beach, horseback riding, baking, painting, hiking, skiing, or attempting to surf.
