Dr. Paul Gaspar is a physical therapist, a small business owner, and community volunteer. He founded Gaspar Doctors of Physical Therapy in 1994 and, along with his wife Kristin, has grown the business to seven locations employing nearly 150 people, caring for over 6,500 patients annually.
Over the last two decades, Dr. Gaspar has dedicated himself to community service donating his time and financial support to local organizations including the Encinitas Rotary Club, San Dieguito Sports Medicine Foundation, Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, Encinitas Little League, Pop Warner Football, and the San Diego Regional Chamber.
Dr. Gaspar’s hands-on approach, his experience as a small business owner, and community involvement give him a keen understanding of the issues facing Encinitas and he’s running for mayor to bring people together to address the challenges facing the five communities that make up our city.
His commitment to fostering an environment of mutual respect, professional dialogue, and shared love of Encinitas, will guide him in continuing the leadership Kristin has provided as mayor. Rather than pitting people against each other, Dr. Gaspar will focus on finding areas of agreement and building consensus to lead Encinitas into the future, protecting our environment, creating jobs, and addressing public safety and infrastructure needs.
Paul and Kristin have three children, Carson, Payton, and Addie, 10, 8, and 6 years old. They enjoy family time, youth sports, and community volunteering.
