Physiotherapy Assistant

Credentials: 

  • Occupational Therapy Assistant/Physiotherapy Assistant Diploma from St. Clair College


History: 
I was born and raised in Lakeshore and graduated as an Occupational Therapy Assistant and a Physiotherapy Assistant from St. Clair College. Being active throughout my life, through competitive soccer, track and field as well as general fitness, I took an interest in the health care field. I first graduated with a Fitness and Health Promotion Diploma from Fanshawe College. While in this program, I took an Athletic Injuries course which introduced me to the rehabilitation of injuries and led me to continue on with my education. During the OTA/PTA program, I was able to gain experience in a variety of settings including privately owned clinics. Throughout these experiences, I was able to work with a variety of clients to help rehabilitate their injuries. I am always learning from the Physiotherapists here at Active Body, and will continue to learn and grow throughout my career.

We have worked together since then and I look forward to many more with Sherri and JP.
