Jennifer believes that it is essential to work with her clients’ lifestyles and goals to help them achieve meaningful recoveries and return to doing the activities they love. In previous roles in post-surgical care, pediatrics, and private orthopedics, she was recognized for her positive demeanor, her use of evidence-informed techniques, and her ability to empower her clients in regaining healthy movement and preventing re-injury. Her treatment philosophy is focused on individualized exercise prescription, manual therapy, soft tissue techniques, and education. While she enjoys treating a multitude of conditions, Jennifer has a keen interest in upper extremity injuries, with plans to pursue a certification in hand therapy. She has completed the Arthritis Society’s Getting a Grip on Arthritis® osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis education program. Currently, she holds a Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia and a Masters of Public Health from Simon Fraser University.
When not in the clinic, Jennifer is likely hiking, doing yoga, eating dessert, or cuddling with her cat and dog while researching her next travel destination. She has also enjoyed learning through volunteer work, including supporting children and adults with disabilities in various settings, and participating in a mentored program to deepen her understanding of the lived experiences of people living with dementia.
