Get To Know Me
Emily is a 2021 graduate of the Master of Science in Physical Therapy program at Queen’s University and is a Registered Physiotherapist with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. Before her physiotherapy education, she achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Kinetics at the University of Guelph in 2018.
Emily’s passion for movement and health began with playing sports and regularly engaging in physical activity at a very young age. Since then, she has continued this passion through her education and active lifestyle. With Emily’s personal and educational experience, Emily can help clients restore, maintain and optimize physical function using a client-centred, active, and evidence-based approach. Emily is a strong believer in “exercise is medicine”, and this motto is reflected in her treatment style, which focuses on exercise, education and hands-on techniques.
Since graduation, Emily has worked in the private practice setting and has experience treating clients with a variety of neuromuscular, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal injuries.
Emily has her Level 1 in Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy and is eager to continue building her physiotherapy skills and continue to work towards becoming a sports physiotherapist in the future.
Outside the clinic, you can find Emily hiking, camping, running, playing sports or doing yoga. When Emily needs a break from all the hustle-and-bustle, you can find her snapping photos of landscapes and nature, or cuddling up with her fur baby, Leia!
Emily is thrilled to be a part of the CONNECT Rehab team and she is eager to help the community get back to the activities they love!
