I have been a physiotherapist for over thirty years and love what I do. My Bachelor of Arts Degree in Physical Education (1975) from the University of Western Ontario and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto (1978) gave me the building blocks for my career. Since that time, I have practiced my profession and continued advanced training in my areas of special interest including Orthopaedics, Sports Therapy, Therapeutic Exercise, Lymphatic Drainage, CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation.
My level of expertise in sports physio, which includes a Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy (1986), has given me the opportunity to serve as the core medical staff in two Olympic Games (1984, 1988), two Pan American Games (1987, 2011) and the Commonwealth Games (1994). Since 2007, I have been a therapist for the Women's National Soccer Team and in that capacity I have traveled to over a dozen countries for many international events including the Women's Soccer World Cup in China (2007), the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Juarez (2008) and the World Cup Qualification Tournament in Cancun (2011). I am looking forward to attending my third Olympics as core medical staff with this talented team in their pursuit of excellence in London, 2012.
