** Julie is now on maternity leave with a planned return in the fall of 2022 **
Julie was raised in Ottawa, and after spending time in Hamilton and Toronto for her schooling, has settled in Guelph since 2017. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at McMaster University in 2011, followed by a Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto in 2013.
Julie continues to develop her clinical skills by pursuing continuing education courses, such as certification with the Canadian Academy of Manual and Manipulative Therapy, the McMaster University Contemporary Medical Acupuncture for Health Professionals, as well as a variety of other orthopaedic interest courses such as McKenzie and Mulligan concepts.
Julie's approach to assessment and treatment utilizes evidence-based practice and clinical experience to determine the underlying cause of injury for each client. This allows for an individualized and tailored treatment plan to optimize recovery utilizing manual therapy, exercise prescription, and education on injury prevention and health promotion for the specific goals of each client.
Julie's passion for physiotherapy came naturally from enjoying many different sports throughout her life. In her free time, she keeps active with favourite sports such as running, soccer, curling and skiing. The most rewarding part of her workday is to see her clients return to the sports and activities that they love as well!
