Holly understands first-hand the difference Physiotherapy can make in a patient’s life.  She competed internationally on Team Canada as a high jumper for several years but struggled with injuries throughout her athletic pursuits.  When she retired from competition, she focused her energy on becoming a Physiotherapist.  Holly completed her Master’s degree in Physiotherapy at the University of British Columbia.  Holly complete her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2019.

Holly recognizes that her patients may benefit from different forms of treatment and has focused her postgraduate work on ensuring a comprehensive, well-rounded repertoire of treatment for those suffering from orthopedic injuries.  She uses a combination of techniques rich in manual and manipulative therapy, including symptom modification, trigger point release, Shockwave Therapy, Functional Dry Needling(IMS) as well as client education and individualized exercise programs to achieve client goals.  She firmly believes in treating not only patient symptoms but also the source of pain to ensure long-term relief for her patients.

Prior to her Physiotherapy degrees, Holly graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.Sc. in Kinesiology and a B.Sc. in Psychology, accompanied by a minor in French from Washington State University She was a member of the WSU Athletics Track & Field Team and competed in high jump.
