Amanda graduated from Western University with a Masters of Physiotherapy degree in 2016. Previous to this, she studied Human Kinetics at the University of Guelph.
Amanda loves to do lots of different types of exercise – if she’s running one day, she might be doing yoga the next, or biking, or weight lifting. She has also experimented with kick boxing classes, snow shoeing, hiking, rock climbing… the list goes on. This gives her a true appreciation for the frustration that happens when an injury is holding you back. Thankfully, her job is to help people get back to the sports that they miss (or just be able to live the life they want to live with less pain!).
Amanda has done a variety of continuing education courses to continue learning (because there’s never an end to learning!) including Acupuncture, the science of pain, and pelvic health, among others
