Danielle grew up playing volleyball, running hurdles, dancing tap, jazz and ballet, and competing internationally in Irish dancing. She understands how hard it can be to sit on the sidelines of your favourite physical activities. Her goal is to integrate rehab into your everyday life so that you miss as little of the fun as possible, or even none at all. She believes rehab is a team sport and combines manual therapy with exercise to get you back on your feet.
Danielle earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Alberta and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Robert Gordon University in Scotland. During her undergraduate, she volunteered with the varsity therapy program where she worked with the Pandas soccer team, Pandas and Bears volleyball teams, and the Bears football team. She loved learning about different uses of exercise for performance so much, she committed even more time to shadowing the strength and conditioning coaches at the High Performance Training and Research Centre.
Danielle’s main interests are sport medicine, spinal cord rehab, and animal rehab. Outside of the clinic, you can find Danielle Olympic lifting, baking (and eating) cookies, painting mountain scenes, learning to play the guitar, or enjoying Edmonton’s trendy ice cream shops (even in the winter).
