Despite being a Maple Leafs fan, we like Ross. And, we think he is pretty funny. He is very passionate about helping people recover from all types of injury. With years of experience in training, coaching and mentoring athletes, he not only holds a degree in physiotherapy but also one in kinesiology. He is also a jack of all sports himself and is the guy to turn to for recovering from injury with his strong manual therapy skills. Other passions? Food. Especially cookies and stir-frys…

Rob not only has taken post-graduate training in concussion rehab, manual therapy, and treatment of vestibular/balance issues including vertigo; he has a fabulous background in kinesiology and biomechanics. He’s particularly experienced in many sports injuries, from his years of competitive soccer and injuring every part of his own body, he gets it what you are going through! A hockey and golf diehard, in his spare time you can find him on the rink or the links.

The handyman of our team, Chris can fix anything that ails you. He has a vast collection of skills from manual therapy to acupuncture as well as having many years of experience. He’s an outdoor guy who recently moved from Vancouver to explore the Okanagan on bike, shoes and skis. He’s a bit of a weather connoisseur and has a little obsession with checking the forecast regularly. When he’s not outside though, you might find him buying all the day old doughnuts at Ratio….he has a little weakness for baking.

The girl next door.
Lauryn is our true Canadian girl. She grew up on an apple farm (although we are still waiting for her to bake us an apple pie…) in a tiny town in Ontario and is an outdoorsy kinda gal. She loves “dad” jokes and bad puns and has a quirky trait of giving her house plants names. She has had a lifetime of experience with physiotherapy, with both of her parents being physiotherapists as well. She’s a strong advocate of the global movement, “Exercise is Medicine” and has great manual therapy skills and rehabilitation knowledge. She is a true believer in combining excellent physiotherapy treatment with exercise for the best results.
Cassandra is one diverse physiotherapist. Born and raised in Yellowknife, but has Italian and Newfie roots, Cass headed to Saskatchewan for her university training. She loves to fish, cook pasta and considers -40 degrees a balmy day. This is one adaptable, easy-going Northern gal. You’ll love her quirky sense of humor and the way she makes you feel like you’ve known her forever. She is a very focused, passionate physiotherapist who is determined to get her patients back on their feet no matter what!

Stephanie is our globetrotter. Having completed a Kinesiology degree at the University of Alberta, she then went on to pursue her Master in Physiotherapy Studies in Australia. Over the past 8 years she has lived between the two countries, but has come full circle to return to settle on Canadian soil. Being raised in Alberta she has always longed to live in beautiful British Columbia so has finally fulfilled this dream by relocating to the Okanagan. She has a strong manual therapy background, but in recent years her feminist side has emerged and has pursued extra training in Women’s health and pelvic floor rehabilitation. In her spare time don’t be surprised if you see her cutting a few laps at the hill before her shift, and in the summer….well she’s open to suggestions on what to explore in the Okanagan!
The wizard behind our customer service, front desk management, and the efficiency of our office, Ali is not only our administrative assistant but the best at making our patients happy. This girl is smart. Besides, she loves to clean. Those army camp corners on our treatment beds? Ali has a an almost obsessive attention to detail, order and cleanliness. She keeps our clinic running like a well-oiled machine.
The mastermind behind our social media and marketing platform, this is one multi-tasking administrative assistant that is not only got an eye for detail, she is always happy! She’s very passionate about customer service, loves people, and aims to please. Anything you need while visiting us, ask Lisa! Besides that, she is intuitive, a whiz at handling administrative duties and wants to make sure your experience with us is perfect.
Denise is the star of our team when it comes to anything to do with data, numbers and information. She’s a proficient book-keeper with years of experience-this girl never makes a mistake! Although we hate to sound stereotypical, she’s from the Netherlands... and is a bit of a gouda connoisseur.
Sue is without a doubt the perfectionist of our front desk team and an awesome administrative assistant. She likes efficiency, order and getting her work done now! Need anything? She’s on it. We think Sue is great because she is a self-proclaimed poor joke teller (we still laugh) and loves a good joke, an avid kayaker, lover of Labrador retrievers, and a good glass of wine. Her motto? If there is a job to do, let’s get it done!
