Evelyn graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Applied Health and Kinesiology. After graduation, Evelyn became a Certified Athletic Therapist after completing an intensive written and practical examination.
After a few years as an athletic therapist, Evelyn enrolled in the Canadian College of Osteopathy’s Osteopathic Manual Practitioner program (D.O.M.P), where she completed the five-year program and her thesis. Her thesis “The Effects of Global Osteopathic Treatment on Active Individuals’ Balance” won the William Garner Sutherland Award, for furthering clinical osteopathy. This osteopathic approach helps Evelyn bring a holistic view to her assessments and treatments. Combining traditional athletic therapy with the high-level manual practice of osteopathy, Evelyn is able to look at health concerns for any age through a unique lens.
Evelyn’s practice allows her to treat everyone from the common everyday injury or strain to injuries resulting from high-level athletics. Using her experiences in a variety of high-level sports and her osteopathic training, she is able to develop management plans designed specifically for each individual client. She is very passionate about helping her clients feel their best and achieve their goals.
