Athletic Therapist

Kelly grew up in Oakville, Ontario and played a variety of sports growing up, but her main two were competitive artistic gymnastics and soccer. Kelly graduated from York University with a B.A. in Kinesiology in 2009, moving to Winnipeg to study at the University of Winnipeg where she received her B.Sc. in Athletic Therapy in 2012. She passed the national exam and was certified as an athletic therapist in 2014.

Kelly has worked with a variety of sports including basketball, hockey, football, rugby, and soccer. She’s also worked with various levels of competition from recreation to high performance and recently with the Canada Summer Games men’s and women’s soccer teams and women’s box lacrosse team.

Kelly’s goal as a therapist is to help you back to the level of activity/competition you want to be at, but to also make sure you are prepared for the basic movements of life to help prevent further issues.

She has knowledge in soft tissue release, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, such as cupping and blade techniques, and has completed the Athlete Brain Rehab Course.

Working as a field-based therapist with teams for the past few years, Kelly has a strong understanding of the demands required to perform at top performance.

Kelly believes working in a multidisciplinary clinic provides a wonderful environment for health professionals to work together to deliver complete rehab care and resources for patients.
