Sarah graduated from The University of Alberta in 2007 with her Master of Science – Physical Therapy. While in Edmonton she worked in both private practice clinics and also in acute care at the University of Alberta Hospital. After moving to Winnipeg she began working at the Sport Manitoba Clinic in 2012. She is certified in Spinal and Peripheral manipulative therapy and has completed her Level 3 for manual therapy. As a member of the clinic Sarah has been treating concussions since 2013 being Shift accredited and an Impact Trained Physical Therapist (ITPT).
In addition, she is certified in acupuncture and Gokavi Transverse Technique (Intramuscular needling).

In addition, the use of needling adds another dimension to treatment particularly with sport injuries and chronic pain.

Outside of work Sarah has many other interests and passions which include spending time with her children, live music, volleyball, downhill skiing, water sports and travelling.
