I have lived in Prince George for over 20 years. My husband and I moved to Prince George to open a bike and ski store in the late 1990s. I spent the first decade of my life in Prince George working in Forestry Research and getting my Masters in Natural Resource Management. My husband and I both did a career change with the shift in economy and I was accepted into the Physiotherapy Program at UBC and he went on to Northern Medical Program and to become a local Family Physician.
After training, I came back to the North and I worked in the Hospital, and spent five years at the Child Development Centre after which I opened my own practice, Physio in Motion. My area of interest is Pediatrics and neurological conditions; I work with a variety of children and adults with special needs. I run a mobile clinic and see people in their homes, care facilities, and other community places. I do group exercise classes, such as the COPD SOB group at AiMHi, and I work for School District 91 and 60.
I have two young children and we enjoy the aspects of active life that Prince George has to offer.
