Holly has always enjoyed an active lifestyle and competed internationally on team Canada as a high jumper for 7 years, including competing at world championships, world university games and Commonwealth Games. Faced with injuries throughout her athletic career, Holly eventually let go of sport and focused her energy on becoming a physiotherapist so she could help others who struggle with injuries as well.
Starting her studies at the University of Washington State, Holly graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.Sc. in Kinesiology and a B.Sc. in Psychology, accompanied by a minor in French. Next, she completed her Master’s degree in Physiotherapy at UBC. Holly also holds certifications in IMS (Dry Needling), Shockwave Therapy, K-Tape, Mulligan Concept, and Soft Tissue Release.
Holly’s Psychology training allows her to take a holistic approach and focus on the big picture, considering both the body and mind. She uses a combination of techniques such as manual therapy, symptom modification, individualized exercise programs, soft tissue work, trigger point release, as well as client education to achieve treatment goals. Holly truly believes in empowering clients to take control of their rehabilitation process and works to help them return to work or sport as well as achieve their goals and live pain-free.
When not working in the clinic, Holly can be found throughout Vancouver taking advantage of our beautiful outdoor playground. Keep an eye out for her running around the seawall, on the North Shore hiking nearby trails, or taking in a morning yoga class (and a coffee and donut afterwards of course!). Currently, Holly is completing her Doctorate in Physical Therapy (graduating 2019).
