Jenny’s journey to becoming a physiotherapist took a unique path. Having worked in a different medical profession for a number of years, she was seeking a change. Being active all her life and fascinated by the human body, she returned to school for a kinesiology after-degree. During that time, she discovered her passion for rehabilitation medicine through her work with oncology patients and decided to continue her education and pursue physiotherapy.
As a University of Alberta graduate, Jenny’s treatment approach is educating and empowering patients to be actively involved in their recovery. She provides individualized treatment plans to help patients return to what they enjoy doing as quickly as possible.
Jenny continues to further her skill set through post-graduate orthopaedic training. She is currently completing Level 3 of the Advanced Integrated Musculoskeletal Program from the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Orthopaedic Division and is authorized to perform spinal manipulation. She has completed a fellowship in musculoskeletal physiotherapy under the extensive mentorship of Clinical Specialist Jeff Begg, PT. She is trained in the Mulligan Manual Therapy Concept, in Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), and is authorized to use needles in practice. She also has a special interest in cancer rehabilitation.
Outside of work, Jenny greatly values giving back to the community and is always volunteering in some capacity. Her experience ranges widely, including organizing large non-profit initiatives, mentoring in inner-city youth centre, coaching volleyball, and facilitating courses for the University of Alberta. Jenny enjoys being active and is often involved in some type of physical activity or sport. She is always on the go and ready for her next adventure.
