I'm available at this clinic: West Island
Emily graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from the University of Windsor, ON and a Master's degree in Physiotherapy from McGill University. She is a licensed member of l'Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec (OPPQ) and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA).
During her undergrad, Emily played 5 years for the varsity basketball team, where she had the chance to travel the country and the world competing at an elite level. This has provided her with a strong sports therapy and exercise background that she's able to transfer to her professional practice.
Emily's sport background has allowed her to develop a therapeutic approach where client empowerment is at the forefront, emphasizing the importance of the client taking an active role in their rehabilitation process. She believes in the importance of a team approach, where she can combine manual techniques and a strong home exercise program.
Emily is also certified in the Complete Concussion Management (CCMI) course; where she provides multimodal baseline testing for individual athletes and teams, acute and chronic concussion assessments, treatment, and rehabilitation. She can provide patients with a safe and research-based step-by-step return to learn, work & play after sustaining a concussion.
She has successfully completed the course for Prescribing Radiographs for Physiotherapists, which the OPPQ recognizes as a rapidly evolving role that allows the order of medical diagnostic imaging in special circumstances.
She is currently completing her Level 1 Manual Therapy certification and then plans on taking the subsequent continuing education courses in Manual Therapy. She is also eager to take courses in McKenzie and Mulligan techniques, in order to develop well-rounded treatment approaches.
During her spare time, Emily is still actively involved in the basketball community where she coaches at Vanier College. She also enjoys living an active lifestyle through running, yoga, and weight training.
