Meet Ashley: Passionate Physiotherapist and Fitness Educator

Ashley grew up in Osoyoos and played varsity soccer while obtaining her major in biology. A love for traveling led her to obtain a Masters of Physiotherapy degree in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Upon her return, she also found a love of teaching people about physical fitness and decided to get her personal training certificate.

Ashley loves using movement as a tool to help people alleviate injuries and promote healthy living. As well, she approaches the patient with a wholistic problem-solving attitude. She can treat symptoms but prefers to find the mechanism behind the injury to prevent further injuries.

She is a firm believer in prevention and feels this is key in bettering any patient’s health goals. She has worked with musculoskeletal issues, neurological conditions, paediatrics and falls prevention.
