Diane Lee & Associates
Leigh has been active in sport from a young age, and was first exposed to physiotherapy following an ankle injury at age 13. Her interest in health and physical activity continued through high school while she played fast pitch softball, volleyball and basketball.
After studying kinesiology for two years she decided that pursuing a career in physiotherapy was the path she wanted to follow. Leigh graduated from The University of British Columbia in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. For the first 10 years after graduating, Leigh worked in private practice primarily with interdisciplinary teams assisting patients with injury, loss of function, and persistent pain conditions to improve their quality of life, function and overall well being. Leigh joined Diane Lee & Associates following her second maternity leave in 2016. Leigh has completed post-graduate training in orthopaedics (Level 3 Manual Therapy through Orthopaedic Division of CPA, Mulligan Concept) and chronic pain (Explain Pain). She obtained her acupuncture certification through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute in 2009, and has completed further training in Trigger Point Dry Needling. Leigh is also a women’s health pelvic floor therapist and has training and experience working with urinary incontinence and pelvic pain conditions. She completed the Integrated Systems Model Series in 2017, certified in 2018 and is now a senior assistant and mentor for the ISM Series.
