As a graduate of Exercise Science from the University of British Columbia’s School of Kinesiology, Nicole had the opportunity to work with athletes and individuals of all ages and skill levels before completing her Masters degree in Physiotherapy at McMaster University in 2008.
Nicole has a rich background in athletic training, injury prevention, sports performance + conditioning, treatment of running injuries, screening for movement dysfunctions, and a passion for health promotion. In addition to being certified in both Strength & Conditioning (NSCA-CSCS) and Acupuncture (CAFCI), Nicole has also completed her Diploma of Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT).
The connections between all of the amazingly complex systems of the human body have always fascinated Nicole. On her search to find order amongst these connections she came across the Integrated Systems Model in 2010, and has since gone on to assist and encourage others on their way to applying these ideas and skills into their own individual and unique practices. Using the Integrated Systems Model, Nicole is able organize and apply her various assessment and treatment skills in a specific and personalized manner to optimize performance and function of the whole person.
In addition to her time at the clinic, Nicole continues to work in high performance sport with Beach Volleyball Canada as head physiotherapist.
