Growing up on the North Shore Allison has always been active in the mountains. She’s enthusiastic about sharing her love for the outdoors and helping her clients stay fit and active so they too can enjoy all the North Shore has to offer.
Allison graduated top of her class from the University of Melbourne Doctor of Physiotherapy program in 2014, after completion of her under-graduate degree at the University of British Columbia in Psychology (BApsych). During her time in Australia, Allison completed intensive training in Clinical Pilates and gained experience working with high-level athletes. Upon returning to Vancouver, Allison continued her Clinical Pilates training with STOTT, while also pursuing specialization in Pelvic Floor/Women’s Health Physiotherapy. Allison has also obtained certification in Dry Needling, completed a variety of courses in Manual Therapy through the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Orthopedic Division and gained additional knowledge in shoulder injuries through courses by Lynn Watson PT.
Allison believes the best outcomes are achieved by treating the whole person and incorporates a variety of treatment approaches for her clients including education, goal setting, Clinical Pilates, IMS, manual therapy, and home exercise programs. While Allison has experience working with a wide variety of clientele, she especially enjoys working with people through their pregnancy journeys and helping them return to the activities they love. She believes this is achieved by empowering her clients through education about the changes in their body and assisting in maintaining movement and strength when needed. She treats through a trauma informed lens and is passionate about postnatal rehabilitation, post-Caesarean section rehabilitation and core re-education.
Outside of work, you’ll find Allison in the mountains rock climbing, hiking, camping and skiing with her young son, husband and dog, Chester. Allison also loves weight lifting and baking sweet treats.
