Jamie holds a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Glasgow Caledonian University, graduating in 2018.
Jamie’s lifelong passion for dance and fitness brought her to Scotland to study physiotherapy where she conducted research on injury incidence and prevention in Highland Dancers. Since graduating Jamie has worked mostly in private practice clinical settings as a physiotherapist as well as a clinical pilates instructor. This experience, as well as a wide variety of continuing education courses has provided a well-rounded understanding of a multitude of injuries, and how to treat and to prevent recurrence.
Jamie has completed post graduate education through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, Australian Physiotherapy Association, GLA:D Canada and the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada. She has tailored her continuing education to focus on gerontology and falls prevention and greatly enjoys working with this population. Her expertise in this area allows her to better serve the complex needs of older individuals and help them mitigate the risks of falling and improve their overall health and well-being.
Jamie believes a strong therapeutic alliance coupled with an active approach to treatment is key to successful injury prevention and management. In her free time, she enjoys travelling, dancing, running and exercising. Jamie is returning to Halifax after spending the last year and a half working and travelling in Australia and is keen to put the knowledge and skills learnt there into practice.
