Aleesha was born and raised in the beautiful province of British Columbia where she completed both her Bachelor of Kinesiology and Master of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia. Growing up in a sport-crazed family she watched and played many sports, with her favourites being: soccer, hockey, and golf. Her passion for sports steered her in the direction of becoming a Physical Therapist.
From a young age, Aleesha always knew she wanted to pursue a career in pediatrics. Over the years, through coaching, volunteering, working and placements, Aleesha gained ample experience and enjoyed working with kiddos of all different ages and abilities – including but not limited to, down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, gross motor delays, and musculoskeletal injuries. In fact, Aleesha completed a 6-week placement at Kids Physio Group North Vancouver where her desire to work in a pediatric physiotherapy clinic was confirmed, as she fell in love with the atmosphere and the people. As a result, Aleesha jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this amazing team and community! Aleesha is excited to get to know and work in collaboration with kiddos and their families, to help them reach their goals, no matter how big or small! She is passionate and committed to making physiotherapy sessions FUN, creative, and individualized for each and every kiddo.
