Originally from Colombia, Ale moved to Canada at age 7 and has made North Vancouver her home ever since. Since she was young, Ale has always had a passion for kids which led to her keen interest in pediatric physiotherapy. She has been coaching kids in swimming for the past 11 years through her family’s business called SwimFaster. She grew up a competitive swimmer and was able to swim varsity at Concordia University in sunny California while completing her Bachelor of Arts degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a Rehabilitation emphasis.
After school, Ale volunteered as head coach of the swim program for Special Olympics in North Vancouver where she was able to work with adults and children of varying abilities. Ale then moved to Kingston Ontario to complete her Masters of Physical Therapy at Queens University. Ale was able to volunteer at Kids Physio during summer in the first year of her Masters, which is where she realized this was the perfect setting and team for her. Ale believes in the benefits that physiotherapy can provide in a child’s life and their family to improve their quality of life for the long term. Being able to make a true difference for a child of any age so that they can live and play as best as possible, makes every day worthwhile.
In her free time, Ale enjoys spending time with family and friends, swimming in any body of water, exploring the hikes in BC, and travelling. She is super excited to join the team at Kids Physio Group and looks forward to meeting all the wonderful kiddos! Ale is also fluent in Spanish.
