Hillary has dedicated her career to working with kids, and is so grateful to have been on the Kids Physio Team since 2018. After spending an incredible year with her colleagues out west she returned to her hometown of Toronto to open 2 locations of Kids Physio with her business partner Jenn!
Hillary grew up training as a provincial level gymnast and coaching 3-6 year olds recreationally. It was her love of movement and appreciation for the human body that drew her to an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Queen’s University (2014). She then went on to obtain her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto (2016), with the main goal of working in Paediatrics.
Hillary’s favourite part of her job is how creative she gets to be while also thinking very critically and applying clinical reasoning. Although she does not have a lot of clinical availability at this time, Hillary is loving supporting her team members as they grow and learn.
Outside of work, Hillary loves having a coffee from her Ember mug, taking her dog Wally on trail walks, training for half marathons, binging netflix shows, and listening to her record collection.
