About Monika

Monika loves to play and knew she wanted a career with children so she could play every day! Monika grew up on a farm in the Okanagan where she was a competitive equestrian in the sport of dressage where she competed for team Canada. In addition to horse riding, she is a triathlete racing up to the Ironman distance (3.8km swim, 180km bike and a 42km run all in one day!)

Monika did not follow the traditional path to becoming PT. She has an engineering background where she worked on pipelines, windmills, and cyclotrons. She has a hands-on philosophy which she brings into her life by doing her own car maintenance and fixing things around the house.

After her bachelors Monika went to the UK to pursue her Master of Science in Physiotherapy where she worked with children at a local children’s hospital. She also worked as a tutor with elementary children who were struggling with reading. In her spare time you won’t find her sitting still but rather baking up a storm, exploring BC with her dog Kona, skiing, riding, biking, or working on new inventions to combine the electrical engineering world with physiotherapy.
