About Rachelle

Rachelle’s passion for pediatric physiotherapy was sparked when she volunteered at a child-centered physio clinic while completing her Bachelor of Kinesiology degree at the University of Calgary. The desire to learn more lead her to a Masters of Physical Therapy degree at UBC, where she was fortunate to have clinical placements at Sunny Hill Health Center for Children in Vancouver and at a pediatric clinic in rural Southern India. Rachelle has experience working as a kinesiologist, behaviour interventionist, and as a physiotherapist with the At Home Program for children with autism. She is friendly and outgoing and continues to seek further education to expand her skills.

Rachelle grew up in Victoria and is excited to work with kids and their families in a fun and effective environment made just for them! She is dedicated to helping people of all ages and all abilities achieve their goals, whether that is participating in an activity, reaching gross motor milestones, or returning to sport.

Outside of work you can find Rachelle exploring the west coast via hiking trail or stand up paddle board, immersing herself in a book, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
