Sara grew up in Etobicoke, Ontario, and brings an avid interest in physical activity, human anatomy, and biomechanics to the Hamilton team. Sara’s interests were inspired by having played many sports including soccer, tennis, boxing, and horseback riding, and by the work of her grandfather, a paediatrician, and her uncle, an orthopaedic surgeon. A childhood spent flipping through anatomy textbooks and playing with her uncle’s anatomical models led Sara to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Human Kinetics, a Master’s degree in Biomechanics followed by a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy.
Since graduating, Sara has worked primarily in the field of orthopaedics, seizing any and all opportunities to work with children, and came quickly to the realization that working with kids is her true passion. Sara has experience working with infant conditions, cerebral palsy, vestibular conditions, paediatric gait, and sports injuries and has expanded her scope in the area of paediatric pelvic health, helping kids become bowel and bladder bosses. She is not afraid to bring out her silly side and her sense of humour is known for creating serious belly laughs.
Sara currently holds the position of Adjunct Clinical Professor in the McMaster School of Rehabilitation Sciences teaching anatomy and tutoring problem-based tutorials. Outside of her working hours you can find her spending time with her two cats JLo and Moose (she is a self-proclaimed cat-mom extraordinaire), channelling her inner chef/baker by trying new recipes, playing the guitar and spending time outdoors to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
