Shirley grew up in Toronto, Ontario and completed her undergrad in Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario. She then pursued her Masters in physical therapy at the University of Alberta, and moved to Vancouver after her studies.
Shirley joined the Kids Physio Group after 10 years of experience in Physiotherapy. Her passion for children and families was discovered through entering the world of parenthood and having little kiddos of her own. She is pursuing her love and joy in helping children reach their potential.
She is particularly passionate in the area of care for babies and young children. This includes treating children with torticollis, plagiocephaly, delayed gross motor skills, and more. Shirley is also passionate about sharing knowledge especially in the early years of development through educational talks and webinars. She is excited at this great opportunity to be a part of your story!
Most of Shirley’s time is occupied with chasing around her little kiddos and spending time with her young family. When she has some spare time, she loves playing volleyball and staying active.
Shirley is able to offer sessions in Cantonese.
