Tori comes to us from the Sunshine Coast city of Powell River, BC. Her interest in physiotherapy began when she suffered a severe knee injury playing soccer at 12 years old. It was then that Tori found the importance of physiotherapy for children and inspired her future career path.
Tori completed her Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy locally at Camosun College. During this time she was able to gain experience working with athletes of all different ages and abilities, including; Olympic and Paralympic athletes, CFL athletes, Junior hockey teams, Senior A lacrosse, and the Canadian women’s development field hockey team. Tori is a Certified First Responder and has valuable experience with concussion management, acute and chronic musculoskeletal injury assessment and treatment, and emergency on-field injury management.
After moving to Dublin, Ireland, Tori pursued her Professional Masters in Physiotherapy. During her schooling, she completed her thesis on the treatment of spinal cord injury-related pain using robotic gait devices. Tori fell even more in love with pediatric physiotherapy when she volunteered at an orphanage for disabled children in India.
Tori is passionate about incorporating the six F Words of Childhood Disability in all her treatments: Function, Family, Friends, Fitness, Future, and Fun! She is excited to expand on her pediatric experience at Kids Physio working with babies, children, and teens on Vancouver Island to help them meet their full potential whether it be getting back on that gymnastics mat or taking their very first steps!
In her spare time, Tori enjoys long walks with her family’s labradoodle, playing hockey, and enjoying the beautiful mountains and beaches that the island has to offer!
