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 Masters in Physiotherapy in Dublin, Ireland. Her interest in working with children comes from volunteering at an orphanage for disabled children in India where she gained experience with children and babies with cerebral palsy, amputees, and developmental delays. During her schooling, she completed her thesis on the treatment of spinal cord injury-related pain using robotic gait devices.
Along with her love for treating injuries, Tori has a keen interest in working with children and babies with hypermobility, toe walking, coordination disorders, autism spectrum disorder, and more!
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!
Tori completed her Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy locally at Camosun College. During this time she gained experience working with athletes of all different ages and abilities from professional lacrosse players to children with growth related conditions. Tori is a Certified First Responder and has valuable experience with acute and chronic injury assessment and treatment alongside a special interest in biomechanical assessments to prevent future injuries from occurring.
In her spare time, Tori enjoys hiking with her family’s labradoodle, playing hockey, and enjoying the beautiful mountains and beaches that the island has to offer!
