Certified Athletic Therapist CAT(C) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist CSCS Cranial Applications Level 1 First Responder, CPR/AED Level HCP Karla spent 12 years as a competitive skater with the York Region Skating Academy and her university days as a sprinter with the York University Varsity Track & Field team where she received a degree in Kinesiology. She continued her studies at Sheridan College and now also holds a Bachelor of Health Science (Athletic Therapy). She is certified through the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association and the National Strength & Conditioning Association. She is also part of the medical support staff with the Canadian Women's National Soccer Program, while not traveling with CWNT she is also involved with the Ontario Athletic Therapists Association (OATA) as the Vice Chair of the Social Media & Marketing Committee. In 2011, she was the Assistant Athletic Therapist at Mount Allison University where her primary responsibilities were with their football team while also treating all varsity athletes in the Mounties' Athletic Therapy clinic. Karla specializes in musculoskeletal injuries related to sport and work (as they can be equally as complicated!). She has worked with a wide range of clientele from office workers to high performance athletes. Her approach to therapy is not just to treat the symptoms but determine the root of your dysfunction - thus reducing the risk of re-injury. She takes a whole body approach to treatment, as the human body works in a series of chains - everything is connected. With her background as a competitive figure skater and sprinter she understands that there is a balance between manual therapy and functional movement and it should be tailored to a patient’s specific needs and goals – whether it is increased fitness, improved performance or the return to everyday activities, she can help you. Other events and sports organizations she has worked with: Canada Soccer - Women's National Program; CONCACAF U15 Girls Championships - Lead Therapist.
