Biography

Nicole completed her Masters of Physiotherapy in 2007 at Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Australia. Prior to that, she completed a Bachelor of Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia. She is certified in both anatomical acupuncture (through the Acupuncture Federation of Canada Institute), as well as Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RTUS) and has trained as a STOTT Pilates instructor. Incorporating all of these skills into her sessions with patients allows for a holistic approach in her treatment plans. Nicole also completed training with the ‘Discover Physio Series’ in 2012 and has since been passionate about using both the “Integrated Systems Model” (by Lee and Lee) as well as the “Thoracic Ring Approach” (by Linda-Joy Lee) in her treatment sessions. This allows for an assessment and treatment of the whole person, including specific techniques on the thorax and pelvis. The emphasis is on finding what is truly ‘driving’ the patients injury and/or non-optimal movement so that whole body function can be restored. Originally from Vancouver, Nicole has over 17 years of experience competing and coaching in synchronized swimming at a high performance level. She is a level III NCCP coach and remains active in the sport. While in Australia, Nicole coached and trained tri-athletes and footballers. In addition, she completed her master’s thesis on core stability training to prevent injury in Australian Rules Football athletes. Other personal interests of Nicole’s include surfing, competing in Open Water swims, life guarding and other adventure races. Her participation in many different sports has given Nicole an in depth understanding of multiple types of injuries and the importance that patients place on being able to return to the activities that they are passionate about.
