Erin is originally from the Lake Huron area of Ontario. She attended the University of Ottawa and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Biotechnology in 2007. Although originally drawn towards research, her education in genetic, cellular, and organ system biology inevitably led her to pursue a career in health care. She was drawn specifically to physiotherapy because of its focus on creating patient independence and empowerment with knowledge and movement. She graduated from the Masters of Physiotherapy program at Queen’s University in 2010. Prior to moving to the Kootenays, Erin was able to practice in a Running Specific Physiotherapy Clinic and was honoured to work with members of the Canadian Military as well as volunteer for the Adaptive Alpine Ski Team.
As a lifelong, passionate skier she was eventually drawn to the Kootenay region for its pristine mountain wilderness. She has a love of all things outdoors including skiing, backcountry skiing, climbing, canoeing, hiking, and trail running and mountain biking with her dog Benny. Erin is also an avid ammateur potter and sculptor.
Erin has worked in private practice in Rossland and Castlegar since 2014. She is dedicated to providing quality physiotherapy care, helping her patients to achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. She has pursued continuing education in manual therapy, pain science, Dry Needling, and cupping. She is continually pursuing education and diversifying her skill sets. Erin is excited to be a member of the team at the Institute of Movement and joined the practice in 2020. She loves the opportunity to work with members of different health care practices in a collaborative team setting.
