Biography

Amy received her Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario. She has been a clinical instructor for the University of Toronto Department of Physical Therapy since 2013, and received the Clinical Instructor Recognition Award in 2014.

She is proud to share that she is now the first physiotherapist in Ontario to be certified in NeuroKinetic Therapy Level 3. This is an innovative and powerful approach that taps into the inefficiencies of the motor control system, and guides treatment towards rebalancing dysfunctional movement patterns.

Amy has also studied with the Gray Institute for Functional Transformation (GIFT) and is a part of the Fellowship of Functional Applied Science. This takes a 360 degree view of human movement, combining the physical, biological and behavioural sciences, and created an authentic, 3-dimensional approach to assessing and rehabilitating movement.

She has also completed the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program, Level 2 Manual Therapy certifications, APTEI and Mulligan Concept courses, among others.

Prior to her physiotherapy training, Amy had completed a double major in Psychology and Physiology at the University of Toronto, and graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science with High Distinction. Amy also trained as a dancer with the School of Atelier Ballet, specializing in ballet, baroque dance and classical Spanish dance. She currently practices yoga, plays ultimate frisbee, and dabbles in salsa and hip hop.
