During her time at McMaster, Laura was a member of the Women’s Hockey team; served as a student strength and conditioning coach for the Men’s and Women’s Varsity Soccer teams; and was a student therapist for the Men’s Football team.

Laura has worked with vast populations, including elite-level athletes, those with neurological conditions, pediatrics and older adults. She has experience treating acute and chronic sport-related injuries, pre-operative and post-operative patients and has a strong interest in optimizing movement patterns and preventing re-injury. Laura takes an active patient-centered approach to therapy that combines individualized exercise prescription, manual therapy, and education to help her patients achieve their goals and return to their meaningful life activities.

As a believer in life-long learning, Laura has obtained her Level 1 Orthopedic Division Manual Therapy level and is looking forward to expanding her skillset by progressing through the manual therapy certifications and obtaining her certification in acupuncture and dry needling.

When she's not in the clinic, you can find Laura playing hockey, playing squash, strength training, or exploring new hiking trails.
