Liz is a clinic owner and practicing physiotherapist with a specialty in pelvic health physiotherapy. She is an instructor for Rocktape® Canada, a clinical lab facilitator at the University of Toronto, and a clinical supervisor for physiotherapy students.

As an orthopaedic and pelvic health physiotherapist, Liz integrates her over 10 years of clinical expertise to provide a unique whole-body approach to wellness. Liz’s practice focuses on helping women navigate pregnancy, menopause, and everything in between. Her care model addresses the underlying dysfunction causing injury and provides education to help prevent future re-injury. Her patient-centered approach empowers her patients to set goals, balance muscular dysfunction, and work toward optimal health. She does all of this through hands-on techniques, comprehensive education, and tailored progressive exercise programs.

Personally, as a busy mother of three children, the health habits that don’t slip for Liz are mindset and exercise – it is her positive outlook and passion to stay strong and mobile as she ages that are a few of her defining features.
