Danielle

Registered Physiotherapist
BScPT

Danielle received her Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine.  While in school, Danielle discovered a deep interest in learning about the brain and nervous system.  She became a keen student in learning how to help people with all conditions, but especially enjoys the unique challenges the nervous system can pose.  Danielle enjoys working with people of all ages--from children to centenarians--to help them improve their function, regain their independence and help them achieve their goals.

As a self-professed “nerd” who loves learning and discovering, after graduating (that very week!) she started taking additional courses to help hone her skills, dive deeper into subject matter and better help her to help others. She enjoys taking courses as well as continuing to learn at in-services, reading journal articles and asking questions of experts at every opportunity! Danielle has worked in several rehab settings and especially enjoyed her decade working in the Kelowna General Hospital’s tertiary rehabilitation ward from 2008 to 2018. She has experience helping people with many conditions including those listed below.
