Originally, Erin aspired to be a biomedical engineer designing prosthetic organs. However, while helping her significant other recover from a sports injury which almost paralyzed him, Erin recognized a career pivot was needed. She realized she needed a career which aligned with her core values and beliefs – helping others to live their best lives directly rather than prolonging lives indirectly. To achieve her career aspirations, Erin obtained a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Neuropsychology from UFV as well as a Master’s in Physiotherapy and MBA from the University of Alberta. In addition to treating patients, Erin plans to sit on boards of healthcare corporations to help improve Canadians’ experiences with the rehabilitation medical system. She also plans on developing and teaching post-graduate courses on chronic fatigue and complex pain.
From a clinical perspective, Erin enjoys treating a wide spectrum of patients. In addition to the everyday individual with aches, breaks, or injuries, Erin has a passion for helping people who are experiencing chronic fatigue, chronic pain, neurological disorders, concussions, and vestibular issues. Knowing firsthand what it is like to live with a chronic, debilitating condition, Erin is committed to working with patients and their support system to develop a specific treatment to go from surviving to thriving. With a rich athletic history in Tae Kwon Do, motocross, and track and field, Erin is also an excellent resource for athletes wanting to prevent or recover from sports injuries as well as those looking to improve their strength, endurance, power, or agility.
In her spare time, Erin enjoys hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, dirt biking, martial arts, and traveling. On rainy days, Erin can be found curled up with a cup of tea and a book or playing piano. During your appointment, please share your outdoor adventures, must read book list, or the latest song you enjoy listening to!
