Allison is originally from Kingston, Ontario. She played many sports competitively, but excelled in Ice Hockey and Rowing. Continuing her athletic pursuits, she attended the University of Guelph and attained her Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics. She learned extensively about biomechanics, anatomy and physiology, which she now uses as the cornerstones of her practice.
At Guelph, she was a member of the Varsity Women’s Rowing Crew, as well as a student trainer for the Varsity Men’s Rugby and Basketball teams. Her love of sports and experience in treating acute injuries steered her toward physiotherapy.
Allison has a Masters in Physical Therapy from Queen’s University. Since graduating, she has continued to pursue knowledge through Orthopedic Manual Therapy, Acupuncture and other specialized courses. Allison uses manual therapy, exercise prescription and education as the basis of her treatment.
Allison is a new resident of Whistler but is no stranger to the atmosphere. She can be found on the mountain: hiking, biking and skiing when she is not in the clinic.
