Cara grew up figure skating competitively in her hometown of Peace River, AB. This led her to seek chiropractic care at a young age. Needless to say, she fell in love instantly. She decided then that she too wanted to help young aspiring athletes like herself to stay healthy and pain free.
Upon graduating high school Cara received her Bachelor of Science with specialization in cell biology from the University of Alberta. During her years spent at the University, she worked as a research assistant in a neuroprostheses and rehabilitation laboratory. Her work on pressure ulcers under the supervision of Dr. Vivian Mushahwar was published in three different scientific journals.
She then attended the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon where she graduated summa cum laude. Upon graduating, Cara practiced in Lake Oswego, OR where she specialized in the treatment of disc herniations. Cara sustained this specific injury herself which has given her a unique perspective in its treatment and rehabilitation. Although disc herniations are her specialty and personal interest, Cara has experience treating a wide range of conditions and patients of all ages.
Cara has taken additional training in pediatrics and the Webster technique allowing her to treat children and pregnant women with better precision and expertise, modifying her technique to tailor to this specific patient subset.
While out of the office,Cara enjoys spending time with family & friends, practicing yoga, working out, golfing, snowboarding, and cooking healthy and nutritious meals. She believes in a healthy body and mind and approaches her patient care in the same way.
Cara is excited to be the newest member of Lifemark Physiotherapy and is eager to help her patients get active, perform better, and live pain free.
