About

Julia graduated with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2014. She completed her certificate from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute training in 2016 and incorporates acupuncture, when appropriate, as an effective treatment strategy. Prior to graduation, Julia played competitive soccer from a young age, and her interest in sport, health, and the human body led her to pursue her undergraduate degree. In 2010, Julia graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor in Kinesiology.

Throughout her undergraduate education Julia’s interest in physiotherapy peaked as she became more interested in anatomy and rehabilitation. In addition, Julia’s passion for soccer led to her own significant knee injuries, and as she saw teammates and opponents fall to injury, she became increasingly aware of the importance of appropriate rehabilitation and physiotherapy interventions.

Julia continues to pursue further manual therapy skills via post-graduate education through the Orthopedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. Julia remains active with the University of Alberta community, by acting as a standardized patient and an evaluator for training and practical exams.

Julia treats a wide variety of patients, and looks forward to guiding you through your rehabilitation.
