About

Kacy graduated with a Master of Sciences in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta. Prior to pursuing physical therapy, she received a Bacherlor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Calgary. She is committed to continued professional development to expand her knowledge base and grow her practice. She is particularly interested in manual therapy/orthopaedic courses, intramuscular stimulation, vestibular therapy, and concussion courses.

Kacy has worked with a variety of patients and is particularly interested in cancer rehabilitation. Through her time volunteering with the Thrive Centre at the University of Calgary and working at the Edmonton Cancer Rehab Clinic, she has seen first hand the positive impact physical therapy can have on an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Kacy focuses on tailoring programs to ensure a holistic approach is taken to help patients meet their goals and return to the activities they enjoy. She believes a balanced program of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and education will provide her patients with the support needed during recovery, and the rest of their lives.

Outside the clinic, Kacy enjoys weightlifting, travelling, and spending time with her family and friends outdoors, or with a cup of tea. Kacy is a lifelong athlete and competed for the Dinos varsity wrestling team.
