Kerra is the Clinic Director of Academy Place. She is a manual and manipulative orthopedic (ie. muscle and joint) physical therapist who is also trained in vestibular and concussion rehabilitation. She enjoys treating a variety of individuals, regardless if they are high-level athletes, “weekend warriors”, or someone injured from their daily life.
Kerra graduated from the Master of Science Physical Therapy program at the University of Alberta in 2010. Since then, she has completed post-graduate training in Medical & Traditional Chinese Acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI), Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) at the University of British Columbia, Prevention of Running Injuries in South Africa, Cancer CARE, and Introduction to Chronic Disease Management.
Combining her passion for travelling and philanthropy, in August of 2014, Kerra spent 7 months volunteering as a Physical Therapist in Botswana and later on, as a Clinic Director in Tanzania. After working with influential clinicians overseas she was driven to advance her manual therapy skills. In 2021, she completed her Masters of Clinical Science in Comprehensive Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (MClSc-CMP) at the University of Western Ontario, where she become a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). This designation allows her to perform advanced manual therapy assessment and treatment techniques including spinal and peripheral joint manipulation (ie. muscle and joint treatment).
Kerra treats individuals with both Vestibular dysfunctions (ie. balance and dizziness conditions of the inner ear) and concussion disorders. In 2015, she completed an international competency certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation through Emory and Duke University. She then went on to complete her advanced Vestibular training in New York City in 2017. In 2021, she became the lead Vestibular Instructor for Western University’s MClSc-CMP program. Over the years she has taken extensive concussion education. Recently, in 2020, she completed advanced training with the Complete Concussion Management Institute (CCMI).
Outside of the clinic, Kerra enjoys travelling the world and hitting the Rocky Mountains to hike, whitewater kayak, and snowboard. This season, she is excited to work as a physio for the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team. Year-round her“ go-to” activities in Edmonton are boxing, hitting the gym, slowing it down with some yoga, and spending time with her family.
