Shannon earned a Master of Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia. Prior to this, she completed a Master of Science looking at the neural control of posture and movement and specifically how fear of falling, anxiety, and autonomic arousal affect the vestibular system. Shannon is a lifelong learner who cannot get enough of school. Along with working as a physiotherapist, Shannon is currently completing her PhD in Neurorehabilitation and is investigating how the brain changes during recovery of walking after a stroke.
Shannon is also a clinical skills assistant in the UBC Physical Therapy Program and is the vice-chair of the BC Neurosciences Division. She has worked with a variety of neurological populations of all ages and believes that rehabilitation should always be fun and enjoyable. She has certifications as a sports first responder and has taken advanced courses in vestibular rehabilitation. She encourages her clients to achieve an active lifestyle by doing activities they love.
Outside of work and reading research articles, Shannon loves to be outdoors in the wilderness. She can often be found climbing a rock or mountain. When her feet are on flat ground, Shannon also plays ultimate frisbee, runs, paints, and bakes a lot of cookies.
