Victoria is a bilingual physiotherapist native to Halifax. She pursued studies in Quebec to preserve her second language of French, earning a Bachelor of Science with a specialization in Clinical Exercise Physiology at Concordia University in 2007 and a Master of Physiotherapy at McGill University in 2013 while playing varsity rugby.
She also has partially completed a professional Diploma in Osteopathy at the Collège D’études Ostéopathiques du Canada. After working at a busy sports medicine clinic in Ottawa, Victoria has returned to her Maritime roots to join the Lifemark team and raise her young family.
Victoria’s treatment philosophy revolves around empowering the patient to take an active approach to their rehab goals and treatment, through personalized therapeutic exercise, hands-on manual therapy, dry needling and education. Her areas of interest are sports orthopedics and pelvic health. She is a member of the Women’s Health and Orthopaedic divisions of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
Committed to lifelong learning, she has taken a number of special interest courses including manual therapy, sports taping, pelvic floor re-education (male and female), dry needling, acupuncture, selective functional movement assessment, functional movement screen, trends in prevention of running injuries, and concussion management.
Victoria has always been an active individual who aims to incorporate movement into all aspects of her life. Outside of work, she enjoys circus arts (pole/hoop/acro), swimming, biking (road/mountain), yoga, weight training and running with her dog and/or baby.
