Krista is passionate about fitness and sports, specifically running and soccer, because they have always been part of her lifestyle. She truly believes an active body supports longevity and overall life satisfaction. Krista has a special interest in sports and orthopaedic injuries in all levels of sports and fitness participation. Her treatment approaches include manual therapy, soft tissue release, and exercise prescription. Krista was a 2015 Toronto medical volunteer for the Pan American games, treating a variety of sports injuries and athletes in the Athletes Village medical centre. She enjoyed the games’ environment and working with fellow professionals in a volunteer capacity.
If not at the gym, on the soccer field, or enjoying a good book, you may find Krista walking her Maltese-yorkie mix dog along the waterfront. Having a dog that required physiotherapy, and being an animal lover, she has a growing interest in canine rehab!
