Mary-Catherine obtained her Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from the University of Ottawa in 1993, and went on to complete her M.Sc. in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Toronto in 2005. She has devoted countless weekends to pursuing continuing education, including manual therapy courses, McKenzie courses, and medical exercise therapy. She has had the privilege of being taught by the giants in the physiotherapy profession, including Wendy Aspinall, Jim Meadows, Diane Lee, Lyn Watson and many others. MC has recently completed the courses in Functional Anatomy and Functional Range Conditioning.

Mary-Catherine has always had a love of dance and from that passion came a need to know more about human anatomy. She has over 20 years experience treating orthopedic injuries in a variety of clinical settings. She wants to help patients regain their mobility and have the freedom to move without pain. She understands that each patient has unique goals to meet and she works on individual treatment programs to achieve those goals. She approaches injury care and prevention with the latest research based in the science of the human body.

She has a special interest in orthopedic and sports injuries, including post-surgical rehabilitation. Nothing makes her happier than allowing someone to return to activities that they previously thought wasn’t achievable. When Mary-Catherine isn’t with a patient, she is running or working with weights or joining a yoga class. She is also known to walk long distances internationally with her walking group, the Herd of Turtles.
