I joined Physio Plantagenet in May 2021. I obtained my Masters in Physiotherapy from the University of Sherbrooke in 2015. During this program, I completed six placements in a variety of clinics with the most notable being at Foyer Saint-Camille in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 2014. There, I had the opportunity to participate in the creation of a rehabilitation program in a hospital where no physiotherapy services were offered.

In 2015, I began my practice in the private sector of Gatineau, joining the Montclair Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre. It was at this clinic that, thanks in part to the collaboration of occupational therapy colleagues, I learned to treat clients in a rehabilitation context. The following year, inspired once again by my love for travel, I found myself headed to Turin, Italy, where I settled for close to 4 years. Through a diversity of experiences, I was able to discover the foundations of the Italian health system. I dedicated much time assisting others through volunteer work with the Italian Red Cross as a Volunteer Paramedic. Additionally, I worked as a Physiotherapist for a number of care facilities, such as the Chiros Medical Centre situated in the heart of Turin. Among other things, I discovered Hunova, a multifunctional platform adapted to the rehabilitation of equilibrium situated in Gênes, Italy.

In January 2020, I returned to Canada, working once again for the Montclair Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centre. I received further training in ergonomical assessments for work stations as well as functional and work capacity assessments. In May 2021, I decided to change clinics and the obvious choice was Physio Plantagenet, the clinic whose billboard I’d seen countless times along the Highway 17, a clinic which conveys the feeling of both family and community.
