Christine took a different path to physiotherapy that has provided a broad foundation and many opportunities to develop her skills. She received a Bachelor of Arts Joint Major with Distinction in Religious Studies and Economics from St. Francis Xavier University and completed courses in Kinesiology with a focus in biomechanics at the University of Calgary. Christine has been a yoga teacher since 2011, and it was through a desire to provide better care and to expand her scope of practice that Christine chose to obtain a Master of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta.

Over the years, Christine has received training in movement modalities such as Restorative Exercise (certified through Nutritious Movement®), Foundation Training, and numerous workshops and trainings within the yoga community.

Christine has been interested in working in women’s health for many years and developed an interest in providing support to both mothers and infants following a placement at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. When she discovered that Vida Health & Wellness was already providing this type of support, she knew she needed to train with Mercedes in breastfeeding support and pelvic health and was able to complete her final student placement at Vida Health and Wellness.

Christine is currently pursuing advanced courses in pelvic health and chronic pain and will be expanding her skillset to work with people impacted by cancer and gastrointestinal diagnoses and treatment.

Christine is especially interested in the intersections of society, culture, belief and perspectives about the human body, health, and sexuality. She provides a safe space for people to learn about their bodies and health while seeking to understand and help them begin or get back to the activities that are meaningful to them.

Outside her clinical roles, Christine is a watercolour artist, enjoys tea with friends, and loves to walk the paths of Calgary and the surrounding area.
