Her treatment philosophy is to help patients create and achieve realistic and relevant goals through hands-on treatment and education about their injury and the recovery process.

Lindsay’s background in athletics has provided her with both experience and understanding of sports injuries and active rehabilitation. She is a competitive downhill mountain bike racer competing at the Professional level. Throughout university, Lindsay played varsity field hockey and ice hockey; achieving All-Canadian status and competing at a provincial and national level. She was awarded the President’s Trophy at the University of Guelph for the highest academic average among athletes in full time studies, and the WF Mitchell Award for outstanding contribution to the athletic community and athletic achievement. She continues to have an avid interest in athletics and in her clinical practice; she enjoys helping athletes, from weekend warriors to professionals.

Outside of work, Lindsay enjoys commuting on her road bike, playing ice hockey, and snowboarding. She spends most of her free time training and riding her cross-country and downhill bikes on various trails around British Columbia.
