Leah graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with distinction in 2010, and went on to complete her Masters Degree in Physiotherapy in 2012. After working with a varied caseload in private practice for a few years, Leah developed a special interest in Women's Health including working with pregnant and post-partum clients.
In 2014, Leah relocated to Brisbane, Australia, where she had an opportunity to further her interest and training in Pilates, rehabilitative exercise and Women’s Health. Here, she gained experience treating a variety of conditions including: Pelvic girdle pain, urinary incontinence and urgency, and low back pain. Following her return to Canada she has completed post graduate training to treat fecal incontinence, painful intercourse and has added Hypopressive training to her repertoire.
Leah is passionate about spreading the word about Women’s health, and helping her patients to reach their goals. She utilities a whole body approach in her treatment philosophy, with a strong focus on manual therapy, integrated dry needling, and functional exercise to improve core and pelvic girdle strength to prevent future dysfunction. Her pelvic health practice is enhanced with her Clinical Pilates sessions and small group classes on Wednesday evenings.
Outside of the clinic Leah enjoys running, hiking and spending time with her husband and daughter.
