Registered Physiotherapist / Director
Stephanie graduated from the physiotherapy program at the University of Toronto in 1992. She started her career in a hospital setting where she worked for five years in a variety of clinical areas including paediatrics, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, intensive care, acute neurology, cardiorespirology and orthopedics. Stephanie spent one year working in inpatient neurological rehabilitation prior to leaving the hospital, and one year providing community care physiotherapy, paediatric and school services for the Home Care Program of Waterloo Region (now the CCAC).
In 1996 Stephanie co-founded Pathways Therapy (then Active Home Rehab) and began providing private therapy in the community as well as carrying out administrative responsibilities. At Pathways Therapy Stephanie has developed clinical expertise in the treatment of adults and children who have experienced a neurological illness or injury.
In addition, Stephanie has an avid interest in horseback riding leading to her involvement in hippotherapy, or the use of horses as a physiotherapy treatment modality. Her primary interest is in the treatment of adults and children who have suffered neurological impairment. Stephanie continues her education by participating in ongoing Bobath training at an advanced level. She completed a Masters level Bobath course under Mary Lynch-Ellerington in 2011. Stephanie has sought out further learning opportunities by spending time with clinical mentors both in Canada and in the UK.
