My name is Hilary, and I am a registered physiotherapist treating clients in Calgary, AB. I have always had a desire to help others and truly feel that I am fulfilling my passion in my career. Through a personal back injury, I have learnt the importance of an individualized and holistic approach to treatment. I incorporate physiotherapy techniques, postural correction, functional exercise, and education in my rehabilitation with the goals of restoring function and preventing recurrence.

I first completed my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. Following a move out west to Calgary I attended the University of Alberta in Edmonton where I obtained my Masters of Science in Physical Therapy. Since graduating I have continued to advance my leaning and skills through post graduate courses in pelvic floor rehabilitation, advanced manual therapy, acupuncture, Active Release Technique, and taping.

I have worked in private practice settings since graduating and enjoy treating a wide variety of conditions, whether you have injured yourself in a motor vehicle accident, at work, playing sports, with pregnancy and delivery or during your day-to-day activities.


Let me help you get back to doing what you love!



Hilary has helped me immensely over the past 4 years with various problems. 


Most recently Hilary has helped me through a chronic back issue that I am thrilled to say I no longer have.  Hilary is warm, compassionate, and incredibly knowledgeable. Through a detailed assessment, great hands on treatments that include manual therapy, active release technique, acupuncture, and specific exercise prescription, I am now pain free. 


Being a physiotherapist myself it is sometimes hard to find another practitioner who has long appointment times and can treat 1 on 1. Hilary takes the time, which means better treatments, better exercise prescription, and faster results. 


Don't waste your time and money at a big box clinic where a therapist is seeing 4 people at the same time. This is the way physio needs to be!
