Amy graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Therapy in 1989. Having grown up in Medicine Hat, Alberta, she returned there after graduation and quickly embraced the opportunity to move into private practice. With her husband, Ernie, they raised three children. The family enjoys maintaining an active lifestyle, traveling, and contributing to the Medicine Hat community. Sports were a regular part of Amy’s life starting in secondary school, and she continues to enjoy recreational swimming, volleyball, golf, tennis, biking, yoga, and running. 

From the beginning, Amy was driven both by the desire to alleviate and correct peoples’ experiences with pain, and by the belief that meaningful and functional activities of living are restorable.

Amy completed several postgraduate courses to support this goal. Namely:

  • Cyriax – Orthopaedic Medicine 
  • McKenzie – Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy 
  • Anatomical Acupuncture, and 
  • Gunn IMS
  • Most recently, Amy completed The Thoracic Ring Approach™ and
  • The ConnectTherapy™ Series with Dr. LJ Lee.

The Connect Therapy™ approach looks at the body as a whole in order to determine the “driver” or root of the problem causing dysfunction and symptoms of pain. Treatment aims at correcting the “driver” thereby creating more options for movement and restoring function. Lasting results are promoted by equipping the client with tools for self-management long after the completion of treatment.  

Amy’s combined skillset, experience, and philosophy are the primary ways by which she is able to effectively seek to understand and meet each individual’s needs in their pursuit of healthy living.
