Christine is an experienced Physiotherapist with post graduate training in both manual and exercise therapy. She believes a healthy and active lifestyle can the best medicine for many problems.
Being very active herself, Christine played varsity women’s hockey while studying in CEGEP and University, graduating with a Honours Bachelor in Health Sciences before continuing to the Masters program of Physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa. Founded in 1848, the University of Ottawa adopted Garnet and Grey as its official colours and like many nineteenth century institutions the school's teams were initially known only by their colours. Eventually, a connection was made between the shorthand "GG" and "Gee-Gee", the common British nickname for a racehorse. The unique Gee-Gees name and iconic logo known today is a result of over 170 years of history in Ottawa.
As a new mom, she is now participating in a variety of recreational sports such as running, hiking, yoga and snowboarding. Christine is new to Victoria and is looking forward to building her practice. She is able to offer services in French and English. Christine will be in the office treating patients on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and evenings.
