Jenny completed her Master of Physical Therapy and Bachelor of Science at the University of British Columbia. As a motivated learner, Jenny has completed post-graduation courses including STOTT Rehab Matwork Pilates, functional dry needling/IMS, and other various soft tissue and mobilization courses. She also has completed her Level 1 certification under the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Orthopedic division with plans to complete further levels of the Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy diploma.

The human body is an efficient and well constructed machine. Our brain is the control center that manages the complex interaction of all our body systems (neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory) to make us who we are. However like any machine, our bodies can experience wear from injuries or lack of self-care. Jenny finds it important to look at the body and its systems as a whole. By using a combination of manual therapy, exercise, and education, she aims to empower clients by giving them the tools to take charge of their own care.

Outside of the clinic, Jenny enjoys traveling, volleyball, basketball, hiking, and snowboarding.
