Physiotherapist / Hand Therapist
Jodi graduated from the University of Alberta in 1999 with a degree in Physical Therapy.
She worked in briefly in Vancouver and later in Australia.
In 2001 she was asked to spend 3-weeks in Nelson to cover another practitioner’s vacation. She never left. She had become hooked on the people, the mountain biking, skiing, hiking, the coffee, and many other aspects of the West Kootenay lifestyle.
In the past Jodi has worked with a variety of orthopedic conditions, but she increasingly found herself drawn to people with hand and arm injuries. In 2006 she became a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) and henceforth has focused her practice solely on upper extremity injuries. This has allowed Jodi to deepen her understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics and functional implications of dysfunction in the upper body.
In 2010 Jodi began studying Neural Mobilization through the Barral Institute and she continues to study and integrate this profound work into her practice.
Jodi is passionate about physiotherapy. Her goal is to support individuals in their healing, while creating the right conditions for the body to recover from injury or disease in its own unique way.
When not at the clinic, she and her husband can be found somewhere outdoors, enjoying (or at least trying to enjoy) their 3 young children. These days Jodi can be more commonly found in playgrounds rather than on mountain bike trails.
