Amélie is a physiotherapist who grew up in a small town in Northern Quebec. She spent her time on the skating rinks as a competitive as well as recreational figure skater, before moving to Montreal to study.
She graduated from University of Montreal with a Bachelor of Sciences in Psychology in 2014. During those years of study, she explored the world as an exchange student in Seoul, as well as for the pure joy of discovering and understanding different cultures. Her travels brought her to Asia, South America and Europe. She then moved to Ottawa to complete a second degree in Medical Sciences where she was involved in the Emergency Student Response Team, assisting the University campus with any medical and pre-hospital emergency care.
In 2018 she started her master’s degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa with the objective to continue providing quality care to her community. She got a broad range of experiences from orthopedics to acute hospital care, but her passion resides in manual therapy, concussion and vestibular rehabilitation. She challenged the first level of Manual Therapy specialization in December 2020, the first step into the speciality. In addition to providing evidence-based care, she focuses on a client-centered approach to facilitate recovery with individualized treatments.
In life, her passions are figure skating, climbing, hiking, travelling, and spending time with her family.
