Maggie studied her undergraduate degree at UBC in Kinesiology and Health Sciences, after which she worked as a clinical kinesiologist for one year before moving to Glasgow, Scotland to do her Masters of Physiotherapy.

Maggie grew up playing competitive volleyball and running track and cross country and has completed two half marathons (coming 2nd in her age group) and a triathlon. Maggie also loves backpacking and hiking in the mountains, and has recently taken up mountain biking to spend even more time in the outdoors.

Maggie is eager to treat anyone looking to get back to their normal physical activities by fostering a welcoming and relaxing environment for her patients to feel comfortable with discussing their issues and goals.

Maggie has an interest in treating the pelvic floor, runners, and endurance athletes, and has experience working with triathletes and Ironman athletes from novice to professional.
