Kaitlyn completed her Bachelor of Kinesiology at Brock University and her Master's of Science in Physiotherapy at McMaster University, where she received an Outstanding Achievement Award. She is a registered member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and a member of the Canadian & Ontario Physiotherapy Associations.
She has worked in outpatient clinic, acute hospital and rehabilitation settings and she is currently an intervention physiotherapist on a research study at the Hospital for SickKids. Kaitlyn has a strong interest in pediatric oncology and global child health. However, she's happy to treat and help children of all ages, diagnoses and abilities. One of her beliefs is, "I have just as much to learn from my young patients as they can learn from me." She strongly believes in family-centered care and takes the time to make sure she is implementing this approach in all of her treatment plans and goals.
When she's not at Canoe, she enjoys hiking in the Niagara region and watching football.
