As an orthopaedic therapist Liz successfully treats a variety of injuries including both acute and chronic sports injuries. As a pelvic health physiotherapist Liz integrates her orthopaedic skills to treat pelvic pain including postpartum pelvic pain, incontinence, dyspareunia as well as diastasis rectus. Her treatment style includes using a manual hands-on approach as well as acupuncture, instrument assisted mobilization, kinesiology tape and personal exercise programs. This approach to treatment addresses the underlying dysfunction that may be causing injury and prevents future re-injury. She believes in a patient centered approach; by directly involving each patient in their recovery through goal setting, balancing muscle dysfunction and teaching self-management techniques for optimal recovery.

Since 2009 she has been a clinical lab facilitator and clinical supervisor at the University of Toronto.

She is also proud to be an instructor for Rock Tape Canada. In her time outside of the clinic she is a loving and proud mother. She stays active by running, having completed a few marathons and numerous ½ marathons. She also lifts weights, bikes, and practice Pilates. When not working out she enjoys cooking and gardening.
