Alex grew up in Rideau Lakes before attending the University of Ottawa to complete an Honours Bachelor of Health Science (2014) degree. She then moved to pursue her Master of Science in Physical Therapy (2016) at the University of Toronto before returning to rural living to begin practice.
As a student, Alex completed intensive clinical internships in sports medicine, private orthopaedic practice, private neurological rehab, and acute cardiorespiratory, neurological and orthopaedic care. Since graduation, she has worked at both the Carleton Place and Perth locations of Back on Track treating individuals of all ages with a wide variety of orthopedic presentations. In addition to staying up to date on relevant research, Alex has continued her learning by taking a number of post-graduate courses in manual and manipulative therapy (2016-2019), acupuncture (2017, 2018), dry needling (2019), concussions (2020) and soft tissue release (2016).
When not at work, Alex prefers to be outdoors: hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, camping, skiing, spending time with family and friends.
Alex is interested in helping patients succeed in achieving their goals by creating individualized evidence-based treatment plans that utilize a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription and education.
