Lindsay loves her work! A tireless and enthusiastic professional, Lindsay enjoys spending her time between treating patients, writing and giving lectures on rehabilitation, and managing clinical direction and patient satisfaction at Toronto Physiotherapy. The patient-first philosophy and engaging feel of our clinics is a direct reflection of Lindsay’s own relentless personal drive to offer exceptional value to her patients (and non-patients) at every interaction. Focusing on patients rather than profits has freed Lindsay to prioritize patient satisfaction and health outcomes, develop an exceptional team, and enjoy a deep personal reward from her work.
Lindsay is dedicated to evidence-based rehabilitation practices and maintaining the highest standard of care for her clients and clinics. She is an avid reader and writer on rehabilitation topics, and contributor to primary research (recently: “The Cardiac Rehabilitation Model Improves Fitness, Quality of Life, and Depression in Breast Cancer Survivors” J Cardiopulm Rehab Prev. EPub 2017 May 18).
Lindsay graduated from the University of Toronto with a Masters degree in Physical Therapy. She received the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Award for obtaining the highest academic and clinical standing among her peers, and was the valedictorian of her graduating class. Prior to entering Physical Therapy, Lindsay obtained a Masters degree in Medical Biophysics, for her work in cancer research at the Ontario Cancer Institute and Princess Margaret Hospital. Lindsay is certified in Combined Decongestive Therapy, providing the highly specialized treatment technique of Manual Lymphatic Drainage. She is a regular invited speaker at several cancer related support groups in the city, including Toronto Rehabilitation Institute’s Breast HEALTH program, Sunnybrook Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, the Canadian Cancer Society, Wellspring, and Gilda’s Club. Lindsay has also received advanced training in manual orthopedic therapy and is fully certified by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute.
Lindsay has been affiliated with the University of Toronto’s Physical Therapy program for several years, as a guest lecturer, clinical reasoning tutor, clinical internship instructor, and past member of the Clinical Education Advisory Committee, and peer coach. In her spare time Lindsay enjoys spending time with her family, engaging in wide variety of exercise classes and routines, and enjoying any chance she can get to go for a run or bike ride.
