Elizabeth BMR(PT), CAFCI, E3V3/Level 3 Upper & Lower, Advanced Spinal Manipulation, Kinesiotape 1-3, MacKenzie A-D, Accredited McKenzie Practitioner, Nordic Pole Walking Instructor
When I moved to Lethbridge in 1988, I originally intended to stay for only one year. It’s been a long year! Although I might miss the beauty of the Maritimes and the lakes of Manitoba, the varied landscapes around Southern Alberta more than make up for that.
Now that both my kids are driving and I'm no longer needed as "mom taxi," I enjoy walking, hiking, camping and reading. I also enjoy scrapbooking, but I have to admit, I've not done much in awhile!
Since Peak started more than 20 years ago, I have always used the best treatment options for my clients including manual therapy, acupuncture, kinesiotaping techniques, and collaborating with the other therapists to help achieve the best possible outcomes. In 2014, I received my Certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy from the McKenzie Institute of Canada and I can't be more happy with the results my patients get from this approach.
What keeps me motivated? Hearing “thank you” from happy clients! I also enjoy helping injured workers return to their job, dancers back to rehearsals or judoka back to the tatami.
Tim Education/Courses: BScPT, FCAMPT, CAFCI, MacKenzie A,B,C&D
I have been involved with the sport of speed skating most of my life. Currently, I am the Head Coach of the Lethbridge Speed Skating Association. Recently, I took up mountain biking and compete in endurance events throughout the province.
Outside of my skating life, I have a wife and four children. My wife is a teacher and my kids are involved in music and sports.
I am a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapist (FCAMPT) and certified in Medical Acupuncture (CAFCI). I enjoy treating clients who are dealing with acute or chronic pain (sprains, strains, and automobile accidents). I like to incorporate humour into my treatments and help clients understand the nature of their injury.
Tiffany MScPT, BSc(kin), Level 1, 2, 3 Upper & Lower, Kinesiotape 1&2, MacKenzie A, B&C
(Currently on Maternity Leave)
My life has revolved around snowboarding since 1993. The sport has taken me across Canada and the USA, and I have had the good fortune to ride at numerous mountains. It is the love of the sport that has brought my husband and myself to Lethbridge!
We moved to Lethbridge in 2010 and we love everything about this city. I grew up in Markham, Ontario and my education took me to Victoria (for my Bachelor’s degree) and back to Toronto (for my Masters in Physical Therapy), but I always wanted to move back west….and here I am!
I am passionate about education! I am pursuing my orthopedic levels in physiotherapy and I am currently taking French classes.
I love motivating clients, working with athletes, and helping clients get back to their best!
Walter BScPT, Cyriax (peripheral), E3/Level 3 Lower, Maitland Upper Quadrant, MacKenzie A-E
I came to Canada in 1992 and moved to Lethbridge in 1996. Initially I worked at Lethbridge Regional Hospital. I then moved to private practice and have spent the last 20 years in Lethbridge, working with a varied caseload of WCB, MVA, and private clients. I enjoy helping patients with their recovery and maximizing their potential post injury.
More recently I have been enjoying mountain biking in our local coulees. I am an occasional runner and enjoy keeping fit. I enjoy music, especially jazz guitar, as well as camping, hiking, and traveling with my family.
Morgan MScPT, BScKin, McKenzie A&B, Functional Dry Needling (Level 1), Nordic Pole Walking Instructor, Leuko Taping
Hi, I’m Morgan! I am originally from northern BC, and I have slowly migrated south over the years, until finally settling in Lethbridge. I did my Bachelor’s degree at Grande Prairie Regional College and the University of Alberta. I completed my Master’s Degree at the Augustana satellite campus in Camrose through the U of A.
Soccer is my passion! I have played since I was 4 years old. I played 2 years of college with the GPRC Wolves, premier league in Edmonton, helped start up the Augustana Viking’s team, and I continue to play competitively here in Lethbridge.
I also love the outdoors- camping, hiking, fishing- I try to get out as often as I can to do them all. I have been bitten by the travel bug and try to take at least one trip a year - most trips include lots of hiking and photography of the beautiful scenery!
I am excited to be part of the Peak Team and to help people get back to the activities and sports that they love!
Darby MScPT Intern, BScience, Manual Therapy Level 1 Upper & Lower
Hello, I’m Darby! I moved to Lethbridge in December 2016 and have been enjoying the friendly and active community here ever since. You might see me out and about running, biking, or working out at the local YMCA. I
’m a recent graduate from the University of Alberta MScPT program and enjoy helping people get back to their lives and their passions following injuries, accidents, or general deconditioning. I am very familiar with various work positions including concrete labouring, refinery work, and working in the oil sands from personal experience leading up to my master’s degree.
I am the Office Manager/Financial Coordinator at Peak Physical Therapy and I’ll be one of the two people who will greet you on the phone. I help book your appointments, work with WCB claims, MVA insurance claims, along with many other things. I also make sure all of our accounts are up to date.
I have done an extensive amount of traveling in the past. I am originally from Mexico and have been as far and wide as the Philippines, South Korea, and China. I had the opportunity to live in China for two years working with a cultural exchange company. I hope to do much more travelling in the future. I also enjoy hiking, walking, travelling, and photography.
Michelle BSc(Exercise Science), CSEP Certified Personal Trainer, Pfilates Instructor, Kinesiotape 1&2, Osteoperosis: Prevention, Treatment & Managment, McKenzie A, Nordic Pole Walking Instructor
Hi, I’m Michelle! Born and raised in Lethbridge, I attended the University of Lethbridge and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree (Exercise Science) in 2011. Shortly after, I started working at Peak, as a Kinesiologist, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time assisting the physiotherapists and working individually with clients on their exercise programs. I particularly like helping injured workers get back to their job and motivating people to persevere through their rehabilitation in order to achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals. It is so rewarding to see someone master their exercise program and re-discover a love of physical activity!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hiking, golfing, swimming, and travelling. During my travels, I have discovered a passion for water activities, including snorkelling, paddle boarding, and kayaking. On my travel bucket list is to one day snorkel the Great Barrier Reef and volunteer at a school/orphanage in Africa!
I look forward to helping you out in the gym with your personal exercise program and getting you back into “peak” shape!
I am originally from Manitoba, and I have lived in Lethbridge since 1985. My favorite activities are camping, exercising, and spending time with friends and family.
Although my official title is Physiotherapy Aid, I am also in charge of the equipment, Peak’s safety programs and training the new staff. I do my best to keep everyone on time and organized, and make sure our team is the best in Lethbridge!
My time at Peak Physical Therapy has evolved from studying knee injuries during an Applied Study through the University of Lethbridge in 2010 into working full time as an Exercise Therapist and Personal Trainer. I played on the U of L Women’s Soccer Team and graduated as a captain in 2012 for my last season. I have my BSc. in Exercise Science and am certified through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiologists as a personal trainer.
My passion for the outdoors and running has taken me into the sport of ultra marathons, where long runs out in the elements is where I feel at home. I am working towards my second ultra in July 2014. My love for people and training has taken me into Personal Training/Coaching as an Independent Contractor. Whether it's training for a race or general fitness to transformations, building a personal rapport and positively pushing and coaching people to achieve these goals has been extremely rewarding.When I am not training, I am spending time in the mountains with my husband skiing, hiking, rock climbing, and camping. I also enjoy volunteering with Strees Alive in Lethbridge and staying involved with community. The team atmosphere at Peak allows me to work with a wide spectrum of patients, and I enjoy working with anyone who has a positive attitude and zest for life!
I was brought up playing pretty much every sport I could with the exception of Hockey (weird, I know). However, I found my niche when I discovered Volleyball at age 10. I played Volleyball all through grade school including club and provincial teams. In my grade 12 year our team managed a 59-0 record playing top teams in Canada and Norway. For those accomplishments we were inducted into the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. I continued on to play in the ACAC with both the Briercrest Clippers and Lethbridge College Kodiaks. Today, I continue to play recreationally in the Lethbridge Coed Volleyball League. I also enjoy playing tennis now in the summers and have recently started snowboarding over the winter season.
I am excited to be a new member of the Peak Physical Therapy team and look forward to learning more in my field.
