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 25 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 BScPT, FCAMPT, CAFCI, MacKenzie A,B,C&D, Kinesiotape
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.
Jessi MSc PT, BSc Exercise Science
Hi, I’m Jessi and I’m new! I was born and raised in southern Alberta. I started my degree in exercise science at Medicine Hat College where I dabbled in ACAC women’s volleyball. From there, I moved to Lethbridge to finish my degree at the U of L. I then moved up north to complete my MScPT at U of A.
Being from a small town in southern Alberta, there wasn’t a ton to do except “sport”. I played volleyball, slo-pitch, basketball, hockey, badminton, and track and field. I still enjoy playing recreational slo-pitch throughout the summer and continue to stay as active as I can whether it be playing beach volleyball, going to the gym or hitting up a court to play some sports.
I enjoy maintaining an active lifestyle and am known to be a bit of an animal-person. Our house is chaotic with four animals but I wouldn’t mind adding another dog or two to our fur-family!
I am passionate about educating clients. Knowledge is power and understanding your injury is the first step in the rehabilitation process.
I am so excited to start my career as a new graduate PT here at Peak and I can’t wait to meet you!
(Jessi is going to be on mat. leave after August 21. )
Oyin B.Physiotherapy, M.SC Orthopeadics and Sports (PT)
Hi, I’m Oyin! I am from Nigeria where I got my Degrees (both Bachelor and Masters) in Physiotherapy. I practised as a clinical physiotherapist for over 4 years before relocating to Canada to join my husband in 2016. Life in Canada if I must say has been interesting but for the cold!
I enjoy walking, listening to music and visiting new places. I also love to sew! But I must confess its been a while I did that because I’ve been a busy mom to a set of twins and a toddler.
I know I made the right choice of being a physiotherapist because I learn new things about the human body everyday and also, I’m able to help people feel better by taking their pain away.
I’m really excited to continue with my career as a physiotherapist here in Canada and would love to meet you!!
Matt MSc Physical Therapy, BSc Kinesiology
Hi, i'm Matt! Originally from Northern BC, I moved to Lethbridge where I attended the UofL and completed my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. I moved to Edmonton to attend the University of Alberta for my Master of Science in Physical Therapy and have recently moved back to Lethbridge with my wife and 3 young kids to enjoy the beauties of southern Alberta and be closer to family.
Playing sports and being active is what I've always loved to do! Baseball, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, weight lifting, running, biking, and badminton have always kept me busy. My latest pursuit in sports has been coaching. Last year I helped coach my sons U4 soccer team and have plans to help coach his U5 lacrosse team this year.
I find it so rewarding to help people reach their goals! I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you in your rehabilitation journey!
(Matt is on leave right now (working full time at St. Michael’s hospital)- we’re hoping to bring him back soon.)
Leeju (Lee) BScPT; MScPT(Cardiorespiratory)
Hi, I’m Lee!
I was born and raised in Dubai, U.A.E; Completed my Bachelor and Masters degree in Physical Therapy from India; Lived in London, England for nearly 4 years; Moved to Toronto, Canada, where I joined the Physical Therapy Bridging Program at the University of Toronto; Finally, moved to Lethbridge, in 2016, to be closer to my family.
In my spare time, I enjoy art/painting, music, travelling, visiting historical sites and learning about local cultures and traditions. Above all, dancing- Yes, dancing is my greatest passion, ever since I was a child- be it classical to contemporary or Bollywood to ballroom.
As I continue my journey working at Peak, as a Phyical Therapist, I love being able to make a difference in people’s lives, in our community. I have seen first-hand the remarkable impact physical therapy can have on a person’s life. To me, helping clients become stronger means empowering them with the knowledge and confidence to take control of their injury or disease and ultimately their life.
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!
Hi I'm Chris! I recently graduated from the University of Lethbridge receiving my BSc in Kinesiology in the spring of 2020. I enjoy inspiring people and helping them reach their personal goals while educating them about the reasoning behind treatments. My long term goal is to become a physiotherapist and continue to help people. I have been involved in Judo for 18 years and made the national team in 2016 before retiring from competitions in 2018. Now, I enjoy doing Judo, playing tennis, dirt biking, ski-dooing, and jet boating in my spare time.
Gui BSc Kinesiology; Nordic Pole Walking Certified Instructor; Concussion Assessment Certified; Leuko-K Tape 1&2
Hey, I'm Gui! I am from Brazil, where I got my bachelors of Science degree in Physical Education. Moved to Canada in 2010, and after living 8 months in Vancouver, I picked University of Lethbridge to get my second Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology. The great thing about this, is that I learned to understand the human body functionality through a different perspective. Having to study, work, I also played soccer for the Pronghorns, it was an amazing and joyful experience, but really really mentally and physically exhausting. During my time at UofL I met my, now, wife, who is also from Brazil (funny eh!?). I have great respect for physiotherapists, because of their knowledge and understanding of the body, it's amazing to see how everything is connected.
I am extremely passionate about exercise, food, life and getting connecting with people. You will also notice that I love my family and friends, and will value friendship above other things.
