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.
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.
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 MSc PT 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!
Helena (on maternity leave)
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!
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.
