Born and raised in Victoria, Faraley Vander Schilden graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology in 2006, and then attended Queen’s University graduating in 2009 with a Master’s of Physical Therapy. During her time at UVIC, she was a varsity rower, winning three Canadian Championships, multiple golds at the Royal Canadian Henley, a place on the Canadian Junior National team in 2000, and 3rd place at the 2004 World U-23 Championships in Poland. After graduation, Faraley spent two seasons as the Lead Physiotherapist with the Oak Bay Castaway Wanderers Rugby Club. Faraley received her Diploma of Advanced Manual and Manipulative Therapy in 2014, as well as her certification in Chan Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (CGIMS) in 2015. She believes in providing patients with an in-depth understanding as to the nature of their injury, as well as the treatment choices she makes. This helps to augment her predominantly manual therapy and IMS-based treatment approach.
