About me

Tracy has been an active physiotherapist in the Vancouver community for over 25 years.  She helped open and run clinics such as Seva, Salus and Balance Physiotherapy, but has opted to step out of the ownership role and focus on her clinical practice by joining  Envision Physiotherapy.  Tracy holds a postgraduate diploma in Advanced Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMT) and trained under Dr. Chan Gunn to be a licensed Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) practitioner.

Tracy has worked as a physiotherapist for the National Ballet of Canada, Vancouver rugby teams, the BC Winter games, Vancouver Marathons, multiple Sun Runs and for a number of junior elite golfers.  She also enjoys being involved in education and mentorship and works part-time as a clinical skills assistant and adjunct clinical professor in the Masters’ physiotherapy program at the University of British Columbia. 

Tracy has been involved in sports all her life and continues to enjoy a variety of activities, including squash, tennis, golf and running as well as being a regular in the gym.

“I strongly believe that maintaining an active lifestyle is a major contributor to our long-term health and happiness. As a keen recreational athlete, and having had my own fair share of significant injuries I can empathize with the pain and the frustration that goes along with this. When injury, pain or illness, limit our ability to move well, our health is compromised. That’s why physiotherapy is an integral part of healthcare and my main goal is to help guide you back to the activities you enjoy and that keep you healthy.”
