Founder & Registered Physiotherapist
Cheryl graduated from Queen’s University Physical Therapy Program and holds an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto.

After taking 6 months to travel, Cheryl pursued her passion by moving to Toronto to focus on neurological rehabilitation.
Cheryl joined a private clinic where she worked solely with individuals with neurological impairments in a variety of age groups. She obtained training and gained skills in myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, basic acupuncture, and the Bobath Concept. Cheryl honed her skills in neurological physiotherapy by working with her mentor and taking courses in advanced and masters level Bobath Concept. She has successfully worked with individuals who have experienced complex musculoskeletal and neurological injury or illness, including but not exclusive to brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy.
Cheryl has extensive experience working with motor vehicle accident insurance, lawyers and multidisciplinary teams. She feels strongly that it is essential to maintain strong lines of communication between members of an individuals rehabilitation team to optimize recovery.
