Julie is the clinic owner at Fundamentals Physiotherapy. In 2019, she had a vision of a multidisciplinary clinic that placed an emphasis on building critical relationships with their patients.
Where she believes she is different is that she’s been a patient before. Her rehab has included recovery from a fractured tibia, rotator cuff tear, SI joint instability and pelvic health concerns. She is a uniquely positive and empathetic individual that shows true care and concern for her patients and the community.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of New Brunswick in 2004, she headed to Western University in London, ON where she completed her Masters in Physiotherapy in 2007.
