Shelley was born and raised in New Zealand. Growing up on a farm, an appreciation for the outdoors was quickly founded . Always active in sport, art and learning in youth, she has taken these interests into adulthood. Shelley decided at the tender age of four that she wanted to be a Physiotherapist, following in the footsteps of an Aunty she admired. Shelley had a strong interest in Sciences, Art and Physical education at High School, this further strengthened the decision to study Physiotherapy.
Shelley took undergraduate papers in Design, Physiology and Anatomy prior to beginning her study in Physiotherapy. She Graduated from Physiotherapy at Otago University, New Zealand in 2005. She spent the first 2 years working in a Hospital in a small city called Rotorua, New Zealand, before beginning her world travels in 2007. Shelley likes a challenge and to be involved in a multitude of sports and activities.
Shelley was drawn to Canada in 2008 for open spaces with a variety of outdoor adventures on the doorstep. Squamish was a natural choice being the outdoor recreation capital of Canada. On arrival Squamish immediately felt like home. She continues to focus mostly on multisport, mountain biking and snowboarding outside of work hours.
Shelley has worked in Occupational Rehabilitation and private practice over the past year and a half. Often described as friendly and relaxed, she is also very driven and focused on learning more and excelling in her interests in life. Shelley is excited to continue with her professional development by taking multiple courses including Acupuncture in the next year. She is excited to be part of the ‘Reach Physio Solutions’ team and help enable future and current clients towards achieving their goals.
