Eliza has a special interest in women’s health and pelvic health physiotherapy. Her foray into pelvic health physiotherapy began not as a therapist, but as a patient.
Her first hand experience of the benefits of pelvic health physiotherapy and the positive influence it had on her quality of life, motivated her to pursue formal training in pelvic health. Since then, she has completed numerous courses focussed on treating incontinence, pelvic pain, dyspareunia, vaginismus, diastasis rectus abdominis, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic girdle pain, to name a few.
Eliza graduated in 2009 with a Masters in Physiotherapy. She began practising in Ontario in 2011 with a diverse orthopaedic caseload and gradually transitioned to a focus on treating women. Eliza has experience working with women of all ages, assisting them to overcome sexual health-related challenges, prepare for childbirth, return to exercise and activity after pregnancy and to age gracefully from peri to post menopause.
In addition to pelvic health, she also has experience working in orthopaedics, with sports injuries, and in post-surgical, hand, and geriatric rehabilitation.
She firmly believes in an evidence-based approach to practice and values continuing education. She is excited to begin her clinical mentorship in the Integrated Systems Model.
Eliza truly believes that optimal health is a combination of a healthy body, and a resilient spirit and mind.
When she is not practising, Eliza likes travelling with her spouse to off the beaten path destinations. She enjoys nature and it is one of the reasons why she relocated to B.C. recently from Southwestern Ontario. She also enjoys all things artsy and craftsy.
