Clare completed a Master of Physical Therapy degree at the University of British Columbia, graduating in 2021. Clare’s final school placement brought her to Nanaimo and since then, she has called Nanaimo home.

Clare has been working at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital since graduation, starting off in acute care and then moving over to an inpatient neuro rehab setting. In addition to this work, Clare looks forward to providing in-home treatment to clients to utilize people’s home environments and lessen the burden of transporting to/from therapy sessions.

Clare has a passion for neurological rehabilitation and loves supporting patients both in the hospital and in their homes. Clare’s treatments focus on education and exercise with an emphasis on making activity functional and meaningful. Her favourite part about being a physiotherapist is getting to know individuals, being a part of their rehab journey and growing with people as they work towards their goals.

Clare believes one of the many ways Physiotherapy is a rewarding career is the expectation for clinicians to prioritize lifelong learning. She has training in Vestibular Rehabilitation and has plans to complete NDT training this year.

In her spare time Clare is most likely riding her bicycle (all around Vancouver Island) or exploring the mid-island trails.
