About Me[edit | edit source]

I have been a physiotherapist since 1987, upon graduation from the BScPT program at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. After two years of clinical work in neurological rehabilitation, I enrolled in the Rehabilitation Science graduate program at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. After obtaining my PhD from McGill University in 1997, and a post-doctoral period, I joined the faculty of the School of Rehabilitation Therapy at Queen's University. I am currently a researcher and educator in physical therapy and rehabilitation science. Early in my research career, I focused on movement in people with neurological conditions: e.g., gait in people with incomplete spinal cord injury, tremor in people with Parkinson's disease or essential tremor, upper limb control in people with stroke. More recently, my research focuses on physiotherapy student education and assessment, and physiotherapy practice patterns more broadly.

Teaching[edit | edit source]

In the Queen's University MScPT program, I teach in a course about physiotherapy professional practice matters, and in another course about adults with neurological disorders. For the latter, in 2017, I started the Queen's University Neuromotor Function Project for students to create content for Physiopedia as a course assignment.
