BHK, MPT | Registered Physiotherapist | She/Her
Pelvic Health, Biopsychosocial Model of Care
RIDGE MEADOWS HOSPITAL, MAPLE RIDGE
Jessica knows that pelvic health care relies on clients sharing sensitive information about their bodies and lives; to be trusted with this information and your care is an incredibly humbling experience. Jessica seeks first to understand, as you are the expert of your own body.
Jessica graduated with a Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia in 2011. After graduation, Jessica began working in public health as it gave her opportunities to work in a diverse number of practice areas and have a team of clinicians to learn from. Jessica was particularly interested in the work she was able to do focusing on neurological rehabilitation for adults.
Jessica’s journey to practicing in pelvic health physiotherapy began after the birth of her first child when she needed to seek out the services of a pelvic health physiotherapist herself. Experiencing excellent partnered and evidenced-based care from her pelvic health physiotherapist, midwives and obstetrics team, lit a desire to practice in this amazing and underserved area of medical care. Jessica completed her training and has been practicing as a pelvic health physiotherapist since 2018.
Jessica has been able to practice pelvic health in both a private physiotherapy setting as well as in public health. Jessica has a keen interest in pelvic pain and continuing to support access to services both inside our funded healthcare model and beyond. Jessica is excited to be apart of the Full Circle Physiotherapy Pelvic Health Collective to continue to collaborate on providing services in places that may not have access to care.
Outside of work, you can find Jessica outdoors with her family running, hiking and exploring this beautiful province she gets to call home.
