Dana was born and raised in Nanaimo, BC with her family of two siblings. She fell in love with the sport of gymnastics at the young age of two, and continued to compete up to a national level. With gymnastics training came ballet and jazz dance training as well. At the age of ten she began highland dancing where she excelled quickly to the premier level. Dana started coaching gymnastics at the age of twelve and has attained her level 3 NCCP women's artistic gymnastics training, and NCCP level 3 trampoline gymnastics training. She also received her associate highland dance teacher's certificate.


Immediately after graduating from Dover Bay High School in 2010, Dana began her post-secondary education at Vancouver Island University (VIU) in a Bachelor of Arts of Physical Education program. She soon knew this was not the path she wanted to take and was accepted into the Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy program at Camosun College. She moved to Victoria, BC where she studied Athletic and Exercise Therapy for four years, which required 600 hours of field experience, and 600 hours of clinical experience. She worked with various teams including the VIU soccer and basketball teams and the Nanaimo Senior B Timbermen Lacrosse team. She travelled with the Timbermen to the National Championships for two consecutive summers, and recently was the head athletic therapist for the 2019 President’s Cup hosted in Nanaimo, BC. Dana graduated at the top of her class in June 2016 and then travelled to Calgary, AB to write her Canadian Athletic Therapists Association National Certification Exam. Education is something that she loves to partake in, and has recently began a Master’s degree in Disability Management.


Dana is excited to help individual's reach their peak performance level no matter what their occupation, activity, or sport may be through prevention, rehabilitation, and sound return to play (activity) planning. She believes her experience as an athlete herself helps her to be the holistic therapist she is today and allows her to excel at her specialty of dealing with aesthetic type sports and activities such as gymnastics and dance. Dana is looking forward to providing an option to her clientele that allows them to stay at their usual place of work, activity, or sport and she comes to you. Dana is thrilled to start helping YOU with YOUR PROJECT!
