Erica is a graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy (CAO) in Hamilton Ontario, where she received her Master in Practice Diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M.OMSc). This 4 year full time program was an absolutely challenging one, and changed the way Erica viewed the human body. It helped her understand why people can exercise and eat all of the right things, and still get sick or have pain. Osteopathy is where Erica has found her love and passion. She values the patient centered focus Osteopathy provides, and the individualized and practical/rational care it offers her patients.
Erica has long been passionate about optimal health and the human body. Consequently she spent almost a decade studying and learning this fascinating area of interest. First in London, at the University of Western Ontario where she graduated with a Specialization in Kinesiology and a Psychology Minor. During this time she volunteered at the Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic providing support for the Physiotherapists and Kinesiologists there. She also obtained her certification in personal training from the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.
Knowing that there was still much to learn and enjoying the practical side of the theory in her sports injury classes, she continued her studies and went on to learn Classical Osteopathy.
Erica is very gentle and focused in her approach, catering to each individual in the way that’s best for them. She enjoys working with people to help them achieve their health goals, whether it's being able to dance the night away at your wedding, experiencing fewer headaches and less neck pain, recovering from an injury, preparing for a surgery, or just having increased vitality overall so you can live your best life! When not in the clinic, Erica likes to spend time with her friends, family, and her two cats. She loves taking pictures, trying out new recipes, and being outdoors (especially at Ipperwash beach!). She enjoys reading as well as attending Osteopathic courses to continue learning and developing her skills and knowledge, as an Osteopathic Practice is a life-long learning and growing endeavor.
