Biography

Brianna graduated from the University of Alberta with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2020. Before getting into the physical therapy program, she completed a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Brianna has been involved in sports for most of her life, including martial arts, powerlifting, and Olympic weightlifting. Brianna's initial interest in pursuing physical therapy was because, in her teens, she received physical therapy for a knee injury and had such a positive experience with her physical therapist that she decided she wanted to pursue a career where she could combine her interests in sports, exercise, and health. Most importantly, Brianna wanted to pursue a profession where she could make a positive impact, no matter how small, on someone's life.
