To become a leader in the healthcare industry, Dianna began her journey at McMaster University with an undergraduate Honours degree in Kinesiology in 2002. Following her work as a kinesiologist, with underprivileged individuals in Hamilton, Dianna embarked on a diploma in Holistic Nutrition. Wanting to create a niche within the healthcare industry and a desire to treat the “whole” individual, following a diploma in Holistic Nutrition, Dianna began her Masters of Science degree in Physiotherapy at McMaster University in 2008.
5 years later, Dianna expanded her skillset to include being a manual therapist, completing a Masters of Clinical Science in Manipulative Therapy. This designation allowed her to become a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT).
The Hamilton sports community has utilized Dianna’s skillset for the past 7 years, where Dianna tries to identify the link between nutrition, injuries, health and performance for all her clients, from professional athletes and McMaster University varsity athletes to the active community member.
Dianna hopes to continue to share her knowledge to future and current physiotherapists through teaching and mentoring.
In addition, Dianna strives to keep her skills current and to provide the best rehabilitation to her clients in order to achieve all her clients’ goals and offer the most effective client centered care
