Dr. Lisa is one of those rare born and raised Calgarians! After finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of Calgary she completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic at the Canadian Chiropractic College in Toronto. She practiced in Ontario for 6 years but missed Calgary so much that she moved back in 1999 and has been practicing here ever since. Dr. Lisa takes pride in having a very diverse knowledge base with specialty certifications in pediatric chiropractic care, kinesiotaping, and is a certified crossfit trainer. Dr. Lisa is constantly upgrading and expanding her knowledge of health and wellness, and is currently pursuing a fellowship in Functional Neurology – which is the type of treatment that was used to return Sidney Crosby to hockey. She has an extreme passion for treating Concussions and other brain based injuries. She also has a very strong passion for the importance of proper nutrition and exercise and how both play an extremely pivotal role in helping you achieve the maximum benefit from your chiropractic care, and moving you towards optimal health and well being.
