Shauna Van Wijk, MScPT
As a local to the Elk Valley, raised in Fernie, B.C; Shauna is excited to be back in the area working with the community she refers to as home.
Shauna started her education at the University of Alberta in 2011, obtaining her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and completing her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy in 2017. She spent 3 of those 7 years as the assistant strength and conditioning coach, as well as sport therapist to the University rugby team. This experience gave her the opportunity to learn about all aspects of athlete health, in particular; on field treatment and traumatic injuries.
As a very active youth herself, Shauna was exposed to the benefits of physiotherapy at a young age. She loved the mix of athletics, hands on work and academics, which led her to her own physiotherapy career. Shauna’s goal is to work towards bridging the gap between rural and urban care here in the Elk Valley, by developing the tools to fill the specific needs of the community. Including one of her own special interests, vestibular therapy.
Shauna and her husband take full advantage of all that the Elk Valley has to offer, including horse-back riding, skiing, hiking and camping. With their families in the region as well, Shauna is pleased to establish her career locally and continue to call the Elk Valley home.
