Victoria grew up on Vancouver Island and has enjoyed the variety of athletics available here. Victoria participated in competitive soccer up to her college days; including representing Vancouver Island as part of a team that competed on the mainland, Washington State and Oregon. Following her own season ending injuries in soccer, Victoria’s interest was piqued in the science of rehabilitation. After exploring different fields of study, Victoria completed her undergraduate degree in kinesiology at the University of Victoria in 2019. Within six months, she began working as a kinesiologist in an interdisciplinary clinical where she focused on Active Rehabilitation for individual’s in motor vehicle accidents. This experience has afforded her the opportunity to see similar injuries on a varied population and provided demographic insight for recovery.
Outside of the clinic, Victoria continues her athletic pursuits in soccer through a local Div 1 team and on the golf course. Following in her father’s footsteps, a CPGA Class A Teaching Professional, Victoria has remained focused on golf throughout her education. She is going to advance her clinical skills for golf swing analysis through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certification. Victoria has so far broadened her scope of practice with continued education in Shockwave therapy (SWT), functional movement screening (FMS), and assistive taping. She focuses on helping people recover from motor vehicle accidents, return to functional activities of daily living, and improve their overall health towards personalized goals.
As an avid golfer, albeit by no means of a professional level, Victoria looks to continue research in the golf swing domain from a biomechanical perspective. While we hear about this ‘textbook swing’, and the foundations of a golf swing remain the same, each person will have unique characteristics. Victoria is not interested in how to teach someone to swing a club but rather how to optimize each person’s swing to their physical abilities. This will be explored through certifications with TPI and personally conducted research — plus spending some free time watching the PGA Tour in the name of science.
