Sue Van Evra, BSc.PT, MSc, BHScPT, Dipl. Canine Rehab (c)
Sue obtained her Physiotherapy Degree from McMaster University in 1993 (after completing both honours and Master’s degrees in Physiology from the University of Western Ontario). Sue has spent the last quarter of a century working in outpatient orthopaedics with humans, and has been studying Canine Rehabilitation since 2006. Sue is passionate about learning and problem solving and has completed many advanced courses (both human and canine rehab) to better be able to assess and treat patients effectively.
If you ask Sue what things she could not live without…one of the answers would be a dog! Sue is a huge dog-lover and her passion for the canine world makes her excited to be able to work with dogs and to use her experience and in-depth knowledge of physiotherapy principles to rehabilitate the canine population!
Sue is completing her Diploma in Canine Rehabilitation and is on the Education Committee for the Animal Rehabilitation Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Division so that she can make courses in Canine and Equine Rehabilitation available to physiotherapists in Canada.
When Sue is not working, she can be found training her new Golden Retriever puppy –‘Jane’, or running, road biking, swimming, or skate skiing with her fiancé Steve.
Sue spent a short time working at the Canine Fitness Centre back in 2011, but with the long commute from Canmore and her other work engagements, it was too difficult to continue at the time. However, when Sue announced that she was moving to Calgary in early 2016, everyone was delighted at the opportunity to bring her back on staff!
