For the past 18 years Tanya has enjoyed assessing and treating children and adults with varying conditions and disabilities including, acute neurological disorders, cerebral palsy, traumatic orthopaedic injuries, genetic disorders, and other orthopedic/soft tissue injuries.

In 2008-2009 Tanya was a Clinical Instructor at the University of Western Ontario School of Physical Therapy. In 2012, Tanya was hired as the clinical program leader for the Neurodevelopmental Paediatric Physiotherapy Department in the start up phase of Boomerang Health Powered by SickKids. She was a paramount influence in the creation of the physiotherapy department. In 2016 Tanya decided to pursue her goal of starting her own practice which she still runs today and is called Just 4 Kids Physio.

Tanya’s passion for her career is evident during all of her treatment sessions and finds treating infants and children to be incredibly rewarding.  She likes to incorporate a fun, playful atmosphere into her rehabilitation sessions.

When not working, Tanya is a very busy mother of 3 children and her family dog, Diego! She enjoys staying fit by practicing yoga and Pilates, going on family hikes, baking, painting and running after her 3 little ones.

Tanya is very excited for the opportunity to become part of the WOMB family and start a new chapter in her career!
