Member of Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec (OPPQ)
Julie graduated from the Université de Montréal, UdeM, with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Physiotherapy in 2019. Julie has immersed herself in neurodevelopmental approaches in pediatrics with 3 clinical internships alongside children. She worked with children with a variety of diagnosis such as Motor Delay, Cerebral Palsy, Torticollis, Plagiocephaly, Head Trauma, Autism, Down Syndrome and other Genetic Disorders. She also worked with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Julie always knew she wanted to work in pediatrics as she has been working throughout her studies as a substitute educator in two different daycares since 2014. Through her work, she promoted children’s participation and independence by planning activities stimulating global development. She also provided the necessary care for children’s wellbeing in collaboration with their caregiver’s concerns. From a young age, she always loved mixing sports and arts. She practiced classical ballet and contemporary dance for 9 years and went on to perform for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal. She’s also a runner and a yoga enthusiast who applies her training experiences and creativity to her pediatric practice with families.
She is very excited to be starting her new journey as a healthcare professional with the dynamic and resourceful team at Kiddo Active Therapy.
