Health Partners would like to welcome our new physiotherapist, Denine Ellis.
Denine developed a passion for health and wellness at a very young age. Growing up as a competitive soccer player and runner, she had her share of injuries, and her exposure to physiotherapy started a love for the profession. Denine began her career as a personal trainer and Kinesiologist, leading to a strong exercise background – she has experience treating everything from sports injuries to heart disease using exercise as the main modality. Denine completed her Masters in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto, and has been practicing in a sports based environment since.
Denine loves treating athletes of all kinds, and stays on top of current research and courses in order to best serve her clients. She is certified in acupuncture through CAFCI, and has taken an interest in pelvic floor physiotherapy, completing various courses related to women’s health.
Outside of work Denine enjoys running, hiking, snowboarding and beach volleyball. Having just moved to town from Vancouver, BC, she is excited to experience all the beautiful outdoors Barrie has to offer!
Welcome to the team Denine!
