Lyndie is from Calgary, AB, Canada, where she competitively ski raced for many years. During that time she had a lower back injury which sparked her initial interest in rehabilitation. She moved to Vancouver to attend UBC and attained her Bachelor of Kinesiology Degree. She worked as a kinesiologist for several years working with patients recovering from motor vehicle accidents, brain and spinal cord injuries, neurological conditions and long term care.
Four years ago, Lyndie moved to New Zealand, where she completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy Degree at the University of Otago in 2019. She won numerous awards in her Physiotherapy program, including the Neurological Special Interest Award and Best All Round Student Award. Through the course of her program she was placed at GF Strong Rehabilitation Center in Vancouver, the Acute Neurosurgery Ward as well as a Community Outpatient Program for people with neurological issues. These placements helped to ignite her passion for neurological physiotherapy and working with people.
Lyndie has also completed several exercise specialization courses, a MIPA work course which is a modality aimed at releasing fascia and SCIMOOC Spinal Cord Injury Online Course.
Outside of Physiotherapy, Lyndie loves many outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, camping and ski touring. Lyndie has a dog who loves to join her on all of these adventures. She also loves to cook and bake.
