Evan is a graduate of the University of British Columbia’s Masters in Physical Therapy program (2019) and the University of Victoria’s Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology program (2015).

Born and raised in Campbell River, he is excited to return home and contribute to the community. Evan grew up playing many competitive sports including basketball, soccer, and running, and his passion for Physiotherapy developed after working through his own injuries. He enjoys helping people with any type of injuries or conditions. Evan believes that movement is the best medicine, and therefore uses exercise as a foundation for treatment alongside his skills in manual therapy, soft tissue release, therapeutic modalities, and education.

Evan is an avid triathlete and has completed multiple triathlons including Half-Ironman Victoria and Canada. Outside of the clinic, you can find Evan spending time in the outdoors, training for his next race, or just hangin’ with his wife and dog.
