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


Evan grew up in Campbell River and has always had a love for sports and fitness. He loves weight training, golf, basketball, and triathlon. While these sports have kept him active, they have not been without their own physical hurdles and injuries. It was through his own process of injury recovery that he discovered a love for anatomy and rehabilitation, which led him to pursue education in Physiotherapy.


As a Physiotherapist he loves finding the source of the problem and using the most appropriate treatment tools to create a solution. Evan uses hands-on manual therapy, Dry Needling (IMS), exercise rehabilitation, and education to ensure his clients obtain the best rehab experience. His current interests lie in shoulder rehabilitation, low back injuries, strength training injuries, and vestibular rehabilitation, but he is excited to see anyone that comes in the door!


Outside of the clinic, you can find Evan on the trails with his wife, daughter, and dog, at the gym, or golfing when the weather is good.
