Jennifer Waring

Registered Physiotherapist, MPT, BSc

Jennifer is a graduate of the University of British Columbia where she completed her Masters in Physical Therapy. Raised in Campbell River, and an islander at heart, she is pleased to work in both private and public practice in her home community. Since becoming a mother herself, Jennifer has a special interest in working with 0-18 year olds with musculoskeletal injuries. She also has training in concussion management, vestibular disorders (dizziness or vertigo) and Functional Dry Needling (IMS).


Jennifer is excited to be part of the team at Active Living Physiotherapy where she can provide quality and client-centered care. When not helping people in the clinic she can be found with her husband and son walking their very big friendly dog in the trails or hitting the slopes at Mt. Washington in the winter.
