This experience and her passion to optimize each patient’s ability to return to their desired level of activity can be felt immediately upon your fist meeting.

Her practical experience to managing injuries and the injured patient grew through her active involvement in sports (figure skating, triathlon - 5-time Ironman finisher including Hawaii, running, cycling, skiing and Pilates) as well as her own experiences of pregnancy and post-natal recovery.

Nanci completed her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto in 1997. This was against the backdrop of a Bachelor of Human Kinetics from the University of Windsor (1992).
