Yvonne is Canadian and began her education in Canada. She later moved to the United States to attend university on scholarship, earning a BSc. in Science and Education. A few years later, she returned to University, and graduated with an additional BSc. in Physical Therapy from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in 1992.
She began her career as an acute care physiotherapist, working in large teaching hospitals and Level 1 Trauma Centers in Texas. Specialising in “Neurotrauma”, these facilities provided Yvonne the opportunity to gain valuable experience in working with patients with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, orthopaedic multi-trauma, burns and wounds. After spending thirteen years in Acute Care, she moved to a Rehabilitation hospital for the next five years.
In 2004, Yvonne began taking classes to further her manual therapy skills, and in 2010, she transitioned to working in out-patient care. Moving to Austin, TX, she joined Hands On Physical Therapy, a clinic specialising in Myofascial Release (MFR). While at Hands On, she began working with women and men experiencing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
Returning to Dallas in 2015, Yvonne opened her own private physical therapy practice. While skilled in several manual therapy and massage techniques, Yvonne specialises in Myofascial Release (MFR) and is a John F. Barnes Advanced Level MFR Practitioner. The majority of her clientele were people that had been to traditional physiotherapy and/or chiropractic and did not receive the relief they’d hoped for. Diagnoses treated included both musculoskeletal and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Joining Taylor Physiotherapy in October 2018, Yvonne has “come home” to Scotland. She is Canadian and her parents and grandparents were all born in Scotland. Her educational and professional background, combined with her personal experiences as a college athlete, runner and past pain sufferer, allow her to be a compassionate and knowledgeable advocate for her patients. She specialises in manual therapy/Myofascial Release musculoskeletal issues and in treating men’s and women’s pelvic floor dysfunction.
