She then continued at the University of Toronto and attained her Master of Science Physical Therapy degree. Since graduating she has challenged and attained her level one Manual Therapy credentials.

During her Physiotherapy school placements, she discovered she has an interest in burn and scar care, pre-and post-partum pelvic health, and addressing musculoskeletal injuries with a hands-on approach. She has experience treating joint replacements, fractures, sprains, strains, general deconditioning, balance impairments, arthritis, back pain, chronic pain, over-use injuries, maintaining strength and mobility, as well as many other conditions.  Tara enjoys the one-on-one care a Physiotherapist can provide and building therapeutic relationships with her patients. She states that she gains “a sense of satisfaction when she can work with someone and help rehabilitate them so that they can return to doing what they love/need to do. Some people come in feeling so frustrated and nervous about their injury. It feels good to help them regain their confidence during treatment sessions and start to enjoy life more again”.

When she is not working, Tara enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, camping, canoeing, cross-country running, or being with family and friends. She has a passion for wildlife.

Tara is excited to be a part of the team at Mariposa Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation and is accepting new patients!
