We go back, way back to 2003 where we met at the Dalhousie School of Physiotherapy. It’s funny how Newfoundlanders somehow gravitate to each other, even when they are from very different parts of the Rock and both transplanted onto “the Mainland”. The past 2 decades has led us down a number of paths and included many adventures both personally and professionally. We have experienced a lot together from studying, teaching, managing, coaching, working, playing, training, to travelling the world.
In Physio school we weren’t in the same classes, but somehow that Newfoundland glue found us and stuck us together.
After a few years we became partners at the clinics that we would eventually go on to own. We bought a house, we got a dog (now 2 more) and we became permanent Nova Scotians – much to the chagrin of our Newfoundland (and one Fijian) parents. Halifax is where we met and it has always been the backdrop of our story. This city is woven into our lives, our history and our future. From that first coffee date at the original Dandelion Cafe on Spring Garden, to concerts at the Pogue Fado, walks through the Dalhousie campus and long nights studying at the Forrest and Tupper building. We are a part of this city and it is a large part of us. As much as we are Newfoundlanders, we are also Haligonians.
In the past 16 years our little company has grown a lot to include many services and specialities. We are happy to employ so many other Haligonians, many of them also transplanted Canadians. We have seen our families grow, adding many 2 and 4 legged friends along the way. We have seen and continue to see our therapists grow professionally into great therapists and personally into great people. We truly look forward to continuing to grow together. It’s been an amazing ride over the past two decades and we look forward to the next two.
