Tamara Broadfoot, Physiotherapist

What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?

Being active growing up, and playing a high level of Fastball and volleyball, as well as being NCAA athlete in Rowing, I had multiple injuries - learning more about the body and learning about how to heal the body became very interesting for me. Initially, I wanted to become a doctor, but wanted more one on one time with patients.

What do you love most about being a physiotherapist?

Having the ability to help patients heal from injuries of all sorts.

What are you looking forward to in 2022?
I am looking forward in to getting back to a normal Pre-Covid life. Watching my kids grow and making new and exciting memories with them.
Professionally, I am hoping to take a dry needling course.
