Professional Approach

Samantha has an extensive background in Soccer and Basketball, having played throughout highschool, college and university. She brings this passion to her athletes and clients at RTP, working extensively with provincial level soccer athletes, and as Head Athletic Therapist with the Club de Soccer de Longueuil and Collège Durocher. With the use of manual therapy and movement education, Samantha strives to help all her clients return to their desired activity or level of competition stronger and pain-free. Having gone through a significant knee injury herself, she values the ability to connect with her athletes and accompany them throughout their journey to recovery.
