Marie was born and raised in the beautiful small town Breim in Norway, and decided to pursue a carrier in Physiotherapy after graduating High School. She started her Physiotherapy degree at the University of Sydney, Australia. Being bit by the travel bug, she took a little break from her studies to do some travelling though Asia, Australia and Europe before finishing her degree in Sweden in 2005. She then made the big move to Canada and the beautiful Okanagan, and has enjoyed working in private practice in West Kelowna ever since.
Since graduating, Marie has become certified in Acupuncture, Gunn IMS (intramuscular stimulation) and completed multiple Manual Therapy courses. During the course of her carrier Marie has worked as a clinical instructor for UBC School of Rehabilitation, team Physiotherapist for the Westside Warriors BCHL Hockey team, and volunteered in multiple sports events and for teams in the valley, including the Okanagan Sun Football team, the Center of Gravity Pro-Beach Volleyball tournament, BC Summer Games and Volleyball Provincials.
Marie enjoys treating a multitude of injuries and conditions and has a strong interest in sports rehabilitation. From her early teens she has had a passion for sports participating and competing on a high level in track and field and volleyball in Europe (and paying many visits to her local physiotherapist!). When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family and staying active through outdoors and indoors sports and recreation.
