As many of you know I, Haylie Lashta, will be going on maternity leave soon, with my last day scheduling clients being June 2, 2017. I have searched for the perfect person to come in to cover for my maternity leave that can also complete women’s health assessment and treatment, and she has been found!

Kendra Usunier BMR(PT), MClSc, FCAMPT will be joining our team starting on May 23, 2017!

Biography

Kendra graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2008 with a Bachelors of Medical Rehabilitation in Physiotherapy. She went on to complete a Masters of Clinical Science in Manipulative Therapy from Western University in 2015.

Since graduating Kendra has worked in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. She returned to Saskatoon in 2012, and is excited to begin working in Warman. Having grown up in a smaller community, she is happy to return to that environment.

Kendra’s primary focus has been orthopaedics and women’s health. She has taken extensive additional training in orthopaedics, becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) – an internationally recognized qualification in manual and manipulative therapy.

In addition to orthopaedics, Kendra has a passion for women’s health and pre-and post-natal care. She has also taken additional courses in treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, acupuncture, pain management, and myofascial release.

Kendra has a passion for ongoing education in physiotherapy, striving to provide the most up to date, evidence based treatment for patients. She assists in instructing muskuloskeletal courses at the University of Saskatchewan and within the Canadian Orthopaedic Division Syllabus.

We are totally blown away! This year seems to be a total whirlwind of activity, nominations and growth for us at the clinic.

The Warman and Martensville Chambers of Commerce presented the second annual WMBEXA, and we were thrilled to be nominated in several categories. Only able to apply for two we were floored to be a finalist in Customer Service and New Business announced March 2017. Since the announcement of finalists for WMBEXA, Haylie was also revealed as a nominee for the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards for Health & Wellness, we announced the arrival of physiotherapist Kendra Usunier to begin work as of May 23, 2017, and we also had the pleasure of welcoming a student, Jill, for her first clinical placement in the MPT program through April and the first week in May.

May 5, 2017 was the WMBEXA event and it was spectacular! Many exceptional local businesses were finalists, many more had been nominated in 5 categories, and dozens of other businesses were a part of the event to network and enjoy the event.

Much to our shock and amazement, Warman Physiotherapy & Wellness was awarded the best New Business of 2017!

    

“I was thrilled to be a finalist in the company of 4 other amazing businesses. It seems that I although I have no problem talking for hours on end about the pelvic floor and all things physio, I have difficulty standing up for a 2 minute acceptance speech!

This clinic has been a vision of mine since I was in the school for Physical Therapy and I am so fortunate to have been able to make my dream a reality. This dream coming true would not be possible without the support of my family. My parents for being supportive and providing assistance whenever needed. My wonderful amazing and supportive family; my husband, Rob, for allowing me to work days, nights and weekends; often 60+ hours a week, as well as being our resident clinic ‘handy man’. My 3 year old daughter Emily for coming to the clinic ‘to do work stuff’ and dance with the skeleton when I’m sneaking in a client in need on a day off. THANK YOU.

I must thank my wonderful therapists and our support staff. They have been an integral part of the success of the clinic, and have fully embraced my business vision. It is common to see and hear crying babies and children at the clinic since we see so many women who are pregnant and post-partum, we feel providing care is most important, regardless of the ability to find childcare. THANK YOU.

There is no doubt that without the support of the community and our wonderful clients – past, present, and future – we would not be where we are today. Our success in our business journey would not be possible without you. THANK YOU.”

Helping you, help yourself. From infancy to old age.
