Jill Dierijck

 

Jill is the newest Physiotherapist to join the PhysioFirst team! She was hired to take the lead at the Truro, NS clinic and will be around Grand Falls, NB periodically until it opens. Originally from Ontario, Jill began her studies at Wilfrid Laurier University where she was the Head Trainer for the Waterloo Wolves AAA Major Midget team and graduated a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Physical Education in 2015. Following this Jill completed a thesis at the University of British Columbia where she researched the effects of multiple previous concussions on reactive balance control and received a Master of Science in 2017. Finally, in 2019 Jill received a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University. During her time at Dalhousie Jill was the head of a charity event called For the Health of It raising $7000 with the physiotherapy team in just two months. 

Jill has expanded her practice by taking the Functional Capacity Evaluation course with Matheson Education and looks forward to continuing her education with courses to better serve her clients. Jill loves all areas of physiotherapy (such as rehabilitation, musculoskeletal injuries, and neurological populations), however her passion is in working with pediatric patients. She has extensive experience working with kids in summer camp settings as well as completing a pediatric physiotherapy placement at the IWK Children’s Health Centre.  

Jill believes in the Physiofirst motto of “Seen. Heard. & Understood.” and the teamwork that the professionals at PhysioFirst provide. She values an active approach to managing injury and disease with an emphasis on exercise.  

Look out for Jill the next time you stop by the clinic! 

Sascha Boulet 

I’m Sascha, i’m the CEO of PhysioFirst, and I started this practice to offer individuals a better healthcare. I felt like we were often numbers in a system without faces. I envisioned a team of professionals that actually worked together towards common goals to achieve not our goal, but our patients’ specific goals. 

I am originally from Grand Falls. I studied at the University of New Brunswick where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Then I pursued my Master’s degree at McMaster’s University in Ontario where I saw different ways the health care system could work. I had some exposure to women’s health and pediatrics while in Ontario. I returned to start practicing privately in Grand Falls and pursued my Doctorate degree through the states. 

After graduation I decided that I needed to start something from scratch that served a greater purpose. I wanted patients to have

a safe private space where they could discuss their health issues without fear. I wanted them to feel like they mattered. If you walk into one of our clinics I hope that is what you feel, a sense of belonging and professionals that hold your well being at heart. I also wanted a state of the art facility where we could give people an edge on their road to recovery.

My love lies in consultations and pelvic health/women’s health. I spend many days working with patients with incontinence, sexual pain, breast-feeding concerns, pregnancy related questions/pains, paediatrics, and pessary fittings. I also do some orthopedic cases a few days per week. 

I hope that when you enter our clinic, you feel safe and at home. We want you to open up, be honest, and let us help you. We work as a team and you are at the core of that team. 

Thank you for choosing us!
