Katrina DziwenkaStrength & Conditioning Coach

Biography

I was born and raised in Sherwood Park, AB where I grew up playing soccer competitively. During my time as a competitive soccer player, I went through 3 major knee injuries where the Bridge quickly became my second home. During all the hours spent at the clinic I realized I wanted to be a part of this community long-term and help individuals get back to what they love.

I quickly grew to appreciate and love the collaborative environment and community centred space at the clinic which ultimately helped shape my idea of what kind of practitioner I wanted to be.

Knowing this, I attended the University of Lethbridge for a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. While attending the UofL, I played on the Pronghorns soccer team for 3 years and then after retiring took on a coaching position for a year before returning home.

From patient to staff member, I worked at the Bridge for 4 years as both a physiotherapist aide and a receptionist. Now as a Strength & Conditioning Coach I am able to utilize my experience to help educate young athletes about injury prevention and demonstrate how using a proactive approach to our health creates long-term benefits.

My passion for injury prevention, rehabilitation, and strength and conditioning, is clearly demonstrated while connecting with my clients regardless of their ages, abilities, or background in physical activity.

My philosophy of continuing education allows me to further my knowledge in order to provide the best care for my clients.

When I’m not in the clinic you can find me hiking, hitting up a new local business or brewing a fresh cup of coffee.
