Jayme Muir, Physical Therapy
Current Work and Career Goals: Upon completion of her Master of Science in Physical Therapy Jayme began practicing in a Private Orthopedic Clinic. Jayme currently works at The Physio Spot, a private clinic in Markham, Ontario as an Orthopaedic Therapist where she specializes in Pelvic Health and Vestibular Physiotherapy.
In addition to her clinical work, Jayme holds a strong passion for leadership and community involvement. Jayme channeled her passion for leadership and community building into several roles within the Department of Physical Therapy during her time as a student, and now sits on the Admissions Committee for the Department of Physical Therapy. She plans to continue giving back to the Department of Physical Therapy by one day becoming a clinical instructor or facilitator.
Since graduating, Jayme has also completed postgraduate coursework in taping, TMJ Dysfunction, and paediatric neurodevelopment. She has also obtained her Level 1 Manual Therapy certification in Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy and her Level 1 in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy.
Jayme hopes to pursue a career that will allow her to combine her passion for leadership, working with youth, and promoting women’s health. Professionally she plans to obtain her Diploma of Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy, and she looks forward to expanding her pelvic health knowledge. Jayme’s dream is to provide pelvic and paediatric care to moms and their children. She is very excited to be joining a private pediatric clinic in the coming month in addition to her private orthopedic clinic.
