Tavish Lahay-Decker

H.B.Sc.(KIN), C. Ped (C)

Tavish was introduced to the field of pedorthics through volunteering during her university career. During this time she had the opportunity to shadow personal trainers, chiropractors and physiotherapists however it was with her involvement in gait training a child with cerebral palsy that sparked her interest in pedorthics. After volunteering with Kimberly Rau, she knew that a career in pedorthics was the right fit for her. Through her volunteer work with various fitness programs, with both special populations as well as healthy, Tavish has gained an appreciation for maintaining physical activity while preventing injuries.

After graduating from the University of Waterloo in 2009 with her Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology she completed the Pedorthic Program at the University of Western Ontario in 2011. Tavish has a keen interest in pedorthics education and in the future plans on contributing to the educational goals and training of future pedorthists.

In her free time Tavish enjoys cycling, sailing and gardening when she`s not spending time with her family and multiple pets.
