Patricia is originally from The Netherlands and immigrated with her family to Canada in 2003.

Their journey started in Calgary, Ab and after some moves around the country, they’re very excited to return to where it all started.

 

For 8 years she operated her own private clinic in Melville, SK and was blessed to be able to travel the world to gain more experience and understanding of the issues related to Lower Extremity Lymphedema.

 

Patricia has volunteered several times at the Lymphedema Filariasis clinic in Leogane, Haiti and the highlight of her career was an amazing internship with Dr. Treadwell at the Institute of Advanced Wound care in Montgomery, Alabama.

These opportunities have given her the passion and drive to be a voice for the Lymphedema community, especially those who are struggling with edema, lymphedema or chronic swelling in the legs, feet and ankles.
Patricia is a Certified International Edema, Lymphedema and Wound Care Therapist, a Certified Healthy-Steps/Lebed Method Instructor and a Certified Hellerwork Structural Integration Practitioner.

Patricia has received extensive trainings nationally and internationally in Edema, Lymphedema, and Wound care through Klose Training & Consulting and the International Lymphedema and Wound Care Institute.

Other qualifications include holding certification in Hellerwork Structural Integration through Northwest Hellerwork and in Healthy-Steps, Moving you to Better Health with The Lebed Method.
