Angus MacKay: Angus grew up in communities like Kelowna and Victoria led him to develop a love for the outdoors and a desire to help those around him. Prior to studying physiotherapy (in Australia!) Angus worked for Kids Physio at both the Fraser St and North Van locations as the Office Manager. He is so excited to be back in Vancouver as well as Kids Physio and working with all the incredible kids and families. Angus is passionate about getting to the root cause of injuries, understanding how kids move, what makes each child unique and most of all helping families reach their goals. From babies 18 days old to teens 18 years old, Angus has experience with a wide range of both neurological and musculoskeletal conditions and is excited to help every kid get back to being a kid!
Casey Legault: Born and raised in Montreal, Casey grew up wanting to try every sport under the sun. She moved to Vancouver to pursue her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at UBC, fell in love with the mountains and stayed to complete her Masters in Physical Therapy. Casey has 10 years experience coaching soccer for kids aged 4 to 8 and teens in Special Olympics and is excited to use those kids at Kids Physio. From achieving motor milestones to participating in a favourite activity, Casey’s goal is to help kids have fun while building a strong foundation of movement skills to remain active for life!
