It is very important to Keira to continually increase her knowledge base not only for her own benefit but most importantly her clients. That is why she continually pursues evidence based postgraduate courses.

Outside of work, Keira keeps herself busy at the barn riding and training her multiple horses. Keira has a wide variety of riding, training and showing experience over the years: Western Pleasure, Open Showing, Barrel Racing, Jumpers and Eventing. The experience in many different disciples allows her to know the expectations and physical demands of each sport, allowing for individualized treatments. Keira also enjoys a number of physical activities including yoga, running and weight lifting.
