Her football experience doesn't stop there. As an athlete she's played flag football for several years and tackle football for teams such as Halifax Explosions and Team New Brunswick and was slated to attend two sets of nationals until a personal injury took hold. This injury gave her first hand knowledge and invaluable insight into the reality of injuries within the sport and how it can affect athletes on every level, whether it be from a coaching perspective, athletic trainer, clinician or as an athlete themselves.
Over the years, Janice has specialized her practice with athletes of sport on a national level such as Football, Rowing, Swim and Lacrosse, as well as many other sports such as Crossfit, Hockey, Soccer, and Ironman triathletes.
Her client base has also continued to include children, elderly, weekend warriors, as well as a very prominent member of the Royal Family. For the upcoming season, Janice is very excited supporting the team and demonstrating her mad taping skills with the Halifax Harbour Hawks Men's Football Team.
