While working outside of Central Alberta she has worked in Private clinics, private and public hospitals as well as working with athletes and sports-related injuries. She is passionate about helping people move better, live better, be more independent to achieve their dreams and goals. One of her favourite quotes is “To be successful you don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step” and she is passionate about supporting her clients to take that first step.
One of her biggest values is giving back to the community, choosing to volunteer for not for profit organization with a focus around social causes when she can. When not at work you will find Prajakta outdoors on hikes, trails walks, horseback, and bike riding. Thankfully Red Deer has no shortage of opportunities for her to enjoy all these amazing outdoor activities so we know she will be around for quite some time.
