Karen Nichol is the owner and founder of Royal City Physio and is also one of our amazing physiotherapists!
To sum up 2022, we've asked Karen a few interview style questions so you can learn more about this years highlights and her career goals for 2023. We've also asked her all about the holidays. For fun, read along to find out the inside scoop to Karen's holiday traditions!
What is your favourite highlight from 2022?
Had such a fun summer spending lots of time with friends I hadn't seen in so long and really enjoyed camping around BC with our root tent! Also have to send a little shout out to the Sr A Adanacs! It was so fun to finally be back in the rink with such a great group this year and finishing the season tied for first place was awesome!
What is one professional goal for 2023?
Really excited to be able to dedicate more time to our three new therapists and help them feel really comfortable in treating the huge variety of injuries that we see in the clinic each week. Also can't wait to spend more time in the community with my physio team in 2023 as we plan to help out with many of the grass roots teams around our clinic. Injury prevention and proper fitness training is something that we will focus on with our local young athletes.
What is your favourite holiday movie?
The Holiday (I know it's such a chick flick but I can't help but watch it EVERY year!)
What is your favourite holiday activity?
Definitely snow shoeing (or snowboarding if we have enough snow!)
Where is your dream location to spend the holidays?
A snowy cabin with a big fireplace, lots of games & my loved ones!
What is your favourite holiday food or drink?
Food- Christmas breakfast with all the fixings!
Do you have a favourite holiday tradition? If so, what would it be?
Christmas eve always includes watching a classic Christmas movie and walking the neighbourhood to see all the lights & visit with neighbours.
