Candace Foy

Paediatric Physiotherapist

Candace was born and raised on the Canadian Prairies and earned her degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta in 1998. After working at the Alberta Children’s Hospital and owning a clinic in Creston, British Columbia, her and her family, with longstanding ties to Australia, decided to embark on a transformative adventure. They fell in love with the welcoming community of Port Macquarie and made it their permanent home, becoming Australian citizens in 2019.

What do you love most about your job/industry?

I have a deep affinity for working with children of all ages, employing a holistic health approach to assist families. I love using developmental play to achieve therapeutic milestones in home and school environments. It’s incredibly fulfilling to help children and families thrive.

What are your areas of interest?

My primary areas of interest include pediatric physiotherapy, holistic health approaches, and community engagement through coaching sports like gymnastics and soccer.

What is your top tip?

Start a gratitude journal and write down three things you’re grateful for each day. This practice can improve your mental health by fostering a positive outlook and reducing stress.

People would be surprised if they knew…

That I had the honour of fulfilling a dream of playing the character of “Grace” in the stage play of “Annie” alongside my daughter who played the role of Annie when she was just 11!
