In the summer of 2011 while competing at the Aquatic World Championships in Shanghai, China, I had a potentially career ending accident with a vehicle. Thanks to the guidance and expertise of Athletic Therapist Jennifer Davis-Persaud from Joint Effort, I was able to recover from a surgically repaired avulsion fracture caused by my IT Band on my Tibia, and return to competition exactly 3 months after the day for my accident to win the Bronze Medal at the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Jen and the staff at Joint Effort knew exactly how hard to push me while recovering from this and several other minor injuries to allow me to achieve my goals. Jen’s caring attitude and attention to detailed makes her an excellent Therapist and someone I am glad to call a friend.

Member of U18 Team Manitoba Women’s Hockey team (2009-2011)


As one of the first regular clients at joint effort I can truly say that it is a great place to go. The staff is super friendly and always willing to help you out.

Since I started seeing Jen back in 2009, I have had nothing but a great experience. Through time hard work, and Jen’s skills and guidance, I have overcome a chronic groin injury and other minor injuries. I always feel confident in Jen’s ability to treat me. As a goaltender in hockey, Jen has guided me in taking my fitness and conditioning to a whole new level. This has allowed me to compete at an elite level. In the end, Jen and the Joint Effort team have assisted me in achieving my dream of playing NCAA Division 1 hockey.

Tarina Paquin

Professional dancer with Ballet Kelowna

Studied with Royal Winnipeg Ballet 2003-2009

tarinaJennifer has helped me achieved my dream of becoming a professional dancer. I started receiving treatment and conditioning from her six years ago, and still to this day even though I now dance professionally in Kelowna whenever I return home, I make sure to scope her out and come in for a treatment.

Jen devotes her full attention to her clients and makes sure she does everything in her power to help you with whatever injury you are dealing with. If something is not working she will make sure to try different techniques to get the results required. Designing programs and giving you tools to help you along
the way.

I definitely credit her to helping me achieve my goals as a dancer, and getting my first professional contract with
Ballet Kelowna.

Thank you Jen!
