Dr. Ackerman attended the University of Alberta where she studied biological sciences and French Language Arts. She achieved a Bachelor’s in Human Biological Sciences and continued her schooling to graduate Magna Cum Laude from the University of Western States with her Doctorate in Chiropractics. She is also a Certified Provider of Active Release Technique and Graston technique, both of which grew popular in the athletic community but have great benefit to the general population as well. Dr. Ackerman believes continuing education is of the utmost importance when working in the healthcare field and attends seminars and workshops to further her knowledge base as often as she can. She is also registered to take Medical Acupuncture in the fall and plans achieve a Master’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science in the next couple of years.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Ackerman gives back to the community through her involvement with non-profit organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Run for the Cure, and Heifer International. She is also an Equestrian Showjumper, training out of Thunderbird Stables in Langley and attending competitions throughout Western Canada and the United States.
