Our Team


Dylan Turner - Certified Athletic Therapist, Osteopathic Manual Therapy student, CPR-BLS Instructor 

I am most passionate about helping people return to doing what they love. The most fulfilling feeling to me is when someone thanks me for helping them to do what they are passionate about in their own lives. 

I tend to focus on using a combination of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise, zeroing in on the root cause of pain and injury to ensure it doesn't resurface later. I particularly enjoys treating chronic pain, migraines/headaches, and foot dysfunctions. 

Going back to school to become an osteopath has always been a goal of mine. Particularly because this schooling will give me the opportunity to expand my knowledge base and help my patients that much more. 

Outside of work, I love to be active. I have played soccer in Calgary since I was 4 and always enjoy being able to get outside and see what the city has to offer. I spend most days walking with my dog whenever I can.

Micah Reim - Certified Athletic Therapist 

I’m an enthusiastic therapist, passionate about helping people achieve their goals. My journey started back in High school. I ended up seeing an athletic therapist for several injuries throughout various sports and activities. They inspired my love for Athletic Therapy. My passion quickly grew while I attended the University of Calgary for a Bachelors of Kinesiology, and then even more again with my Professional degree in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal University. After Graduating I jumped into the field immediately, working with several rugby clubs, football programs, hockey teams, soccer, judo, you name it. In the clinic, I strive to always ask the question of “why”? This led my journey through continuing education. I have since focused on neurological performance and optimization. I actively continue to learn and teach in various environments. My passion for education led me to the University of Calgary, where I also work as an Athletic Therapist in the Varsity Department, and a practicum supervisor for the Athletic Therapy program at Mount Royal University. This helps me always stay on the cutting edge of new research and therapies available. 

In my spare time, I love getting out and climbing. Whether that’s rocks, waterfalls, or mountains, I wanna go up and explore. This marries well with my love for backpacking and adventuring. If I'm not in the clinic - a good bet is to ask what I was climbing. In the winters my climbing is interspersed with coaching curling.

Terra Sergeant - Certified Athletic Therapist

As a small town Albertan, I value the power of team work, personal relationships, and collaboration to create a strong community. These are characteristics that I hold at the forefront of my practice.

Prior to becoming a certified athletic therapist I worked for several years in the dental community. My experience spanned from general dentistry, sports dentistry, TMJ dentistry, and oral surgery. I uniquely combine my athletic therapy skillset with my dental knowledge to work with local dentists and dental surgeons to collaboratively treat head, neck, and TMJ pain and dysfunction.

Upon moving to Calgary, I swiftly fell in love with the mountains, rivers, and hiking trails. Exploring these areas through backpacking, paddling, trail running, and dragonboating have become my favorite hobbies and contributed to my clinical practice. As a certified running coach I combine running training programs, exercise-based rehabilitation, and manual therapy to help the running community. I enjoy collaborating with all styles of runners, whether you are a leisurely jogger, ultra-runner, or anywhere in between.

I enjoy supporting a diverse community within my professional practice, and working collaboratively with my clients to tackle problem areas from head to toe.

David Bertrand - Certified Athletic Therapist 

My love for Athletic Therapy started in my undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa when given the opportunity to work with the varsity hockey team. It was there I discovered some of the amazing opportunities this career path has to offer and decided to pursue it at Mount Royal University. 

I have a passion for working with active individuals that are motivated to get back to what they love doing. It is my aim as an Athletic Therapist to help others to achieve their health goals, while educating them about the anatomy behind their injury. My style of treatment primarily focuses on using manual therapy and emphasizing mobility and biomechanics to complement the management of acute and chronic injuries. I personally enjoy being on the sideline covering sports events, working with knee pathologies, and concussion assessment.

When I am not working in the clinic or field, you can find me in the outdoors or with my friends and family! My spare time is usually occupied with soccer, hockey, hiking, backcountry camping, and walking the dog.
