She has also completed post-graduate training in soft-tissue therapy, certification in low-level laser therapy as well as certification in custom orthotic therapy and foot biomechanics.
Upon graduating from CMCC, Dr. Fitzpatrick returned to Halifax where she and Dr. Richard Thompson founded Active Approach Health & Wellness Centre in 2006.
