IMG_8972Lisa Nugent is no stranger to Vital Link. In 2009, she came in for an appointment and knew she wanted to be a part of the team. A week later she answered a job posting for an Office Manager and joined Vital Link. Lisa has always had an interest in health and wellness. She comes from a family involved in competitive sports and enjoys watching her two girls compete and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

After years of clinic management, her admiration of Osteopathic Manual Practice grew and she decided to return to school to follow her passion.

“I have watched various practitioners working in a clinic setting treat patients who experienced life-changing treatments. People of all ages, health issues and traumas found relief when no one else was able to help them— I wanted to be part of that!”

Lisa completed her 4 years of schooling at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy earning her degree of Master in Practice of Osteopathic Manual Sciences. 

Lisa has a keen interest in educating families about the importance of Osteopathic treatment from birth onwards. She has continued her education through various pediatric courses and is excited to share her knowledge.
