WOW PROGRAM DIRECTOR, PHYSIOTHERAPIST, KELLY WICKS PHYSIOTHERAPY P.C.
Kelly O’Donnell has been practicing physiotherapy in New Brunswick since 2004. Kelly began her post-secondary education in her home town of St. John’s, Newfoundland, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Memorial University. From there, she moved to Fredericton and completed a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick. Her love of human anatomy and human movement led her to pursue a career in the field of Physiotherapy. As a result, Kelly attended Dalhousie University in Halifax from 2001-2004, completing a degree in Physiotherapy, following which she moved back to Fredericton to begin her professional career.
In 2015 Kelly played an integral role in assembling a team of highly skilled and like-minded clinicians for the new Foundation Health Centre in Fredericton.
Over the years, Kelly has participated in a number of post graduate courses and specialty training that have given Kelly diversity in her approach to physiotherapy assessment and treatment. Although her main treatment area is orthopedics, she also holds special designations as a Certified Functional Capacity Evaluator and a Cognitive Functional Capacity Evaluator, giving her the ability to determine an individual’s current level of physical function and or cognitive function as it relates to their ability to perform specific job tasks. As a result, Kelly excels at working with injured workers of New Brunswick and contributing to their rehabilitation.
Kelly’s work experience has provided her with the opportunity to work with people of varying ages and populations. Kelly has done extensive work with veterans and she finds it very rewarding to participate in their rehabilitation process. She has worked hard to assemble a team of health professionals who work together to provide a well-rounded multidisciplinary approach in the health and wellness of our community Veterans.
Kelly Wicks Physiotherapy PC. is located at Foundation Health Centre PC. Her practice provides physiotherapy service, including aquatic therapy, for individuals suffering from acute and chronic injuries and conditions, Work Conditioning Programs for injured workers and Working on Wellness Programs designed specifically for Veterans.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Oli graduated from the school of physiotherapy at University of Brighton (UK) in 2002 and gained several years of experience working as a physiotherapist in the English National Health Service, treating a wide range of conditions and ages. As he became more experienced and also did further post graduate studies in musculoskeletal physiotherapy he took on a specialized role of treating complex spinal conditions (such as chronic low back pain, sciatica, neck pain and pre and post surgical patients) working with a spine surgeon and his team. Concurrently Oli was also working part time in a sports rehab clinic treating many sporting injuries from rugby, football (or soccer!) cricket, runners, field hockey and golf.
Oli moved to Canada and Fredericton in 2009 with his wife and now has 2 beautiful children, and outside of work tries to spend as much time as he can enjoying them as they grow. He is also a keen cyclist and jogger, and loves rugby (though mostly from his sofa these days).
Since arriving in Fredericton in 2009, Oli has practiced exclusively within the private rehabilitation sector. Oli is highly skilled and experienced in manual therapy techniques and specializes in the assessment and treatment of spinal disorders such as back pain, neck pain, and sciatica. Oli treats many muscle, joint & nerve problems and is experienced in treating sports injuries working with varying levels of athletes who somehow cause a wide variety of injuries to themselves. These injuries include, but are not exclusive to, hip, knee, ankle and shoulder injuries. Oli is also certified in acupuncture/dry needling.
Oli enjoys continuing his education and endeavours to practice evidence based rehab techniques with his clients to achieve optimal results, enjoys a challenge and the satisfaction of clients achieving their goals. He also enjoys the satisfaction of great coffee and good wine!

KINESIOLOGIST / REGISTERED DIETITIAN (C)
Raised in Durham Bridge, NB, Ryan is a dietitian who started work with Foundation Health Centre in 2020. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology Sciences from the University of New Brunswick, he moved to Halifax, where in 2019, he obtained his degree in Applied Human Nutrition from Mount Saint Vincent University.
Ryan is a lover of food from seed to fork. While studying nutrition, he ran the MSVU community garden for two and a half years, growing organic fruit and vegetables for the students and staff while teaching them how to do so for themselves. In this position at the garden, Ryan was able to teach people of all ages about nutrition and food by bringing them to the root of where it is produced.
After graduating, Ryan began to work as a Registered Dietitian and Kinesiologist at The Canada Games Centre in Halifax. During his time there, Ryan provided client centred nutrition counselling to users of the centre in order to help them make healthy behaviour changes with regard to nutrition and physical activity. In this position, Ryan was also able to develop and teach classes on various nutrition topics to different groups in the community, from children, to youth sports teams, or adults. He continues to grow his practice and currently has the intent of adding a certificate in diabetes education to his toolbox.
Ryan is very happy to be practicing in his home province and looks forward to helping you better understand any nutrition related issues you might have.
