Shellene Dirk


Clearwater Physical Therapy owner Shellene became a health-minded entrepreneur in 2003 and has ambitiously managed and worked within her own company ever since. A native of Turtleford, Sask., she graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Saskatchewan.

Shellene moved to Fort McMurray, AB in 1999 as a practicing Physical Therapist but felt the region was lacking a clinic with heart. Clearwater Physical Therapy opened its doors as a clinic where patients, employers, and employees felt empowered to pursue positive objectives. Shellene and her clinic’s intentions have always gone far beyond injury treatment with a collaborative focus on patient wellness.
