His interest in physiotherapy developed during his childhood as he played many sports including a competitive career in junior hockey and a year playing college soccer in BC. Riley grew up in the small town of Nakusp, BC, where he cultivated a passion for hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and community sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball, golf and hockey. Throughout his youth, he also had the privilege of winning two provincial titles in hockey and one in soccer. In his spare time he enjoys playing the guitar and shows a great passion for music.
His love for athletics and weightlifting motivates him to maintain a healthy lifestyle and guided him towards a treatment style that is sports focused and movement based. Before pursuing a career in physiotherapy, Riley became a journeyman electrician which has given him a great understanding for treatment and injury prevention within the trade force.
