Get to know Physio Danielle!


A bit about myself

Hi there, my name is Danielle Egan. I am a physiotherapist originally from the United States and I am so excited to join the team at McGowan Physio! I graduated with my Doctor of Physical Therapy from University of Delaware in the USA in 2019 after I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Biology.

Skating and injury as inspiration

When I was growing up, I was a competitive figure skater and won a regional title at age 11 before I sustained a stress fracture in my lower back when I was 13. The knowledge and dedication of my own physiotherapists in helping me to get back on the ice as safely and as quickly as possible motivated me to become a physiotherapist myself. Due to their hard work, I was able to get back on the ice and progress to the sectional level of skating within a couple years of my injury. After graduating high school, I continued to skate competitively throughout college and ended my competitive career with a 3rd place finish at collegiate nationals while in graduate school.


Outside of skating, I also participated in other sports including swimming, gymnastics, and all types of dance. Nowadays, I continue to stay active by skiing, hiking, kayaking and figure skating whenever I have a chance. I also love coaching ice skating in order to educate, challenge, and inspire athletes to be the best that they can be both on and off the ice - a mindset I also carry into my physiotherapy practice.
