Teri Large, Clinic Manager
Teri Large has joined Body Works as the Clinic Manager.
Teri is passionate about creating a warm, inviting atmosphere and ensuring an exceptional client experience. Please feel free to introduce yourself when you call or come into the clinic. Teri would love to get to know you and how we can serve you best.
Teri comes from a large multidisciplinary health and sports complex where she supported athletes and clients of all ages and levels. From her work with post-surgical and post-concussion clients she understands the toll rehab can take on one’s patience, emotional health, and life overall. She believes in assisting people to find ways to empower themselves, take action, and yet have compassion for themselves and others during the healing journey they are on.
Teri was born and raised in Kelowna but has called North Vancouver home since 2014. Teri enjoys reading, dancing, yoga, hiking, spending time with family and friends, and sipping drinks on tropical beaches.

Nanette Shaw, Casual Reception
Nanette Shaw is our “retired” Clinic Manager at Body Works, previously known as the “Goddess Do It All”. She is still an essential member of our team, but now on a very casual basis.
Nanette grew up in Nanaimo and moved to Vancouver where she completed a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation at UBC. She spent several years working as an Occupational and Physical Therapist at Shaughnessy and Richmond Hospitals.
Nanette left her career to raise her 2 children in 1992 when she and her husband moved to Nova Scotia. They moved to North Vancouver in 2007 and Nanette met Dana when she was looking for a Physiotherapist for her daughter and for herself. After success in treatment, and overall being impressed with the treatment and clinic atmosphere, Nanette joined the Body Works team as a key member in May 2013.
Outside of the clinic, Nanette can usually be found working in her garden or assisting her husband with home renovation projects. Nanette loves wine, dogs and the west coast of BC.
