Our Team

Ola Jiskra
Clinic Owner

My passion for being a part of helping individuals heal started about 20 years ago. I managed two successful rehabilitation centres for approximately 10 years and when it was time to move on I realized that this wonderful industry was deeply rooted in my heart.. I could not imagine doing anything else. My incredible husband and I took the plunge in 2008 and we are now celebrating 11 years in business. We are fortunate enough to operate within such an amazing community and we are proud to give back whenever possible. This year, along with a few trail blazing local businesses, we will hold our 4th annual movie under the stars event – a fundraiser in support of our local youth centres. We are also very proud corporate sponsors of the Georgetown Hospital Foundation and are involved in many other community initiatives. I live in Georgetown with my husband and two magical daughters.

Hi everyone!  My name is Riley, and I have been a proud member of the Generations family for almost 10! I started at the clinic as a patient when I was 16, and was fortunate enough to join the staff shortly after my shoulder surgery recovery. I have been lucky enough to be trained as both a “Front Desk Coordinator” as well as “Physiotherapy Assistant” at the clinic, but generally you’ll see me up front chatting with clients, answering phones & billing. 
I grew up in Georgetown, and went to university in Sudbury, at Laurentian where I studied Sport and Exercise Psychology. I continued onto Mohawk College to complete my post grad in Mental Health and Addictions, and I am currently completing a certificate in Disability Management. 
Generations is a second home to me, and we can promise you will always be greeted with a smile, enjoy some laughs, and be welcomed into our family as one of our own.
