Registered Physiotherapist, MSc PT, MSc Kin, BSc Kin
My passion is helping people feel, move, and perform their best. I help patients of all ages, recover from injury; from daily aches and pains to major life-altering injury, have a more pain free life, return to sport, or get back to doing the things that they love to do.
I use an evidence driven approach that combines latest scientific research and clinic experience that goes beyond symptom management and addresses movement, nutrition, and lifestyle factors. I understand that no single approach works for every individual, therefore I have trained in many methods that can be uniquely tailored to you in order to get you the most effective results.
Since graduating physical therapy, I have completed training in manual therapy, strength and conditioning, and the Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (McKenzie method). In addition, I am a certified Pain Truth provider through the Pain Truth Program, a Precision Nutrition Coach, and am qualified to assess and treat concussions through Complete Concussion Management, the gold standard in concussion care.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from University of Western Ontario, a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from McGill University, and a master’s degree in Physical Therapy from McGill. During University studies, I played Varsity lacrosse therefore I understand the demands of sport and can bridge the gap between rehabilitation and performance.
When I’m not in the clinic, you can find me drinking coffee, reading a book, sweating at the gym, or enjoying the great outdoors.
