Registered Physiotherapist (WPO)
Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT)
Myofascial Release Practitioner
Working with my hands and interacting with people were always career goals for me. Becoming a physiotherapist and developing treatment plans to aid clients as they recover from injury and return to activity is immensely fulfilling. I feel very lucky to be doing something I find so rewarding.
Always active athletically, I’ve sustained numerous injuries over the years. As a result, I’ve been under the care of no fewer than ten different physiotherapists, one of whom suggested I pursue physiotherapy as a career myself—and the rest is history. I love my work and I’m excited to come to work in the stimulating environment of The Sports Clinic every day.
After completing a Life Sciences degree at Queen’s University, I acquired my BSc in Physiotherapy from the University of Western Ontario in 1997. In 2002, I obtained a Certificate in Intermediate Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy. Then, in 2006, I received my Diploma in Manipulative Physiotherapy, becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT).
In the last five years, I have taken several courses in the John F. Barnes approach to Myofascial Release. These courses have significantly altered my method of practice focusing on the fascial restrictions that are the root cause of pain in many patients. I fuse my knowledge as a Manipulative Physiotherapist with Myofascial Release to achieve “Authentic Healing.”
