Biography

As a former varsity volleyball player and athletic trainer for Queen’s University, I understand the importance of treating and preventing injuries from both a personal and clinical perspective. My drive to help others coupled with a passion for sports and athletics has built the foundation of my professional career as a physiotherapist. I believe my role is to work with my patients to create a treatment plan that is specific to their needs and lifestyle. My goal is to maximize recovery to allow patients to return to their favourite sport, hobby, or work, and prevent the recurrence of injury.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

As a former varsity volleyball player and athletic trainer for Queen’s University, I understand the importance of treating and preventing injuries from both a personal and clinical perspective. My drive to help others coupled with a passion for sports and athletics has built the foundation of my professional career as a physiotherapist. I believe my role is to work with you to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and lifestyle. My goal is to maximize your recovery to return to your favourite sport, hobby, or work, and prevent the recurrence of injury.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

My treatment plans incorporate a combination of hands-on techniques, education, and exercise prescription to reduce pain and optimize function. I also offer additional skills and knowledge in acupuncture, concussion management, vestibular rehabilitation, taping, manual therapy, and non-internal pelvic floor physiotherapy.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases! Anything from musculoskeletal injuries/disorders, to post-concussion management and vestibular rehabilitation. I treat patients of all ages, including pediatric and geriatric cases, as well as patients of all activity levels.
