Biography

I have always enjoyed sports such as biking, swimming, skiing, running and hiking and Vancouver is the place to be. While my love for adventure and travel took me around the world, my love for the “West coast” brought me back here. After working as a fitness trainer with both injured and healthy combat soldiers, and lifeguarding in my teens and through my University years my path to become a physiotherapist was inevitable. I currently holds a master of Physical Therapy from Queens University (2008), and a bachelor in Human Kinetics (Exercise Science) from UBC. My vast knowledge in anatomy and physiology and whole body approach looks at the immediate injured area as well as the root cause: My focus is on treating the immediate injury with the question of “Why it happened?. While some injuries occur due to impact, often injuries can cause and/or are caused by movement dysfunction, musculoskeletal imbalances, growing, and underlying genetic structure. My many years of private orthopaedic clinic experience as a physiotherapist has allowed me to develop techniques and philosophies in assessment and treatment approaches for acute and chronic musculoskeletal dysfunctions. My treatment approach combines client centred hands on manual therapy, and client empowerment through education, body awareness and rehabilitation exercises to help my client get back to their goals. Whether it be going for a stroll on the beach, playing with your grandkids, or preparing for the “iron man” I will try help to get you there. My area of expertise includes: Orthopaedic, neurological, post-op, and Sport rehabilitation with experience on Runners, swimmers, skiers, soccer players, rowers, and weekend worriers of all ages and athletic level. While I enjoy treating all body areas I have a special interest in: knees, ankles, shoulders, lumbosacral dysfunctions and TMJ. While I have additional certifications in Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy, Taping techniques, Myofascial releases, and therapeutic exercise, I believe that continuing education is the key to best practice as I am constantly growing my skill sets as my portfolio grows.
