Biography

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, sports and the outdoors have always been my passion. I have grown up skiing and hiking the local mountains, and have practiced Physio in Whistler, catering specifically to skiing and snowboarding injuries. Yoga, cycling and running are my regular hobbies. Having completed marathons, triathlons and many cycling events, I am experienced in treating the common injuries associated with these sports. My interest lies in manual therapy. I have successfully completed an advanced diploma in this area, which consisted of 5 additional years of specific coursework and continuous study, followed by a rigorous exam process. As such, I am a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). I was also a certified trainer for the Canadian Navy. My goal is to optimize individual well-being, by helping people understand the cause of their pain, and educating them on how to correct it. I work with all sectors of the population, catering to the general public and athletes. I focus on postural correction techniques that are common to work related neck and back pain, motor vehicle accidents, as well as those related to athletic training. My treatments are based on a range of manual therapy techniques, including mobilizations and manipulations, soft tissue release and Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS / dry needling), to restore joint and muscle function. This is combined with exercise therapy to prevent recurrence of injury.
