Physiotherapy is the art of helping people restore function and regain their abilities to live their life with vitality
“I believe that injuries and pain are lessons. It teaches us more about ourselves and it’s how our bodies communicate with our brain. Movement has always been a form of medicine for our bodies and physiotherapy is the art of helping people restore function and regain their abilities to live their life.
I understand that feeling of being lost and overwhelmed after losing function but life doesn’t end there. I will help you understand the causes, treatment and prevention of injury. I hope to see you soon and guide you on your pathway to recovery! “
I have always been an active individual playing sports or working out and truly believe our bodies were designed to move. My interest in human anatomy and physiology peaked when I began my studies in Human Kinetics where I had the opportunity to work with professional sports teams. However, it wasn’t the high-performance training that sparked my interest, it was helping the injured athletes both physically and mentally get back to the sport.
Through my Masters in Physiotherapy from McMaster University, I gained a variety of experience working in cardio-respiratory, neurological and orthopaedic settings. My interest continued to develop in functional training, manual therapy and exercise re-education to ensure patients get back to living full healthy lives. My fascination in exercise science and physiotherapy continues to motivate me in finding the latest evidence-based practice. I was also honoured to have my own research published in the BMC journal for back pain in 2020.
I am a firm believer in ongoing education. Since graduating I have received certifications in Advanced Orthopaedic Manual Therapy, Acupuncture/Dry Needling and attended numerous mentorship workshops.
