What I do around here:

I work exclusively in the IN-HOME Division of Apollo PTC, seeing complex MVA clients.

I became a Physiotherapist because:

I enjoy helping people achieve their maximal abilities.

My personal philosophy is:

Try to be as active as your body allows and enjoy life. Exercise can be as simple as walking the dog to playing competitive sports. Everyone can do something.

What I do for fun:

I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my dog and being active.

What I do around here:

I prescribe, progress, and regress exercise programs as well as teach correct movement techniques to help others recover, stay mobile, and injury free. I also apply treatment modalities such as thermotherapy, cryotherapy, TENS, STIM, IFC, ultrasound, and taping.

I became an Exercise Specialist because:

I am passionate about interacting and learning from others, and love being able to see people reach their full potential and live with good quality of life through exercise and physical activity!

My personal philosophy is:

Get to know the person, not just the patient.

What I do for fun:

I enjoy activities that allow me to spend time with my wife and two daughters.  Riding on the bike trails of Ottawa, playing golf, hockey and soccer are just a few of the things that keep me active.  As well, spending a few days at the gym working on strength and aerobic conditioning allow me to stay fit and keep pace with my active children.  With very little down time, I occasionally like to spend a quiet night at home watching a movie or playing the Wii.
