MSc. Physical Therapy, University of Western Ontario (2019)
BSc(Honours)Human Kinetics, University of Ottawa (2016)
I am passionate about continued education as it is an important component to providing my clients with quality, evidence-based treatment. I currently have completed courses in:
● Orthopedic Division Manual Therapy- Level 1
● R2P Concussion Management: Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome
● R2P Concussion Management: Advanced Management of Post Concussion Syndrome
I plan to further develop my expertise in several areas including soft tissue release, acupuncture/dry needling and my manual therapy skills through the Orthopaedic Division’s manual therapy level system.
What I do around here:
Here at the clinic, I implement an individualized, evidence-based treatment approach that emphasizes hands-on manual therapy techniques, exercise prescription and education, in order to help clients maximize their function and allow them to take an active role in their care. I strive to help clients recover from injury and achieve their goals through effective communication strategies, evidence-informed practice and patient-goal centered care.
I became a Physiotherapist because:
Growing up, I was an avid athlete throughout my youth. I was a competitive sprinter on the track and field team in high school and became interested in weight lifting throughout university. With a passion for sport, as well as health and wellness, I became very interested in pursuing a career that focused on optimizing an individuals’ independence and quality of life.
My personal philosophy is:
As a promoter, preventer and rehabilitator within the health field, a collaborative
partnership between the patient and physiotherapist is essential to recovery. This
partnership is based on mutual goals and a shared understanding of the problem and recommended steps towards its management. Therefore, inspiring, innovating and empowering clients to take control in resolving their pain and optimizing movement is key to restoring optimal function and ultimately, preventing re-injury.
What I do for fun:
When I am not at the clinic treating clients, I can be found at the gym working on my strength and mobility, as I hope to one day compete in a fitness body-building show. During my spare time, I also enjoy going to the beach, exploring the city and watching oldie shows.
