I care about getting you better and helping you feel your best!
With every patient, I strive to get to the root of your issue, to resolve it efficiently, and to prevent you from suffering the same issue again in the future.
I am a Physiotherapist, a Certified Yoga Instructor and a life-long learner. I am passionate about understanding how the body works in all its complexity, and believe in treating the body as a whole. I took my first yoga class in 2013 to try a new "workout", and was soon hooked because of all the other benefits yoga offers – the mind body connection can be a powerful tool to promote healing.
I have a thirst for knowledge and constantly work at improving my physiotherapy expertise. After completing a Bachelor of Science at the University of Waterloo (2006) and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy at the University of Toronto (2009), I went on to complete a Master of Clinical Science in Advanced Healthcare Practice, from Western University in 2015, becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). Prior to that, I completed a yearlong course titled the “Integrated Systems Model”, an approach that treats the body as a whole and looks at how areas far from your site of injury or pain can impact your recovery. I have also completed courses in acupuncture, Integrated Dry Needling (CIDN), and the McKenzie Method, a system of diagnosis and treatment that emphasizes patient empowerment and self-treatment.
Not only do I love my rewarding clinical work and direct patient care, I also truly enjoy teaching. Since becoming a physiotherapist, I have filled numerous teaching and mentoring roles for the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and am an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Toronto in the Master of Science in Physiotherapy Program, where I was once a student.
I aim to live an active lifestyle, moving and getting outdoors as often as possible. I love to cook and eat whole nutritious food, and connecting with family and friends is a priority. My current motto is “move, nature, nourish, sleep, connect” and so far it is serving me well!
