Biography

I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, and graduated from the University of Alberta in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (with distinction). In 2019, I was accepted into the Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy program at the U of A.

Throughout high school I played competitive soccer, and it was here that I was exposed to the field of physical therapy through recurrent knee and ankle injuries. While I continued to play recreational soccer throughout my years of university, it was in my fourth year that I began weight training. This has since become a passion of mine, and further drove my interest in exercise, rehabilitation, and performance.

My treatment style reflects this passion by combining exercise with education and manual therapy to achieve optimal outcomes in rehabilitation and injury prevention. I aim to help my patients go beyond their baseline and improve their performance in the activities that are important to them. I enjoy working as a team with my patients, taking a collaborative approach and encouraging an active role in the rehabilitation journey.

Outside of the clinic, you can find me hitting the weights at the gym, hiking up or snowboarding down a mountain, climbing at the bouldering gym, or hanging out with friends!
