Biography

I graduated from the University of Alberta’s Physiotherapy program in 2001 after completing a Bachelor of Science degree. In addition to working for The Bridge, I have lived and worked for clinics in New York City and Toronto. I completed my Diploma of Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2010.

In addition to working in the clinic, teaching manual therapy and exercise courses to other physiotherapists is a passion of mine. I am an instructor with the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Assocation, and with New York-based Hands On Seminars. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach therapists in Canada, the U.S, South Africa, Turkey and India.

For me the keys to successful injury and pain recovery are integrating the appropriate manual therapy techniques with appropriate strengthening, movement and education. Finding the movement or muscle imbalance issues are critical to achieving lasting pain free function.

During my non-work time I enjoy being with my young family, traveling and staying active with strength training, running, soccer and volleyball. I’m still holding on to the dream of another Oilers Stanley Cup Championship in my lifetime.
