I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Masters of Science in Physical Therapy. Throughout my schooling, I worked at Sherwood Park Sports Physiotherapy as a physiotherapy assistant, which enabled me to gain work experience, apply knowledge, as well as reinforce my desire to become a Physiotherapist.
I understand that the health industry is ever changing, and as such, I continue to supplement my university education with additional courses. I am certified through Complete Concussion Management to treat and manage concussions and recently completed my Dry Needling certification. In my undergrad, I worked as a Certified Personal Trainer through CSEP, which gave me the opportunity to work with the Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Eskimos doing fitness testing. I’ve also spent many hours working and volunteering for other organizations such as the Running Room, the Steadward Centre, and Special Olympics Alberta.
I grew up doing competitive gymnastics, and while at university played for various recreational sports teams. In my spare time, I enjoy being active both indoors and outdoors and am always looking for the next adventure. I carry my passion for health, activity, and sport into my work – I believe with the right combination of education, rehab and determination, everybody can achieve a healthy lifestyle and return to doing the activities they love most.
