As a young, multisport athlete with numerous injuries I was unintentionally drawn to physical therapy. After receiving treatment myself I recognized how this career would easily allow me to combine all of my health related passions.
This led me to begin my post-secondary education in my hometown of Fort McMurray at Keyano College. There, I played volleyball for two years where I gained valuable knowledge around competitive sport and team dynamics. To complete my degree, I transferred to the University of British Columbia – Okanagan campus and graduated with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics. Soon after, I completed the Masters of Physical Therapy program at the University of Alberta.
I use an active treatment approach by incorporating manual therapy with a strong emphasis on exercise prescription. My treatment programs are guided by client goals and are tailored so they can be integrated into daily life and enjoyable.
I strive to have every client reach beyond their pre-injury baseline while providing them with the tools to create resilience to future injury.
Through clinical experience, I have found that a main interest of mine currently lies with sports related injuries. I enjoy working with athletes of all ages, competitive level and sport of choice.
I am also passionate about pelvic health and raising awareness on its importance for many individuals.
In my free time, you’ll find me socializing with friends or family, trying new local restaurants and cafes or doing something active. While I usually like to sweat by lifting weights, I recently ran my first half marathon and this year I plan to start road biking!
