Watching Olympics, figure skating and gymnastics on television as a child created a fascination with how the human body moves...35 years later, I'm still fascinated, and continue to enjoy the challenge of helping it move better for my clients through physiotherapy!

My 97 year old great aunt is a constant source of inspiration. Having had multiple knee replacements, she gets on her stationary bicycle every morning and does 30 minutes of pedalling as she knows this makes all the difference in the world to her ability to walk to the bathroom or down to the dining hall for her meals. I try to draw on her strength and determination in motivating my clients as well in my own life, and in achieving my own goals.

After finishing up my undergraduate degree at UBC, I had no idea what I wanted to be! So, like any recent graduate facing the world, I decided to plunge right in and travel. From South America to Europe to Asia, I had the good fortune to explore the world, gain valuable experiences, and work a number of jobs to perpetually feed my travel bug. When it was all said and done, I was still left with the task of figuring out what I was going to do with my life.

When I was in junior high, my grandfather had a stroke and refused to have physiotherapy treatment. That was my first time hearing the word "physiotherapy" and it intrigued and motivated me alot that I ended up taking physiotherapy when I went to college. Upon graduation I volunteered to help children with cerebral palsy and witnessed how physiotherapy can be of tremendous help in terms of mobility and flexibility issues. I think it's the caring part of me that continues to drive my passion in helping others reach their potential physically.

Like many others, my first experience with physiotherapy was receiving treatment for various sports injuries. After becoming a physiotherapist I became a manual therapist and started working in Women’s Health with pregnant and postpartum women.  I developed a particular passion for working with women with pelvic girdle pain. I now work exclusively with women with persistent pelvic pain. I am continually inspired by these women; their struggle to manage simple day to day tasks can be heartbreaking but their courage and determination to make difficult changes is inspiring in itself.

I have always loved the learning and teaching dynamic, in a classroom setting as well as in individual interactions. My passion for health, the human body, and my understanding of the balance we all need in life to function properly means that physiotherapy is the perfect profession for me! I learn as much from my patients as I hope they learn from me. It is a joy to facilitate the body's inherent ability to heal, to empower people and to educate them on how their amazing body moves best and how to prevent injury.

Everyone wants the best for their families. I was initiially inspired to become a physiotherapist so that I could help my parents as best I could as they aged.  I see a bit of my parents in a great many of my patients I treat, and I attempt to treat every patient like one of my family members.
