She is pursuing her Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy & completing her Diploma in Advanced Orthopaedic Manual & Manipulative Physiotherapy and is also certified in Acupuncture and IMS.

She has experience working with a wide variety of clients and injuries, and enjoys treating people of all ages. She incorporates a range of internationally recognized manual therapy techniques, individualized exercise prescription and education to help clients achieve their physical activity and movement goals.
