About me

I have been practicing physiotherapy for 30 years.  I love that our profession encourages continued learning.  I have had my own clinic in Chase since 1991. My area of focus is musculoskeletal conditions.  I have enjoyed raising my family in the rural area of Shuswap Lake and continue to share my passion for education with my children as they experience their own journeys with university and chosen careers.  From 1998 to 2010 I assisted and instructed in the CPA Orthopaedic Division courses, as well I continue as a clinical Instructor affiliated with the UBC Masters in Physiotherapy program.  In 2014 I completed my Masters in Clinical Science in Physiotherapy through Western Ontario University.

I enjoy mountain biking, snow shoeing, and spending time with my Icelandic horses (pictured above at 4 months old).
