About me

After graduating from McMaster University I worked for 2 years in Guelph Ontario and then moved to the East Kootenay's where I have been working for the past 5 years. I am currently the co-owner of Creekside Physiotherapy Clinic in Kimberley.  Clinically I'm interested in treating all orthopaedic injuries with a particular interest in vestibular rehabilitation and concussion treatment. Apart from working as a physiotherapist I'm happily married to my wife Joanna (also a physio) and enjoy spending as much time as I can with our little girl Ruby. We participate in triathlons and run when we get the chance. We both completed Ironman Canada in 2009 and enjoy travelling.
