After completing my undergrad at UVic in 2001, I went travelling and unfortunately suffered multiple ankle sprains while away. When I came home, I started treatment with a physiotherapist, Darren, at a clinic in White Rock. I was amazed by the depth of knowledge and the ability to truly help people achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. I was originally planning on heading into another health science field but I was inspired and started volunteering at the clinic to learn more. Within a year I was attending the University of Western Ontario Master of Physical Therapy program
