I graduated with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in 2007 and a Masters of Science (MSc) in Physical
Therapy in 2010 from the University of Alberta. Since then, I have worked in private practice in Edmonton,
St. Albert, and Sherwood Park. I am currently working in South Edmonton at Thrive Therapy and North
Edmonton at Revive Spine + Sport. I have experience treating a variety of musculoskeletal injuries from
“weekend warriors” and post-MVC to high-level athletes.
I have a special interest in treating vertigo, dizziness, motion/visual sensitivity, and balance issues. I
received advanced training in New York City and Los Angeles with the leading experts in the field of
Vestibular Therapy. I also have significant experience working with Post Concussion Syndrome and have
recently completed my certification in CCMI (Complete Concussion Management).
I am passionate about advancing my physical therapy skills in order to allow my patients to achieve their
physiotherapy goals. I have taken several manual therapy courses as well as courses in the Prevention of
Running Injuries, Chronic Disease Management, and Cancer CARE. With the Acupuncture Foundation of
Canada Institute, I have completed courses in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and received advanced
training in Medical Acupuncture. I am also certified through the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of
Medicine program in GunnIMS. I’ve always considered myself a hands-on and visual learner. Repetition
has been key to my success in learning.
I enjoy being an active member in both my local and international community. In 2014, I volunteered as an
Associate Clinician with World Spine Care in Botswana. At the Shoshong clinic and Mahalapye Hospital, I
worked with an interdisciplinary team to assess and treat MSK conditions. In 2015, I continued my travels
to Tanzania, where I was the Clinic Director of the Rehabilitative Medicine Department at the Kanyama
Dispensary with Global Peace Network. I assisted in setting up the initial MSK program, planned and
implemented community health/wellness events, and treated various MSK disorders. In the summer of
2017, I returned to Tanzania not only as a physio, but as a photographer. My initiative was to promote
Global Peace Network’s continued efforts to improve the quality of healthcare in Tanzania and raise
awareness of this program to sponsors and other Healthcare Practitioners willing to volunteer their time.
I have an amazing, tight-knit family who have always been supportive of my endeavours. With my older
brother being a family physician, my sister-in-law being a nurse, and my significant other, Shayne, being a
chiropractor, the medical talk runs deep at our dinners. Myself and Shayne consider ourselves the “body
mechanics” of the family.
I have a photography business, Living Proofs, which has allowed me to combine my passions for travelling,
photography, and outdoor activities. Mountains fuel my soul. Any chance I get I head to the Rockies. In
the summer I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cycling, and walking our dog, Obi. In the winter, snowboarding is my
passion. Year-round my “go-to” activities in Edmonton are boxing, running, hitting the gym, and slowing it
down with some yoga.
