My education began at Queen’s University where I completed a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Health and Physical Education. I continued my education at the University of Toronto where I completed a Master’s of Science in Exercise Physiology in 2005. Following, I earned a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from McMaster University in 2007. After working in private practice orthopedics I chose to advance my Physical Therapy training by completing a Masters in Clinical Science Manipulative Therapy from the University of Western Ontario in 2010. I have also completed contemporary medical acupuncture training through the McMaster University Acupuncture Program. I am a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and member of the Orthopedic Division. I am also a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT). rnrnI have successfully treated a variety of injuries including lower back disorders, postural dysfunction, as well as acute and chronic sports injuries. My treatment style includes using a manual hands-on approach as well as acupuncture and personal exercise programs. This approach to treatment addresses the underlying dysfunction that may be causing injury and prevents future re-injury. I believe in a patient centered approach; by directly involving each patient in their recovery through goal setting, balancing muscle dysfunction and teaching self-management techniques optimal recovery is achieved. rnrnI am committed to lifelong learning having taken numerous post-graduate courses including functional training, mobilizations with movement, recent advances in hip rehabilitation, and running specialist; including gait assessment and barefoot running. Further, I have attended numerous courses offered through the Advanced Physical Therapy Institute. While I continue to pursue post-graduate courses in order to offer the latest and most effective treatments I am also a committed leader within the Physiotherapy profession. Since 2009 I have been a clinical lab facilitator at the University of Toronto. I am also a clinical supervisor for students during their final clinical internship. Finally, I provide mentorship for Physiotherapists who are completing the manual therapy levels through the Orthopedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. During my time outside of the clinic I am a loving and proud mother. I enjoy running, having completed two marathon and numerous ½ marathons. I lift weights regularly, bike, and practice Pilates. I also enjoy cooking, wine tasting, and adventure travel.
