I graduated from Queens University at Kingston Ontario in 1986 with a B.Sc. in Physical Therapy.

My thesis examined upper trapezius motor control impairments post whiplash and is available on the Simon Fraser University Library website. In the early part of my career I worked in acute neurology at the Royal Jubilee in Victoria and with inpatients and outpatients at our provincial rehab centre GF Strong Centre for 4 years with adults with complex neurological and neuromusculoskeletal disorders including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, strokes and people with other traumatic injuries. I have worked in a variety of private practices in the Lower Mainland since 1992, most recently at West 4th Physiotherapy Clinic since 2008. I am also a registered mentor in the Canadian Physiotherapy Orthopaedic Division Curriculum, where I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge, mentoring other physiotherapists and learning from them since 2003. I have participated in many continuing education courses including muscle imbalance, therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, Thoracic Ring ApproachTM, Connect TherapyTM, acupuncture, IMS, concussion management and vestibular courses. I have a particular interest in malalignment, biomechanics, motor control, concussion management and pain.
In 2018, I completed the ConnectTherapy Series (Parts 1-3) and in 2019, I completed Connect Therapy Part 4. I am finding this approach to be a great complement to my current practice.
