Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist
Medical Acupuncture Provider
I love the clinical reasoning that goes into finding and treating the source of a client’s problem. I enjoy helping people heal and contributing to the attainment of their goals, whether those be participating in an elite athletic event, returning to exercise after having a child, or simply being able to walk around the block.
As a past competitive athlete, I’ve experienced many injuries firsthand. Seeing physiotherapists from a young age made me appreciate the hands-on approach of the profession. I enjoy working with the other clinicians at The Sports Clinic to address all aspects of the patient’s health – physical, psychological/emotional, nutritional, etc.
I hold a BSc in Kinesiology from McMaster University and an MSc in Physiotherapy from Queens University. I have taken courses in advanced manual therapy and acupuncture and am a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy, earning a Diploma of Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2015. Driven by a passion for treating the “Whole” person, I have taken several courses in visceral manipulation and cranial sacral therapy. Most recently, I have pursued extensive course work in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy to further help my chronic low back and hip pain patients. These courses also opened up my eyes to treating other Pelvic Floor Dysfunctions, such as incontinence, prolapse, and male and female pelvic pain. I have developed a special passion for this population – doing what I can to educate people about pelvic floor issues and break the taboo of talking about problems ‘down there’.
