Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT)
Medical Acupuncture Provider
I have spent the last 25 years of my life learning the “science” and the “art” of manual physical medicine. Being a hands-on manual physiotherapist, osteopathic practitioner and acupuncture provider, I have learned that the keys to success is spending quality time and being extremely thorough when assessing and treating patients. “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” is one of my mottos in finding the underlying causation of patient’s symptoms. Being a health care provider is one of the best professions in the world, it is an immensely rewarding experience and I get to do it every day of my life.
After completing my undergraduate degree (B.A), I acquired a Health Science degree specializing in Physiotherapy (BHSc PT), both from McMaster University. I am a Fellow of both the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapist (FCAMPT) and the International Federation of Manipulative Physiotherapists (IFOMPT). In addition, I am a certified Medical Acupuncture Practitioner (AFCI) and hold a diploma of Osteopathy (DO) from the Académie Sutherland d’Ostéopathie du Quebec.
From a teaching perspective, I have a clinical mentorship with the University of Toronto facilitating clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis with medical residents and physiotherapy students. I also take great pride in participating in the lost art of human cadaveric dissection through the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Human Dissection Experience (CAM HDE) at Queen’s University.
My current educational endeavours are focusing on integrating traditional Chinese medicine, functional medicine, functional neurology, neuro- immunology and the science of embryology (human form and function). With over twenty five years in the health care field, being a lifelong learner is part of who I am.
