I hope to cultivate a physiotherapy experience unique to you. I try to provide care in a calm and supportive space where you can feel heard, cared for, and supported along your journey.
I was born and raised in the Ottawa Valley. I completed a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Master of Physical Therapy at Western University before moving to the West Coast and setting roots in Burnaby. With a long-standing love for the outdoors, taking on any physical challenge, and reaching for new heights, it was love at first mountain sighting. Both entrepreneurship and physiotherapy were strongly rooted in my upbringing as I looked up to my parents and the way they worked and lived. Through high school and university, I loved running my own business teaching one-on-one swimming lessons to children where I developed a love of sharing knowledge and movement exploration. I love the power in the human connection and ability to cultivate meaningful change one on one. As a physiotherapist, I started in an orthopaedic practice where I have worked with clients of all ages. Expanding my learning in pelvic health was first motivated by my personal curiosity to better understand hormonal changes for females in endurance athletics, as a marathon runner myself. I later needed the support of pelvic health services to optimize my own journey through pelvic cancer treatment. I had had to learn and appreciate first-hand the value of working with health practitioners you can trust, the need for personal advocacy in health care, and the importance of a biopsychosocial approach in pelvic health. Outside the clinic, you can find me all over the city logging miles on foot, climbing the North Shore mountains by bike, braving bouldering problems, or conquering rock climbing routes with my husband. I also enjoy sampling new coffee shops and exploring trails with my dog, Reese (yes, like the peanut butter cup!).
