As a natural born go-getter, my passion has continuously driven me to expand my knowledge, experience, and relationships. This lead me to become an internationally trained manual physiotherapist and Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (From UBC) practitioner. Having completed a Masters of Rehabilitation Science in Glasgow, United Kingdom, I also hold a Honours Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics from University of Guelph and currently am attaining a 5 year certification in Osteopathic Manual Practice from the oldest Osteopathic College in Canada, The Canadian Osteopathic College of Canada (CCO). In addition to typical physiotherapeutic approaches, manual therapy, manipulation, cupping, dry needling (GIMS), exercise prescription and education, I have a unique holistic approach which may include team work with a network of therapists. What complex problem have you ever solved with just one person's perspective?
