Registered Physiotherapist

  • PT, BA, MAT, MPT

I’ve spent my entire life involved in athletics, from competing at the NCAA and CWHL levels in ice hockey, to working as a coach, strength coach and athletic director at a private high school. And my passions have always remained on the playing field. A competitive nature and willingness to "try anything" sports related can come with a toll on your body. I learned very early in my career that both preparation and rehab were crucial to keeping me on the playing field. Watching, learning and working with a variety of brilliant and compassionate healthcare professionals, inspired my own journey into a career in physiotherapy. It’s just as the saying goes: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

My approaches to life and work are centered around balance, whether it's the constant battle to even out the chocolate-covered almonds with a salad, or the complexities of the human body. As a physiotherapist I work to restore balance between the body's interconnected systems, muscles and movement strategies. No matter if it's from a recent injury, or years of repetitive strain, the goal is always to return to the activities that you love. 

When I’m not at the clinic, I’m often biking, walking my dog Dolly (Parton) around Leslieville, or getting active on a snowboard or nordic skis. And I’m probably sneaking a chocolate-covered almond or two.
