I have always had a passion for movement. I grew up tobogganing down the hills of Riverdale Park and eating cheese pies on the Danforth on my way home from school. I spent a lot of my time riding subway trains to soccer fields and volleyball practices, and have always had the desire to create with, learn from and motivate those around me. This naturally led me to the world of exercise science, sports medicine and physiotherapy, and I feel so lucky each day to love what I do.
The connections between the many complex systems of the body have always amazed me. I am thankful to have studied with many teachers in a variety of settings, including my patients and their stories. I use an integrated, individualized approach, and have found that my strength is in breaking down what can sometimes seem like a complex and overwhelming amount of information, into simple, manageable terms. I listen, educate, and collaborate with my patients to get them moving forward, whatever that looks like for them.
Outside of [mend]physio, I am the lead therapist for Volleyball Canada's beach national team, and enjoy traveling, running, and wandering Toronto’s many neighbourhoods.
