MEET THE TEAM
MScPT, Level III Upper and Lower Quadrant Manual Therapy certifications through the Canadian Physiotherapy Orthopedic Division; Certified in Biomedical Dry Needling
Growing up in a small town (Enchant, Alberta) groomed me for a life filled with sports- baseball, basketball, badminton, dance, volleyball and the list goes on! I was always active, and enjoyed being outdoors, and because of that ended up needing a lot of physical therapy in the process. Volleyball ended up being the sport I pursued, and was fortunate to compete at the provincial, national, and eventually collegiate level at the University of Calgary where I obtained my Bachelor's degree. I have been working as a physiotherapist in Lethbridge since I graduated from University of Alberta with a Master’s in Physiotherapy in the fall of 2015, and have since completed many other postgraduate certifications including manual therapy and dry needling. These days my interests include hiking, biking, running, lifting weights, and spending time with my husband, daughter and extended family.
I consider my treatment to be exercise and movement focused, with a strong manual therapy component to help you reach your movement goals. Although I do have a special interest in the athletic population, anyone that is motivated to reach their movement and fitness goals are my specialty.
MPT, Level III Upper and Lower quadrants courses of the Canadian Physiotherapies Orthopaedic Division; Certified to practice Chan Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS).
I began my post-secondary education at UBC where I obtained my Bachelors in Human Kinetics with a focus on exercise science. I completed a Masters degree in physiotherapy in 2008 from the University of Alberta, and have completed a number of post-graduate physiotherapy courses.
I specialize in manual therapy, orthopaedics, workplace health, and sports injuries. I have worked in private practice clinics for most entire career. Although I have worked predominantly in the Vancouver area before arriving in Lethbridge, my career took me to London, England. His position in London was unique as he was treating staff members on-site at two large hospitals and at Harrods Department store. As part of this job, I performed job site evaluations, ergonomic assessments, and assessed and treated staff members.
When I am not working, I enjoy running, skiing, travelling and spending time with my wife and two young daughters.
