MScPT, BSc Kin
I graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in 2010 and from the University of Saskatchewan in 2015 with a Masters of Physical Therapy. Since graduation from Physiotherapy I have continued to take courses to further my skills in manual therapy, orthopaedics, dry needling, pelvic health, pregnancy-related pelvic gridle pain, and diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA).
I treat a wide variety of orthopaedic and pelvic health conditions. Pelvic health conditions that can be assessed and managed by a pelvic health physiotherapist include: stress or urgency incontinence, prolapse, pelvic girdle pain, or any other pelvic pain condition. I also have a special interest in working with peri and postnatal women and have taken additional training in better treating and managing these women at this unique time in their lives.
I like to take a whole-person approach to treatment, looking at all bio, psycho and social factors that play into our pain experience. I believe that taking the time to hear a person's whole story and looking at them as a whole person, and then tailoring a treatment program that is specific to them will ultimately lead to the best outcomes.
I truly believe that exercise is medicine! My goal when working with clients is to provide them with the tools, through education and exercise, that will allow them to best self-manage their pain and/or injury and help them to reach their goals, whatever they may be.
My love for movement, and the human body with all its complexities, comes from my background as a dancer and dance teacher here in Calgary, and I have a special interest in working with dancers.
Currently, I enjoy staying active doing home based HIIT, yoga, hiking and biking with my family, and downhill skiing.
