As a born & raised Calgarian, I have been lucky enough to have the Canadian Rockies as a cornerstone my entire life. I was a Nordic skier as soon as I could walk and dragged in a pulk through trails in the mountains prior to that. My passion for physiotherapy began with an odd injury sustained in grade school gym class that landed me in the hands of the rehabilitation team. Over my long recovery, I was coached through the ups and downs by my physiotherapist. Immediately I knew this was the career for me.
I began my studies at the University of Calgary obtaining my BSc in Kinesiology with distinction before being accepted to the MScPT program at the University of Alberta. As I progressed through the program, I developed a keen interest in low back pain & completed all 3 levels of the McGill Method to advance my clinical skillset.
Outside of work, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast. Throughout the seasons I partake in rock, alpine, and ice climbing along with mountaineering, backcountry ski touring, and Nordic skiing. I believe my experience within these broad disciplines grants me an excellent perspective into injury prevention, management, and high-level performance. I strive to provide an individually tailored approach to your treatment. You will be greeted with a thorough assessment and an evidence-based, active solution to return you to doing the things you love.
Being a bit of a bookworm, I try to keep up with the latest physiotherapy research to provide leading-edge, high-quality treatments to my patients. To consolidate my knowledge and make educational information accessible to patients, I have an Instagram account to summarize physiotherapy literature (@alpine.physio). Check it out!
I hope to see you at Fix Physio soon so we can put together a plan, work on your goals, and begin your journey to recovery.
