A little about me:
Born and raised in Kitimat, BC to Filipino immigrant parents, I grew up in a diverse environment with peers and family friends from many different cultural backgrounds. I was raised to value community and contribution, and am highly aware of the opportunity that living in Canada has afforded me.
After completing my Physiotherapy schooling at UBC, I entered the workforce as a general pediatric physiotherapist at Kids Physio Group, and became fascinated with scoliosis. Further exploration into the medical system exposed a huge gap in conservative management in the lower mainland for kids, teens, and adults with scoliosis and other structural spinal conditions, so I sought further training in the Schroth Method and have now dedicated my whole career to scoliosis by developing dedicated services through The ScoliClinic in Canada, and The Scoliosis Collective in Australia.
I’m a Schroth-certified physiotherapist who believes in arming families with the knowledge and skills to support you and your child in the best way possible. As one of the owners, I’ve dedicated my time to evolving our company’s processes and offerings to meet (and hopefully exceed) our staff and clients’ needs.
I believe in lifelong learning, and am constantly thinking about how to integrate this information into our practice and bring the newest research to the families of British Columbia. Here are some of my Physiotherapy certifications:
- ISICO’s S.E.A.S. Level 2 – February 2018
- Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School – C2 (Advanced) – June 2016
- ISICO’s S.E.A.S. Level 1 – January 2016
- Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School – C1 (Basic) – February 2015
- Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) Member
- UBC Master of Physical Therapy, 2011
I have a deep interest in the intersection between philosophy, entrepreneurship, self-exploration, and health leadership. I also have a passion for global health work, which I hope to and coordinated a 5-month project in rural South India just prior to opening The ScoliClinic.
If you have questions or concerns about the leadership/business philosophies or processes behind any of The ScoliClinic’s policies or services, please do reach out to me directly.
