Why do I love my work? Because of the opportunities.
Receiving a diagnosis of scoliosis at age 13 spurred many unanswered questions for my family and I. Many years later, while on a Physiotherapy practicum, I attended a presentation by The ScoliClinic team which sparked a realization that Physiotherapy plays an important role in the management of scoliosis. It was an easy decision to undergo Scoliosis-specific training.
At The ScoliClinic, I love the opportunity I have to create connections with people of all ages who have scoliosis. I witness empowering moments, where clients transform anxiety into confidence, which allows them to participate in meaningful activities and live their best lives. It’s a privilege to be a part of someone’s long-term journey with scoliosis.
I love the opportunity for endless learning. Our team encourages each other to grow, and I’m expanding my understanding of scoliosis as a condition, and of myself as a person. By deepening my self-awareness, I’m able to provide a higher level of holistic care of my clients.
Lastly, being part of The ScoliClinic team allows me to be a part of a bigger cause, as I feel that my work is contributing to the improved management of scoliosis in our corner of the world.
