A little bit about me:
I grew up in Langley on the traditional territories of the Tsawwassen, Kwantlen, and Stó:lō First Nations. From a young age, it was hard for me to sit still when I could be running, biking, swimming, or frolicking outside. Channeling my energy into an activity that I loved, I joined the Langley Flippers Swim Team at the age of five. I continued to swim competitively and played club volleyball until I graduated high school. Living such an active life, I appreciated having access to physiotherapists, who helped me overcome my injuries to get back into the pool or onto the court.
After I completed my Bachelor of Kinesiology in Exercise Science at the University of the Fraser Valley in 2014, I worked as a Kinesiologist at an aquatic rehabilitation centre, which was fuelled by my love for the pool. In pursuit of a more specialized career, I moved to Saskatoon to complete a Master of Science and a Master of Physical Therapy at the University of Saskatchewan.When I was 12, after my parents noticed a curve in my spine while I was swimming, I was diagnosed with mild scoliosis. At that time, my doctor could not offer any specific recommendations or treatments—all we were told was to keep an eye on the curve and to return for further assessment if it progressed. When I first heard about the ScoliClinic, I was ecstatic to learn that there is a place where people of all ages can go to learn about their scoliosis and treatment options to optimize their health and well-being.
What to expect in a treatment session with me:
Scoliosis involves more than just our spine or body, which is why I take a holistic approach in my sessions. I prioritize taking the time to learn about your goals, experiences, needs, and concerns, so that we can work together to develop a treatment approach that best suits you and your lifestyle. I am eager to support, encourage, and empower you in your life’s journey with scoliosis.
