not accepting new clients at this time
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age nine, and wore a brace for the following seven years. Throughout this process, my family and I were consistently frustrated with the limited therapy options available and consequently the lack of control over the progression of my curve.
I work at The ScoliClinic because I want to provide reassurance to my clients by providing education, and by being an example of how my scoliosis significantly affected my life for the better. After all, my personal experience with scoliosis is what drove me to pursue a career in Physiotherapy.
I do this work to positively impact teens with scoliosis who are experiencing unique, but similar challenges to those I faced. For my adult clients, I love sharing education about their spines, and connecting adults with each other for emotional support.
My Scoliosis-focused practice is strengthened by the following certifications:
- Kinetacore Functional Dry Needling – Level 2 – November 2018
- Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School – C1 – November 2016
- Kinetacore Functional Dry Needling – Level 1 – August 2016
- UBC Master of Physical Therapy, 2015
Each day, I look forward to the new challenges that encourage me to grow. From unique client circumstances, to mind-bending questions from fellow therapists, I appreciate all aspects of my work and am thankful for the many opportunities for personal and professional development.
