Growing up as a competitive dancer, I dealt with back pain and other injuries that have affected me as an adult – this made me value physical therapy and its ability to provide and restore physical mobility and independence. My own experience of injuries and rehabilitation lead me to pursue a career in physiotherapy, to gain a further understanding as to why these injuries occur, and how to prevent and heal them.

I discovered The ScoliClinic while completing my Master’s of Physical Therapy, which opened my eyes to what scoliosis-specific treatment looked like and how important physiotherapy was in the management of scoliosis. I look forward to helping those with scoliosis through a combination of education, exercise, and scoliosis-specific treatment methods.
