A little about me:

I was born and raised in the Fraser Valley to a Canadian father and Trinidadian mother. I spent much of my childhood as a competitive dancer, and 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 at UBC, which opened my eyes to what scoliosis-specific treatment looked like and how important physiotherapy was in the management of scoliosis.

What to expect in a session with me:

I enjoy providing as many “tools” as possible to the client so that they can be independent in their management through exercise, education, and pain-management strategies. I approach problem-solving with curiosity and humility. I love that our sessions at The ScoliClinic are longer in duration than average Physiotherapy appointments, which allows us time to incorporate your passions (dance, sports, other specific activities) into treatment to make it more unique and meaningful to you.
