A little about me:
I was born and raised in the lower mainland of BC, and was diagnosed with scoliosis at age nine. I wore a brace for three years until I was told I would require corrective spinal fusion surgery at age 13. After two years on the surgical waitlist, I finally at received the operation at age 15. While I remained active and healthy throughout the course of my treatment, I wasn’t ever aware of options for me to actively participate in my treatment. After graduating from UBC, I discovered my passion for supporting others through their journeys with scoliosis.
What to expect in a treatment session with me:
I utilize both my formal training and personal experience to support clients in reaching their goals and independently managing their health & well-being. My practice is largely movement-based, and I develop exercise plans to be unique to each person, their curve/spine, and their personal needs. I consider myself to be energetic yet calm, and you’ll likely receive a lot of encouragement from me as I want to empower you to actively care for yourself.
I strive to create an inclusive practice so that each client and their family members feel welcomed, seen, and heard. Your opinions and preferences about your treatment really matter, as your level of emotional comfort and safety are important to me.
