I graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor of science in human physiology and physics in 1988. Taking my interest in physics and physiology to the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine, I went on to complete my degree in physical therapy in 1992. I received my credentials in mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the spine in 1999 through the McKenzie Institute International. I received my certificate in acupuncture from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute in 1997. Postgraduate studies have included extensive work in manual therapy, proprioceptive and kinesio taping, craniomandibular disorders, M.E.T. (medical exercise therapy) and the treatment of golf related injuries. I received my post-professional doctorate in physical therapy from EIM Institute of Health Professions, KY, USA.
A highlight in my career was being voted "Best Physiotherapist" by readers of the local News Advertiser, an affirmation that I was providing a good service. I've of course been a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy association since 1992, belonging to the orthopaedic, sports physiotherapy and private practice divisions. My primary area of clinical interest lies in orthopaedic conditions, sports injuries, and motor vehicle accident injuries.
I've had the good fortune of working with athletes, both competitive and recreational in hockey, soccer, swimming, rugby, baseball, rowers, triathletes, skiers, snowboarders, and runners. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and resources to contribute the health and wellbeing of all.
