I have experience treating a variety of clients from the injured athlete to the office worker, having worked many years in rehabilitation clinics. I tailor the treatment by assessing client symptoms, posture, and pain patterns. In addition to treating an injured area or area of pain, I look at the entire body as a whole and treat other areas that have been affected by compensating.

My treatment style consists mostly of deep tissue, active release techniques, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and cupping. I will sometimes integrate essential oils to assist in reducing client symptoms on a cellular level across many areas such as muscle pain/tension, headaches/migraines, respiratory conditions, digestive issues, anxiety, etc.

Continued Studies: Active Release Technique (ART) (Upper & Lower Extremities), Contemporary Cupping Techniques, Body Regeneration Methods (Level 1 & 2), AromaTouch Technique, Symphony of the Cells.

I was born and raised in the beautiful coastal town of Lockeport, Nova Scotia where a sense of community is very strong.

I have a thorough understanding of how the body works and an ability to problem solve through injury review and pain pattern analysis. Listening and empathizing with my clients allow me to identify the best treatment type and provide excellent results. My Kinesiology degree, from U of T, adds another layer of technique to the massage therapy. I have also taken courses to further specialize in deep tissue therapeutic massage, such as fascial therapy and scar tissue release.

Having worked in physiotherapy, pain, and rehabilitation clinics, I know the different pain relief solutions. I offer targeted treatments to achieve fast and effective results, while providing suggestions to maintain long-lasting results.   

Continued Studies: Fascial Distortion Model, Scar Tissue Techniques, Manual Therapy and Orthopaedic Massage for Lower and Upper Body Conditions.

I graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College earning my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, after obtaining an Honours specialization degree in Kinesiology, with a minor in Health Sciences from the University of Western Ontario. I then obtained a subsequent certification in Functional Integrative Acupuncture from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.

I have always been involved in health and athletics at the recreational, performance and rehabilitation levels. Over the years, my experience in training and treating a wide variety of conditions helped establish a strong passion for healthy movement. With a background in swimming and gymnastics, I strongly believe in the benefits of movement, strength, and flexibility for living a healthy lifestyle.

To facilitate each patients’ return to optimal function as quickly and effectively as possible, I apply an evidence-informed and patient-centred approach. This may include chiropractic adjustments, prehab (injury prevention) and rehabilitation exercises, soft tissue therapy, education, functional retraining and more. My goal is to help others live active and balanced lifestyles.

I have been practicing as a physiotherapist for almost 7 years, and in that time my problem solving, manual therapy, and exercise prescription skills continued to advance; however, one thing has remained the same. My patient-centered approach. I truly aim to find to root cause, or usually causes, of your problem and work with you to come up with an individualized treatment plan. My goal will always be the same as yours; to make you feel and move better.

To provide an exceptional standard to care to my patients I have invested a lot of time taking continuing education courses as well as pursuing other degrees. I am also a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab for physical therapy students at the University of Toronto. This opportunity allows me to share my experience as a clinician and to continually review and keep current on my anatomy, exercise, and biomechanics knowledge.

Over the month of September 2019, I will be taking courses on pelvic dysfunctions that impact both males and females. This will equip me with an entirely new skill set that I am very excited to share with current and potential clients!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dog Tuna, reading, travelling, and going to concerts! Most days of the week you can find me at a Barre class working on my strength and endurance. I definitely practice what I preach!

I have been working in a multidisciplinary setting for the last 5 years in Toronto and hope to continue building my presence in this beautiful city. My clinical practice focuses on combining both passive rehabilitation and facilitating dynamic exercises to influence and promote a client's active lifestyle. I strongly believe in soft tissue techniques and tissue manipulation with an emphasis on my clients' use of specific exercise and activity to help maintain the positive changes we have created during our sessions. 

In addition to my clinical practice, I work with Canadian Alpine Skier, Ali Nullmeyer as her personal Athletic Therapist. I have travelled and worked with Ali extensively across North America and Europe to successfully assist in her return from serious injury and compete on the Alpine World Cup circuit once again. My in-field experience and specific sport injury rehabilitation has given me the unique foundation to return individuals to their sport or every-day activities in a stronger, healthier state, as effectively and safely as possible. I love to work with individuals from the beginning to the end of injury as well to help maintain the human body and help prevent issues in the future!
