What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, you can either find me at the gym or going on hikes with my dog. I also like kickboxing, drawing and playing guitar.

What kind of physiotherapy do you do?

I mainly work in general orthopaedics, meaning that I work with people who have muscle or joint injuries, but I have also taken extra courses to work with people who have experienced concussions. And in addition to that, I’m a pelvic health specialist. So I work with both women and men who are having issues with continence, pelvic pain, or pre or postnatal care concerns.

Why physiotherapy?

I chose physiotherapy because I loved being able to develop the relationships that you get to develop, with clients as they progress through their rehab journey, to be able to get them back to their hobbies, their goals, however big or small those may be. But to kind of be with them every single step of the way through that process is really rewarding. And that was one of the big reasons why I wanted to become a physiotherapist.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a new patient?

I think the biggest piece of advice that I would give to a new patient would be that we always hope that the road to recovery looks like this, but most of the time it’s going to be a little bumpy along the way. So trust the process. Keep moving and we’ll make sure that we get you to where you want to be.

What do you like about Westcoast SCI?

I really love our team here at Westcoast SCI. It’s awesome to work with all the different physios, kins and reception staff that we have at the clinic. I think that our one-on-one time that we spend with patients and having slightly longer appointment times is really awesome. And it really helps us to get the best results for everybody who’s coming to seek our services and above all, it’s just a really fun place to work.
