How many years have you been a physiotherapist?

This is my first year of practicing physiotherapy, I’m a recent grad from the University of Toronto.

Can you tell us one interesting fact about you?

An interesting fact about me is that last spring I had the chance to compete in an international dragon boat competition and our team actually came second in our division which was awesome.

Why physiotherapy?

I chose physiotherapy because to me, it was a really good way to merge activity, which is something I grew up with and something that I’m really passionate about, with helping people in the health field, so it was a really cool way to bridge the two together and give a holistic type of care.

Do you have an area of interest or specialization in physiotherapy?

One of the areas that I’m specializing in currently is women’s health. I’ve taken my first level of my pelvic health courses and will be continuing on with my levels two and three in this coming January and February. I’m working with both women and men for pelvic health issues.

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

One thing I was suggest for new patients is just to try and stay as active as you can throughout the rehab process. Making sure you can optimize other areas of your life too, to the best of your ability, whether that’s sleeping, nutrition or different things like that, it can all play a huge role in recovery.
