What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time. I really like to go to the gym and I competed in mixed martial arts for 20 years prior. I’m also a professional juggler. Actually that might be a lie..
What kind of physiotherapy do you do?
Currently, I’m working with a wide variety of patients. I find that I really enjoy working with patients that have suffered a concussion. I find that it takes a lot of collaboration between myself and the patient to really optimize their rehabilitation. And so I find that connection makes me quite happy.
Why did you choose physiotherapy?
I chose physiotherapy because initially I had a sporting background with mixed martial arts. I always was injured and physiotherapy was the one form of treatment that always helped me get back to where I need to be. Afterwards I found while I was working as a kinesiologist, I really liked the unique capacity that physios are in, in which we have 30 minutes of uninterrupted time with patients so we can find out about your needs and your goals, and really work on it together.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a new patient?
One piece of advice I’d give my patients is that your opinions, your concerns, your pain and your goals all matter. I feel like a lot of times, people are concerned that they don’t get listened to or they feel like they aren’t being addressed by what they need. I will always ensure that I will try my best to make sure that you feel heard.
What do you like about Westcoast SCI?
Westcoast SCI works as a really collaborative unit. We all support each other. If there are complicated patients, we can all help each other, learning and trying to help the patient. Whatever their needs may be. I find that I’m always constantly being challenged by my coworkers and that drives me to become a much better physio.
