How many years have you been a physiotherapist?
I recently graduated from Queens University from Ontario and I just moved back to Vancouver. I’m excited to be back here and working at Westcoast SCI.
Can you tell us one interesting fact about you?
One interesting thing about me is that I play competitive ultimate frisbee. I started playing at Queens and I’ve really enjoyed playing.
I chose physiotherapy because it’s a great combination of being active and I’ve always been active, playing sports growing up, as well I’ve always had a passion for helping others so physiotherapy was a great mix of both of those. I love spending time with patients, getting to know them and working with them to reach their goals.
Do you have an area of interest or specialization in physiotherapy?
Right now I don’t have any specializations, but I’m interested in a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. In the past, I’ve worked with all ages, from kids to older adults and I really like that range; getting to know people.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a new patient?
One thing that I would advise new patients is to make sure you’re spending time to stay active and if you’re having troubles with that, definitely come in and we can work together to make sure we get you back to those activities you enjoy doing.
