My passion for the human body and movement began in my final year of high-school after taking exercise science. I was fascinated by the limits of our body and its ability to recover and keep us going. I followed this interest into post-grad by completing my Bachelor in Kinesiology Co-op with a Pre-health profession specialization at the University of Waterloo. I went on to complete my Master of Physical Therapy at Western University.

I have obtained my Level 1 Manual Therapy certification as my interests lie in orthopaedics and treating patients with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. In the future I am looking to complete further education in pelvic health and women’s health. My goal is to work collaboratively with my patients and provide them with the knowledge and tools necessary to maximize their function and maintain an active healthy lifestyle. I love connecting with my patients while helping them reach their lifestyle goals. I hope to create a comprehensive treatment plan which would include patient education, manual therapy and exercise prescription.

If there is one word to describe how I felt walking into the We-Fix-U clinic for the first time, it would be comfort. There was a sense of comfort knowing that I was surrounded by such kind and intelligent practitioners who cared deeply for their patients. I hope to evoke similar feelings for future patients at We-Fix-U.

Outside the clinic, you can find me watching my favourite shows on Netflix and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. I love to try new foods, travel and capture moments with special ones. I have recently picked up yoga with all that extra time on hand and will be incorporating it into my lifestyle. I am beyond excited to start off my career at We-Fix-U at the Cobourg location!
