My career as a physiotherapist began in 1999, after graduating from Dalhousie University, NS, with a Bachelor of Science, Physiotherapy. I have since worked full time in private practice settings. I offer my services to all ages, and treat predominantly orthopaedic conditions such as; repetitive strains, MVA related injuries, low back and neck pain, sports injuries and traumatic injuries.
I am engaged in ongoing post-graduate continuing education, and have taken a variety of courses to help further improve my skills. Some of which include Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy, Myofascial Release, Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy of the Lumbar Spine, Vestibular Rehabilitation, Acupuncture (AFCI) Level 1 Part 2A & BTAOM, Advanced Foot Biomechanics & Orthotic Therapy, Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement System Impairment Syndromes and Craniosacral Level II, Upledger Institute. I have been a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association since 1999 and am currently licensed through the Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapy.
My vision as a physiotherapist started from my appreciation for health and interest in the anatomy and physiology of the human body. My joy of helping others is supported by my devotedness to healthy nutrition, regular fitness and a healthy mind. The arrival of my new daughter has further confirmed my desire to extend my education in working with women and infants through pediatric craniosacral therapy, and as a pre and postnatal fitness specialist.
