How many years have you been a Physiotherapist?
I have been a physiotherapist for 10 years, a proud graduate from the University of Saskatchewan in 2010. I joined the 5th ave team in 2018 and have enjoyed keeping the downtown crowd active & moving in the things they are passionate about.

Why did you become a Physiotherapist?
I became a physiotherapist because it married my two passions – medicine and movement, and to me, movement really is the best medicine. Whether it’s getting high-level athletes back to sport or improving strength to carry kids, I’m excited to assist in the journey to get people moving and enhancing their quality of life

Do you have an area of special interest?
I have a special interest in women’s health that first developed out of pure interest sake but now after having two children of my own, has that much more meaning to my practice. I understand the importance of guiding women through their prenatal journey and the recovery after baby. It is an area of practice that can sometimes be overlooked but is so important to women’s quality of life and to get them back to participating fully in the things they enjoy most. From an orthopedic standpoint, I do really love treating hips and backs.

How does movement impact your life?
Movement is part of my everyday life. Having two little guys, I’m constantly lifting, squatting, carrying & holding them so it’s so important to be strong and have functional movement so I can continue to care for my children. From a leisure perspective, I love it all. In the summer I bike, hike, swim & wake surf and in the winter, I’m snowboarding, skiing, skating, walking daily and trying my best to get in some yoga and barre classes when I can.

What does a great Physiotherapy experience look like to you?
A safe, comfortable environment where patients can tell their story with ease and together, we can work towards their goals. Clear communication regarding diagnosis and prognosis is essential. A thorough treatment plan with clear timelines will assist in proficient recovery.
