Originally from Ontario, I was first introduced to British Columbia during my high school years which were spent in North Vancouver. I went on to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Victoria, and then completed my Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2006, graduating Cum Laude.
A desire to live overseas quickly landed me in the southern hemisphere where I spent over nine years working in Perth, Australia. I was fortunate to gain a significant amount of experience treating patients with a wide variety of health conditions such as back and neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries. With a passion for teaching, I also spent six years at a local university as a clinical supervisor teaching diagnostic and treatment skills to final year chiropractic students. More recently in 2016, I completed a Master of Science in Pain Management from the University of Sydney, Australia as well as the diplomate program in the Canadian Academy of Pain Management. With these qualifications, I look forward to being of assistance to the residents of Kelowna, along with the rest of the Active Living team, in acute and chronic pain prevention and recovery.
Whether you are suffering pain or are in need of opinion on your joints, nerves and muscles, my approach to chiropractic emphasizes care that is patient-centered and aligned with your health goals. In addition to chiropractic manipulative techniques, I have completed the ART® and Graston® courses, and use pain science education and rehabilitation to help you feel better as soon as possible.
Outside of the clinic, I participate in multiple sports such as hockey and golf. However, the Okanagan community has introduced me to the wonderful sport of trail running which has piqued my interest in setting personal goals and enjoying Kelowna’s wilderness. Should you have any questions regarding how chiropractic can be helpful for you, please feel free to contact me at the clinic.
