Originally from the West Kootenays, I visited Kelowna many times throughout my life. When it came time to choose a city to settle in Kelowna was an easy choice. I have always been an active individual taking part in hockey and competitive golf growing up. This led me to become interested in pursuing a career in the health care field with a specific interest in sports injuries. Watching my father, who was a ten-time Ironman competitor, being kept in top physical condition by his chiropractor I realized how much I could help enhance and maintain not only people’s athletic ability, but also their everyday quality of life by becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia and went on to attend Chiropractic School at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, graduating with honors. During my time in school, I recognized the benefits of incorporating soft tissue techniques to compliment traditional chiropractic care, specifically the Graston Technique® and Active Release Techniques® (ART). Since then I have taken continuing education courses in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) which helps break down faulty movement patterns leading to a more accurate diagnosis, as well as Function Range Release (FR) another effective soft tissue treatment.
In addition to my work at the clinic I am also fortunate enough to be on the medical staff of the Okanagan Sun football team as the team Chiropractor. I also enjoy volunteering with the rest of the Active Living team at various triathlons and runs throughout the beautiful Okanagan Valley. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your optimal level of health and fitness!
