Growing up in this beautiful province I'm proud to call home, I embarked on my professional journey with excitement and passion. My education and training started at Simon Fraser University where I earned my BSc in health sciences. I then embarked on the four year Naturopathic medical program through the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine where I completed approximately 4,200 hours of classroom hours, and 1,200 clinical hours. I am determined to share my experience with my patients through a combination of service and education. I am a passionate healer, and dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional transitions as a team in the most efficient way possible.
In addition to my practice in Burnaby, B.C. I work within the physical medicine program at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. I instruct Physical Medicine, a second-year class which covers orthopaedic conditions and assessment techniques. In addition to my role as an instructor I work as a teaching assistant for the third and fourth year osseous manipulation classes where students are taught safe spinal adjustment techniques. I also supervise osseous manipulation open lab hours 1-2 days per week where students come to expand and refine the skills they have learned during class hours.
In my practice I enjoy treating musculoskeletal/sports injuries in anyone from the full-time working weekend warrior to the athletes who want to get back to breaking their PRs. I want us to work together in determining the most effective treatment for YOU. We begin by going over your top health goals followed by a thorough medical history in order to gain an understanding of your day to day living and how it is affecting your health. With this foundation set, I will tailor a treatment plan aimed towards achieving your health goals. I use a variety of treatment methods including, but not limited to: soft tissue massage, spinal adjustments, acupuncture (electrical stimulation available), nutrition and exercise counselling, and non-pharmaceutical supplements.
If you still have questions or would simply like to meet face to face I am happy to offer complimentary 15 minute meet and greets (click the "Book Now" button at the top of this page).
