I was born and raised in North Vancouver and grew up playing and loving many sports, especially hockey. This interest in sports always pushed me to become a more improved athlete through conditioning and rehabilitation to keep my body in optimal condition.
With my educational interests mainly in science, I moved up North to Prince George, BC to obtain my Bachelors of Science Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). While studying at UNBC, I continued to participate in many sports such as hockey, volleyball, badminton, squash, and tennis, which I still actively partake in today. This reserved my interest in the science of the human body. As a focused student I began to think about my future prospects; however, was still unsure as to which occupation could combine my passion for overall health and wellness.
In 2008, my final year and semester at UNBC, I participated in an exchange program in Sweden and immediately after this time I backpacked through Europe with a friend. On my journey through parts of Europe, I saw many different health clinics which were directed more towards a hands-on approach rather than a medicinal approach. This proved to be the go-to form of health care in those regions. Here is where I decided that this was the form of care that I wanted to be a part of.
After returning home, I graduated from UNBC and immediately began researching the field of Chiropractics. I started by volunteering at clinics and applied to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto (CMCC).
After graduating from CMCC in June 2014, I am very happy to be back in North Vancouver where my family lives and where I always wanted to establish myself. As a Chiropractor, I am thoroughly excited to continue learning and putting my knowledge to use in helping patients obtain the optimal health that each individual deserves.
I am grateful to be a part of the Foundation for Integrated Health team and look forward to helping you reach your personal health goals, whether it is due to pain, injuries, sports related recovery and conditioning, or overall functionality.
