▶ CLINICAL SPECIALITY - I have a special interest in female care such as guiding rehab/exercise around hormonal profiles and postpartum care/rehabilitation, TMJ dysfunction, sport chiropractic and nutrition.

▶ WHY DID YOU BECOME A CHIROPRACTOR - I became a Chiropractor because I have always had a strong desire to help the public improve their health and wellness. Chiropractic was the perfect combination between traditional health care and athletic training. Plus, after I saw a Chiropractor myself for a hip injury from a powerlifting competition I was extremely impressed and it was a no brainer for me to apply to Chiropractic school!

▶ FAVOURITE THING ABOUT BEING A CHIROPRACTOR - I love being able to help educate my patients about understanding what is going on with their bodies and teaching them how to manage and improve their pain - movement is medicine!

▶ FAVOURITE ACTIVITY OUTSIDE OF WORK - When away from the clinic I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I also can't live without the gym. I enjoy weight lifting and running. I also spend a lot of time working on my research and completing my residency program to become a sport specialist chiropractor, with a niche in female rehabilitation and performance. πŸ‹️‍♀️

3 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ME:
1️⃣ I was born and raised in Courtice, ON
2️⃣ Before Chiropractic School I completed my Masters in Human Health and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Guelph - where I learned that rats are really just small dogs πŸ•
