Some of my guiding principles

Principle 1: sharing knowledge and empowering others to think positively to achieve their desired outcomes is the foundation from which my rehabilitation and training philosophy has developed.

Principle 2: aiming to enhance each individual’s understanding of their capacity to heal and to physically excel.

Causes I care about

I continue to deliver concussion management workshops to provincial sport administrators, coaches, parents and athletes through SportMedBC.

I have been a volunteer and employee with the Whistler Youth Centre for over 10 years.

I combine manual treatment with a full-body approach to developing efficient movement patterns and a balance of strength and mobility.
