As a child, I participated in numerous sports before settling on figure skating as my main focus. After experiencing several sports related injuries myself, I developed an interest in understanding how the human body heals and the motivation required to return to competitive sport post injury. This led to my enrollment at the University of Calgary where I graduated with a Bachelor in Kinesiology majoring in Athletic Therapy in 2005.

After several years working with minor football and lacrosse teams, I felt something was missing in my approach and treatment methods with clients. This led me to osteopathy as it focuses on the underlying cause of pain or dysfunction in a person’s body, besides the surface symptoms.

When I first began treating clinically, I was on a fairly conventional therapeutic career path, using traditional orthopedic assessment and treatment techniques, a natural extension of my background as an athlete, having run a marathon and played field hockey. A number of years ago I realized that these techniques were only helping my patient so much. I decided to enhance my therapy skills and understanding of the human body by enrolling at the Canadian school of osteopathy in 2010. Osteopathy is a therapeutic practice that is based upon the premise that manipulation of the muscles and bones encourages self-regulation within the body to restore function reduced pain and improved imbalances.

Through my education and experience, I have enjoyed and welcomed the opportunity to continue to learn and improve my skills. I appreciate the interrelationship between structure and function of the human body and recognize the body’s ability to heal itself, and my role to help facilitate that process. I feel passionate about helping people optimize their health and improve their quality of life.

I was first introduced to osteopathy when my mom visited one to combat her autoimmune liver disease and saw great improvements. After completing my bachelors degree in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo I went to the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton to study. I was immediately fascinated with the perspective Osteopathy took to healing the body. The way that Osteopathy looks at the whole and heals with the body’s self-regulating mechanisms is what really drew me in. With my Osteopathic education, I became the Wellness Director at Soul Work Wellness in Elora, Ontario and accumulated over 1000 practical training hours and was offered a teaching position at my school’s Calgary campus. I finished my degree with a project on Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, inspired by my mother, and how Osteopathic interventions change prognosis through multiple case studies. Over time, I have developed a passion for engaging with my patients to make them feel healthy not only physically, but also on an emotional, mental, and spiritual level through my work. When I am not treating you might find me doing open mic and a pub, on the hiking trails, or barbecuing at the beach!

I was first introduced to osteopathy when my mother booked an appointment for me when I was a teenager back in Quebec. I was amazed how quickly the therapist found the main areas of restriction on my body and this, with the lightest touch. Osteopathy really intrigued me. Having performed as a snowboard athlete and worked as a snowboard coach for many years, I had multiple injuries and concussions, which I found improved the most when addressed with the holistic approach of osteopathy. My own healing adventure left me with a deep sense of body awareness that prepared me for the work of an osteopathic practitioner. Since then, I have graduated from the Canadian School of Osteopathy in 2016 and continued my journey, this time as the therapist. I have since founded and worked at Revelstoke Osteopathy & Wellness in Revelstoke were I was privileged to help people from various background and especially, but not restricted to, expecting mothers, babies and children. I am passionate about helping people from all ages achieving and expressing their body’s outmost potential, which in turn increases their quality of life and the ones of others around them.
