While completing my undergraduate degree at Queen’s University in Kinesiology, I was the varsity Basketball trainer, helping athletes with their off and on the court training and rehabilitation. I then continued my education by obtaining my Masters of Science in Physiotherapy at McMaster University.

I am extremely sports-oriented; a previous soccer player, and having a large passion for the game, I was fortunate enough to be selected to work as a soccer on-field therapist at the 2015 Pan Am games.

I do have a special interest in manual therapy and have obtained my level 3 certification from the Orthopedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. My love of golf has spilled over from playing it avidly to being credentialed through the Titleist Performance Institute as a Medical Level 3 practitioner for golf-specific rehabilitation. In the spirit of progressing the profession of physiotherapy I have been appointed as an Associate Clinical Professor (Adjunct) in the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at McMaster University.


Don’t get me wrong, I love being a Physiotherapist and I’m truly blessed that I can go to work with a smile on my face knowing that I am making a positive impact on my client’s life.


I knew that being a Physiotherapist would not solely lead to my goals of retiring early and enjoying my middle (and not my golden) years living on my schedule and not trading my time for money.

Throughout my 9 years + of being a practicing Physiotherapist, I’ve been fortunate enough to complete several manual therapy, exercise, concussion, golf-specific courses (the traditional path- find a niche, expand your therapeutic tool kit and own it) courses. It was in those courses that I came across experienced practitioners to novices all on the same journey, to become successful practitioners and skilled technicians. Just the way our traditional education system (TES) always promised us.

What our TES did not teach us (at least not me) was how to get out of student debt, the difference between a TFSA and RRSP, what the stock market is, how to buy my first home, why saving money may make me less wealthy. Instead, my brain was filled with stoichiometry, the quadratic formula, how to ‘feel’ an intervertebral motion, and how to stress test the dorsal calcaneocuboid ligament.

I was fed up circling around the rat race and devised a plan to get out of it.
