I graduated in 1994 from UBC Physiotherapy and have been in private practice for the past 15 years, working with a variety of athletes from the recreational to national levels. As well I have participated as an onsite physiotherapist at various soccer tournaments, biking and running events. I completed a Masters of Health Administration at UBC in 2004. My thesis was a clinical practice guideline on whiplash - a common sports injury from falls/hits as well as car accidents. I hold a Sport Physiotherapy diploma as well as a Manual Therapist diploma and enjoy integrating the 2 specialities to obtain optimal results. I was the team therapist with the Men's National Ski Team and attended the 2010 Games with them. Currently, myself and 2 partners are opening Back In Action Physiotherapy in Whistler, BC.
