Providing a unique blend of professional accreditation, certifications, and life experiences in service of others.
Thank you for stopping by my professional space on the internet. Since you've landed here it's likely that you're either looking for a physiotherapist in the Victoria, BC area or you're searching online for information related to core and pelvic floor health. Regardless of the reason - welcome. Let me tell you more about me and my work.
Physiotherapy has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. I come from a family of physiotherapists, with my mother and multiple cousins sharing their passion of the field and inspiring me to follow the same lineage. My goal in my work is to make my clients feel at ease and empowered. By blending my solid knowledge base with a personalized approach using active listening and relatable language, I provide targeted active therapy to address my clients' concerns related to core and pelvic floor health.
Complementary to my physiotherapy practice are my certifications as a yoga teacher and PhysicalMind Mat Pilates instructor, appointment as a varsity basketball player, and personal experience as a mother to three children. All of these experiences add to my professional training as a physiotherapist - whether it’s deeper understanding of the interconnectedness within the body, or the mind-body connection in muscle engagement, or the challenges experienced by mothers as they move through the prenatal and postnatal periods of motherhood.
If the work I do speaks to what you are needing then please contact me so that we can discuss how I can support you in your health journey.
