Originally from Vancouver Island, I relocated to Nelson, BC in 2020. Although I love the West Coast and all it has to offer, big mountains and new adventures were calling my name. When I'm not in the clinic you can find me on my mountain bike, touring in the backcountry, hiking in the alpine, or petting every dog I come in contact with.
With a passion for leading an active lifestyle, it was only natural that I chose to pursue a career that would allow me to help others do the same. In 2015, I completed a Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy at Camosun College and then went on to complete a Diploma of Acupuncture from Pacific Rim College in 2019.
I use a combination of acupuncture, various manual therapy techniques, exercise prescription, and client education during each of my treatments. I strive to get clients back to their pre-injury state as quickly and as safely as possible. Not only do I love treating musculoskeletal injuries but acupuncture has opened my eyes to the possibilities of helping clients with issues ranging from digestive upset to menstrual disorders.
