Journey to becoming a chiropractor
I have a passion for human movement and biomechanics and have always known that I wanted to work in health care. As an elite athlete, I played soccer at Laurentian University and studied kinesiology. During my final year, I was in a car accident and suffered extensive injuries. When my physiotherapist recommended chiropractic care for my neck complaint, I admit I was hesitant. However, I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason.
What immediately set my chiropractor apart from other therapists was how thoroughly they executed my history and physical exam. They took the time to connect with me as a patient and as a person. In addition, they were more than competent to diagnose any musculoskeletal complaint. It was during this first visit that I thought “this is something that I want to do.”
What I love about being a chiropractor is seeing patients’ eyes light up when they have that “aha” moment. It’s amazing the connection we make when determining the underlying cause of their injury.
Region of practice
Upon graduation in 2015 from CMCC, I made the bold decision to open my clinic in Sudbury as a sole proprietor. I value interprofessional collaboration in order to provide patients with optimal care. I quickly established a network of referring specialists, family physicians, dentists, and massage therapists with the intention of building an interdisciplinary team in the future to serve the community.
I own and operate a clinic in Sudbury, Ontario: Back 2 Health Rehabilitation Centre that focuses on managing acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries.
