I have a passion to help you live a spiritually connected, emotionally balanced & physically thriving life.
Since 2002 I’ve helped hundreds of patients with a variety of chronic health issues ranging from lower back pain & sciatica, to low thyroid & digestive disorders, to PMS & discomfort associated with pregnancy.
I am always inspired when I see someone’s determination to overcome challenges, and I feel blessed when I’m able to help clients reclaim their health and purpose in life.
My first therapeutic massage happened to coincide with my grandfather going for massage therapy following a stroke. From this personal experience in the benefits of bodywork, I decided to go back to school in 2000 — I took the massage therapy program at the Canadian Therapeutic College in Burlington, Ontario.
After completing my RMT training I moved to Merrickville, Ontario to be with family. I joined a physiotherapy team in Kemptville, where I worked for seven years.
Since then, my fascination with medicine & healing has grown substantially.
After several years of working with and helping people, I noticed there was a small percentage of clients who weren’t getting significant relief — massage & physio support were only making minimal inroads toward improving their health problems.
In 2004 I had a car accident, and after the typical eight week course of treatment, I still wasn’t back to one hundred percent. I was eventually referred to an osteopath in Ottawa — and the wheels of learning began turning in my mind again.
In 2006 I returned to school and received my Diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Theory & Practice. In 2010 I completed my Masters in Osteopathic Education.
