I started off my career always having a passion for healthcare and rehabilitation. Before high school, I always enjoyed volunteering at many physiotherapy clinics. I always knew that I wanted to be involved in the healthcare world and brain injuries. After high school, I decided to go to the Univeristy of Waterloo where I obtained my Bachelor of Science (honours) in Kinesiology (2004). In my last year of University, I took a keen interest in Neuroscience and brain injuries. Additionally, in my last year of school I had a traumatic experience where I fractured my lumbar spine in the gym. From this experience, I decided to go into chiropractic sciences(2008). I went to New York Chiropractic College after my undergrad and achieved my Doctorate of Chiropractic (2011). During my schooling hours, I found that I had a keen interest in the brain and neurology. I started to specialize in concussions and chronic brain injuries. I had a true passion for rehabilitating people that suffered acute brain injuries to people who suffered strokes. After my doctorate, I decided to specialize further by taking my certificate at McMaster University for Medical Acupuncture. Post Schooling, I have taken numerous courses relating to concussion management and sports injuries. I have taken my Advanced Level Vestibular Rehabilitation course, as well as, my Level II Shift Concussion Management certification. This is the highest level of concussion management in the field. Currently, I am taking my Certificate in Concussion Management with the Carrick Institute and take moving towards my degree in Functional Neurology.
Fortunately, I have been able to work with some of the leading professionals in the Concussion world, giving me elite level knowledge of how to treat and manage concussions. Moreover, I have also been able to work with several top level clinics including Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine, London ON and Parkwood Brain Injury, London ON. From these amazing experiences, I have been able to develop my own state of the art clinic, Cobblestone Medicine and Rehab Centre. We have over 25 different health professionals in the clinic specializing in sports injury and concussion care. We are a team based integrated sports medicine clinic. Our clinic is our 14,000 sqr. ft dedicated to getting our patients back to 100%. We are currently getting the pieces together to open another sports medicine clinic in the area.
Over the last year, I was selected to be Brant County’s Advanced Practice Provider – low back specialty for the area. This is an interviewed and selective process. I have had to perform a year of additional training with Hamilton Health Sciences to obtain this level of certification. This has enabled our clinic to work directly with Hamilton General Hospital for low back specialty. Our clinic now has government funding for low back pain patients and accelerated access to services because of this accreditation.
