How I became a ChiropractorAfter practicing for thirty years as a dentist, my dad developed such severe neck pain he could not lift his chin off of his chest. He also suffered from poor posture, numbness and tingling down his arm, high blood pressure and difficulty breathing. After seeking out many therapies, he saw a Chiropractor who immediately made the connection of what was going on with his health to his posture. After adjusting him a few times, my dad could lift his head higher, breathe easier and his neck pain decreased! It was at that point in my life I knew that Chiropractic was the path for me and I haven't looked back since.
EducationI graduated from McMaster University from the Honours Biology program with a minor in Psychology before attending Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. I have been certified in both Webster technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and Thompson drop technique. I have a special passion in adjusting babies and children as I believe it's easier to raise healthy children than to fix unhealthy adults. As a Chiropractor, it has been a blessing to help the next generation become healthier, stronger and live longer!
Practice PhilosophyI believe that we have been given incredible bodies that are fully capable of functioning, healing and repairing on their own when given the right healing environment. Health is not something that happens to you by chance but it is rather a series of choices that we make on a day to day basis that is leading us toward or away from health. As a Chiropractor, my goal is to help you achieve optimal health by educating you on how to make the right lifestyle choices and helping to restore your body's innate ability to heal.

When I am not in the office, you can often find me at my CrossFit box doing a WOD or appreciating the beauty of Lakeshore through a run. I am a huge health advocate and have a knack for trying new and healthy recipes in the kitchen.
