I'm a Registered Physiotherapist and Certified Athletic Therapist CAT(C) working in the Waterloo Region, with a focus on sport-related concussion, vestibular-ocular conditions, and orthopaedic injuries. I am the Lead Therapist for Sledge Hockey Team Ontario and also have worked with Waterloo County Rugby Football Club, Rugby Canada and as a member of the medical team for the 2015 Parapan Am Games. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in the Kinesiology program at Wilfrid Laurier University with a focus on visual perception and balance control for individuals with sport-related concussion. My goal is to provide evidence for objective measures of dynamic visual acuity and balance control to improve clinical decision-making for return to sport, work, school, and life!
