About Me

I grew up in the small, friendly ski town of Rossland, British Columbia, Canada. It was here where my passion for fitness and activity was born. I was a competitive figure skater throughout my high school years until I graduated in 2005 and moved to Calgary, Alberta enrolling in the University of Calgary's faculty of Kinesiology. 

While completing my Bachelor of Science in General Kinesiology, I continued to figure skate recreationally and became a part-time learn-to-skate instructor at the University of Calgary's Olympic Oval as well as a part-time employee a pedorthic clinic/ footwear shop where I worked alongside pedorthists and was trained as a shoe fitting specialist. Upon completing my undergraduate degree I had opportunity to work for the summer months as a recreational leader/ support worker for a Calgary based organisation for adults with devolpmental disabilities. I then went on to work full-time for private physiotherapy clinic (Market Mall Physiotherapy) as a Kinesiologist where I had my first taste of  hands-on experience with patients in a clinical setting and introduced to physiotherapy modalities, techniques and concepts. It was this exposure that confirmed my desire to become a physiotherapist and gave me the inspiration and motivation to continue my studies.

Having an almost equal desire to travel and live abroad I decided to apply to the Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland where I was accepted as an international student and now enrolled in my final year of the MSc Pre-Registration Physiotherapy programme.

Currently I am throughly enjoying my last year of student life, working part-time as a footwear specialist at a running shop and making time for running, yoga and travel.
