I am a motivated physiotherapist that has studied at four universities across the world and would like to bridge the gap between knowledge in the field of physiotherapy internationally. Each country practices a bit differently and has knowledge that does not always make it overseas but could answer questions for practitioners or help a patient with a difficult case.

About Me

I am a passionate physiotherapist who would like to contribute as much as I can to the field. I have an interest in musculoskeletal, neurological, women's health, and sports physiotherapy. My passion stemmed from the curiosity at a young age to explore human movement. As a ballet dancer converted into sea kayaker I appreciate the balance between mobility and stability through strength. I am constantly learning how to overcome physical obstacles due to my interest in adrenaline sports such as downhill skiing, climbing, hiking, and kayaking. I believe with safe progression, the body has an exceptional capacity for physical activity.
