About Me[edit | edit source]
I graduated in 2014 with a Master of Physiotherapy degree from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Since that time I have been working in private orthopedic settings in Canada. Prior to entering the physiotherapy profession I completed my PhD in Biochemistry with a special interest in Parkinson's Disease. I am an avid runner and enjoy treating athletes with a specific interest in competitive and recreational runners. In addition to my work as a physiotherapist I also work for New Balance London which provides me with advanced knowledge on new running technology and specifically shoes.
