My journey to chiropractic is similar to many. I didn’t know what I was looking for until I found it! As a young athlete I had a few injuries and a coach sent me to his chiropractor. I experienced relief but what was a greater surprise was the improvement in my overall health. During university I began working at a chiropractic clinic in Edmonton and I loved that we saw patients of all ages. I had always been interested in anatomy and helping people and this felt like it could be a great fit. This was definitely a career for me to help families feel better and to lead healthier, more vibrant lives.
I attended Palmer chiropractic college in Davenport, Iowa and graduated as valedictorian in 2004. Returning to Calgary, I have practiced part-time while also having 3 children (2 girls currently 12 and 11 and a son age 8), completing a Masters in Medical Science (medical education) and teaching anatomy at MRU.
In 2016 our family embarked on an overseas adventure. We moved to London, UK for 3 years and enjoyed extensive travel throughout Europe and making friends from around the world. After this incredible experience we are enjoying reconnecting to the community we missed while away. Our family is thrilled to call Lake Bonavista home where I keep busy coaching the kids sports and spending time outside with friends and family. I can’t wait to return to training for triathlon as I love to get out on my bike and head west.
Joining Fish Creek Chiropractic is an exciting opportunity. I bring my passion for caring for active families, and my special interest in chiropractic care for pregnant moms, to a dynamic team in a great community. I look forward to meeting you.
