Welcome

Thank you for visiting the site! I am a wilderness seeking, raised in a small town, Chiropractor, with a love for learning. This site contains some information about what I do and why I do it. Enjoy.

What I do

I am fortunate to engage in a few different activities in Vancouver, BC, including:


Chiropractic

Using a variety of hands-on therapies, rehabilitative exercises, and personalized lifestyle counselling, I work with patients to optimize their physical health. For more information, check out the following links:

Teaching

I have the pleasure of working as a Substitute Instructor at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver. I teach Biochemistry, Cell Biology, and Anatomy.


Coaching

I volunteer the odd day per week with the Simon Fraser University Rowing Crew — a fun and passionate group of athletes! My role on the team includes athletic wellness, strength & conditioning, and novice development.

Sports Nutrition Consulting

Nutritional therapy is a multifaceted and individualized approach that encompasses dietary modifications and nutrient supplementation. It includes the use of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural compounds. Nutrition is just one key ingredient that is part of a broader group of important modifiable lifestyle factors (including sleep, exercise, stress, and relationships), which have a strong influence on health and wellness, risk for disease, and sport performance. Contact me for more details 🙂

 

Why I do it

I love that every day is different, and that I get to interact with people on a personal level. For me, health has always been a resource for living and not the objective. I like being a resource for others. In teaching, I enjoy sharing ideas and seeing students take the information and come up with something new and out-of-the-box. Everyday, I am inspired by patients, students, and athletes who reach for their goals, realize their potential, and deepen their understanding. I am inspired by the opportunity to be creative and empower creativity.

Female Athlete Triad

The female athlete triad is best managed by a multidisciplinary team, including physicians, dieticians, athletic trainers, behavioural health clinicians, and exercise physiologists. The management plan needs to consider the goals of the athlete, and their unique diet, training practices, and level of competition.
