Believe it or not, I was introduced to Osteopathy through an ad. By this time, I had already been a dancer and yoga instructor for several years. I eventually began working as a chiropractic assistant and saw the true power physical touch can have.
Realizing this, and feeling inspired by what I knew about the human body, I felt compelled to follow a path aligned with my values. I quickly discovered hands-on work is what truly lights me up. And as I continued to immerse myself in the world of Osteopathy, I was immediately drawn to the ability to heal people with my hands.
I still remember my first experience as a patient of Osteopathy, and getting on the table myself. This single appointment gave me everything I needed, on all levels. I felt like my needs were being heard, and like I was being considered as a whole person. It was then that it became my passion and my purpose to bring this same experience to all of my patients.
I graduated from the National Academy of Osteopathy in 2015, and worked between Dublin and London as a Manual Osteopath before I returned home to Ontario. In addition to Manual Osteopathy, I am also fully certified in practicing Rapid Neuro Fascial Reset, Barral Visceral Manipulation, Strain/ Counterstrain , and Cupping techniques.
My favourite part of being a Manual Osteopath is seeing the progress my patients make. What fills my cup is being able to see my clients get back to doing everyday activities they couldn’t do when they first walked through my door. The best part of my day is the opportunity to connect with my patients and celebrate their wins with them as they reach their goals.

Manual Osteopath, M.OMSc, CNP
Canadian Academy of Osteopathy – M.OMSc
Certified Nutritional Practitioner – Institute of Holistic Nutrition
I first learned about Osteopathy when a friend recommended I see one. At the time I had been living with back pain for two years and had not found relief through other forms of treatment. After my first treatment, I considered my Osteo a miracle man and began researching how I could help people in the same way.
In 2022 I completed the comprehensive four-year osteopathic education program through the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy (CAO) in Hamilton, Ontario. Graduating with a Masters of Practice Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Sciences (M.OMSc).
In my mid-twenties I was told I would be on medication for life. In response, I became a Holistic Nutritionist and learned how to manage physical symptoms through what I put in and on my body.
In 2012 I graduated with Honours from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. I am also a certified Metabolic Balance Coach and am currently enrolled in the Culinary Nutritionist Expert Program.
Prior to studying osteopathy, I spent 18 years in Corporate Finance. I resigned from the role as a Director of Finance to pursue a career where I could make a personal difference to others in a quest for health.
I am also certified as an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Clearing Work, and Tao Healing Hands Practitioner with a growing interest in trauma-informed work and Human Design (2/4 Emotional ManGen). In 2021 I became a Best Selling author, coauthoring the book Wounds to Wisdom.
I live in Newmarket with my two beautiful kids and puppy. I am generally active and love to play sports.

Registered Massage Therapist
Algonquin College 2018
Massage therapy is something I have always done, though it was not always a passion. Growing up on a farm you see many people get injured and keep working through it- someone has to feed the horses. As soon as my mom realized I could give pretty good massages, it became standard for me to massage her neck or back at bedtime. As I got older we didn’t do this as much and I forgot about the power of massage.
When it came time to choose a career I started looking into pharmacology and anaesthesiology. Neither one felt quite right, partly because I didn’t love the idea of doling out medications all the time and partly because I’m bad at math. Then I discovered the connection: I wanted to help people manage their pain, but I wanted to do it more naturally.
I graduated from the Massage Therapy program at Algonquin College in 2018 and have loved my profession ever since. My goal is to keep people doing what they love, helping them return to activity after injuries and surgeries. I love learning new techniques and have added cupping therapy, scar and post-surgical work, perinatal care, knowledge of the pelvic floor (and how it affects function), and some understanding of fascial lines. My style tends to be focused and goal-oriented with a deeper pressure though I am versatile and meet my patients where they are. I aim to provide a safe and inclusive space for all. I can’t wait to meet you and help you achieve your goals!
