My working life as a physiotherapist has been in Vancouver, in private practice (1991-2005), as well as a physiotherapy consultant with BC Hydro. Since 2005, I have worked from my home office as a private practitioner. I graduated with a Bachelor of Education (1986), followed by a Bachelor of Science in Physical therapy (1990), from the University of Alberta.
I am trained in Osteopathic medicine (Visceral Manipulation) through the Barrel Institute, and in Cranio-sacral therapy with the Upledger Institute.
In 2009, I became a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor and I use this combined approach, guiding clients towards better self care. I obtained my Intermediate Junior II certification in Iyengar Yoga in 2016. Most recently, I have served on the board of the Iyengar yoga association of Vancouver (2014 -2019), as recording secretary and currently as president.
I will continue to treat and teach clients, working part-time combining physiotherapy, osteopathy and Iyengar yoga training as I transition to rural living over the 2019-2020 period.

Each day I am thankful for the country and city that I have lived over the past three decades. I am grateful for the opportunity of working within the health care and rehabilitative systems providing helpful services and education to my clients.
Clients can be our biggest teachers guiding the concerned therapist to continue their quest for knowledge and understanding of the human body.
I intend to continue my learning within the Iyengar system as well as nurturing a passion for gardening and outdoor activities over the coming years.
Thank you to my students and clients, you are the true guides and teachers of my working journey !
