From my interest in sports and in the human body, I’ve completed my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University. I’ve worked at many health clinics, which inspired me to pursue massage therapy at West Coast College of Massage Therapy as a helping hand to the healthcare. I enjoy making a positive impact in patients’ wellness. The therapist and the patient are part of an individualized team; meaning the therapist communicates well and uses their skills to help achieve the patient’s goals and needs. I work with a combination of myofascial techniques, deep tissue releases as well as joint mobilizations when needed.
Outside of work, you’d find me on the court, as I’ve competed in nationals for badminton during my high school days. I enjoy teaching, coaching, and spending time with the family on my off days!
