As the Lead Chiropractor for the Health2Work program, I’m responsible for: contributing to the Health2Work’s program design; reviewing and approving clinical care plans developed by treating chiropractors and supporting coordination and collaboration among health care providers on an ongoing basis.
I have a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree (BHSc) from McMaster University and a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC). Since graduating in 2008, I’ve worked in multidisciplinary clinics in Waterloo and Brantford alongside physicians (medical doctors), nurses, naturopaths, registered massage therapists and social workers.
In addition to my clinical practice, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at McMaster University, where I teach courses on communication, collaboration, problem-solving and pain. I also act as a consultant to the Ontario Chiropractic Association working on community outreach and health system integration.
I enjoy working in the Health2Work program because it helps to fill an important gap in care for people living with musculoskeletal (spine, muscle and joint) pain, while also serving as an important bridge between the social service and health care systems. I live in rural Wellington County with my husband and three little ones, where I love spending time outdoors, baking and playing board games.
I am a treating chiropractor in the Health2Work program, where I work out of my private practice in Cambridge, as well as the Langs Community Health Centre.
I graduated from Trent University with a degree in Biochemistry (BSc) in 1997 and then attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, where I obtained my Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree in 2001. Since then, I’ve worked in Cambridge at two interdisciplinary clinics, while also acting as a consultant for the Ontario Chiropractic Association.
I chose to become a chiropractor because the profession brings together my interest in science and my passion for working with others. I love the fact that being a chiropractor allows me to use scientific knowledge to help people.
Outside of private practice, I have worked within my community to develop programs to ensure greater access to services like chiropractic care, including by developing a clinic in cooperation with Langs Community Health Centre.
I grew up in Cambridge, which is where I currently live with my husband and daughter. When I am not at work I can often be found running, hiking with my dog, or taking in a hockey game.
I am a treating chiropractor in the Health2Work program, where I provide chiropractic care out of my private practice in Cambridge (Galt).
I hold a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) in Human Kinetics from the University of Guelph and I studied Health Sciences at the State University of New York at Auburn. I attained my Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree in 1996 from the New York Chiropractic College (NYCC). Since then, I’ve been in private practice at my Cambridge (Galt) location. I’m also a volunteer chiropractor at Langs Community Health Centre.
I decided to become a chiropractor because of the way chiropractic care combines science and the hands-on art and skill of treatment. I joined the H2W program because it allows me to care for with a patient population that I would not otherwise see in my practice.
Outside of my private practice, I serve a number of community-based boards and have been an on-site treating chiropractor for multiple national and international sporting events.
My wife, two daughters and I live on the edge of Cambridge, close to Glen Morris where I grew up. In the winter, when I’m out of the office, I can be found at the arena playing and coaching hockey. My summers are spent on the dock at our family cottage on Lake Muskoka.
I am a treating chiropractor in the Health2Work program, where I care for patients at a multidisciplinary clinic in Kitchener.
I graduated from Queen’s University in 2015 with a four-year Bachelor of Physical Health and Education (BPHE) degree. Following this, I attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, where I obtained my Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree in 2019.
In addition to working in a multidisciplinary clinic in Kitchener, I am also a treating chiropractor within the North York General Assessment and Wellness Centre. At this centre, I focus on treating work-related upper and lower extremity injuries. I also act as a Work Capacity Liaison for the North York General Occupational Health Assessment Program. In this role I work with physicians to assess those who’ve sustained a complicated work-related injury and help recommend the next course of action for the injured worker (e.g. more intensive therapy, imaging or referral to a specialist).
I chose to become a chiropractor and become involved with H2W because I enjoy helping others, and think that everyone should have access to chiropractic care.
When I’m out of the office, I’m often walking or hiking with my dog or on the golf course.
I’m a treating chiropractor in the Health2Work program, where I care for patients at a private clinic in Kitchener.
I graduated from Brock University with a Bachelor of Kinesiology (BKin) degree (Honours) and became a licensed chiropractor in Ontario after graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in 2012.
I became a chiropractor because I am passionate about sports. I was the team chiropractor for the Kitchener Dutchmen of the greater Ontario junior hockey league (GOJHL) for seven seasons. I also provided first aid and therapy to athletes at the National Hockey League (NHL) elite prospects camp in Toronto in 2017 and to athletes represented by the Creative Artist Agencies (CAA) in 2016. I was also selected to be a medical practitioner for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto and the 2018 Ontario Summer Games.
I bring specialized knowledge of concussion care and medical acupuncture to my chiropractic practice. I’m a certified as a Complete Concussion Management (CCMI) practitioner. I’ve also completed training in vestibular rehabilitation, a technique for treating balance disorders and dizziness. And I have also completed the contemporary medical acupuncture course at McMaster University.
When I am not caring for patients, I am playing hockey, golfing or spending time with my wife and dog.
