Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (Classical Osteopath), M.OMSc. from The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, Hamilton, ON
Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences Graduate with Honours, Dean’s List from McMaster University (HBSc.)
I've always loved to travel; during one of my volunteer trips to central America in my undergraduate degree, I recognized the need for a natural and sustainable way to provide healthcare to those in rural areas. My love for Osteopathy was born when I discovered some of the greatest tools I had to help my community: my hands. After a major switch in career paths from biochemistry and biomedical sciences to the world of holistic health care with Osteopathy, I found my calling at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy.
My education was based upon learning the principles of patient-centered osteopathic care, which means I am constantly thinking through the anatomy and physiology of each individual in order to tailor my treatments based on what my patients need. I was privileged to be part of the CAO staff for over two years as an instructor for several introductory anatomy and physiology courses. My love of teaching was born alongside my love of Osteopathy and because I believe that education about one's own body is vital to the healing process, I try my best to translate an educational experience into my treatments.
I am proud to be part of the Whitehorse community and honoured to have the opportunity to work with so many Yukoners on their healing journey. It is my goal to educate every Yukoner on the benefits of Osteopathic treatment, one patient at a time.
I look forward to the privilege of working with you.
Until then, I wish you the best in health.
Curious by nature, I spontaneously tend to observe, to listen and to understand people as well as my surroundings. Originally from Montreal, I started travelling on a journey that took me to different countries and different cultures. I was fascinated to witness how life expresses itself in different places on the planet, to experience the unique relationship between humans and their environment in each place and its consequences. During that life experience period, a new curiosity arose, a new quest: the desire of a better understanding of human beings, the interrelations between the physical, physiological, emotional and the spiritual. This led me to study shiatsu massage therapy based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and to engage thereafter into rigorous osteopathic studies. These tools allowed me to better understand myself in order to be able to help others on a healing journey of their own.
I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the Whitehorse community this winter in English or French. My objective is to offer support to your healing process. As every story is unique, it will be together as a team, that we will find the right tailored path towards an improved balance, mobility and general health.
I looking forward to meeting you and working together!
