She has developed a special interest and passion for treating those individuals with neurological impairments and has furthered her knowledge in this area of practice by taking introductory Neurodevelopmental Theory (NDT) and Bobath courses.

She enjoys travelling, spending time up at her family cottage in Haliburton, and participating in her own physical activity either at the gym or through organized sport like soccer and volleyball.
