I received my collaborative diploma/degree in physiotherapy from Mohawk College and McMaster University in 1985 and received the OPA award for clinical excellence upon graduation. Since that time, I have practiced as a physiotherapist in the Hamilton area at HHSC (Chedoke site) and at West Haldimand Hospital as the Physiotherapy Department Manager. I have also tutored in the BHSc.P.T. Program at McMaster University from 1990 to 1995 and have remained active in the Quality Management Program for the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.
Since 1995 I have also spent much time in private practice at West End Physiotherapy Clinic in Hamilton. I became involved in the OTA/PTA Program at Mohawk College when the program was started in 1995. I have received the MSA faculty award in 2008, 2013 and 2015. I am currently the OTA/PTA Program/Fieldwork Coordinator. I am passionate about physiotherapy and contributing to inter professional education.
