Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, I have been a practicing chiropractor since 1999.  My education started at Lakehead University with an Honours Bachelor’s in Biology.  I then attended Logan University in St. Louis Missouri receiving a Doctorate Degree in Chiropractic. 

While operating a family-based practice in Thunder Bay, I have traveled throughout northwestern Ontario providing valuable chiropractic care thru satellite clinics.  I have also been fortunate to have had the experience of working with individuals from special athletic groups such as the Canadian Olympic team, NFL, MLB, NHL,  and Lakehead University varsity sports programs.  This exposure to such a diverse group of athletes has helped me develop a practical treatment approach helping my patients stay in the game.   I have to say that I love Northwestern Ontario with all it's friendly, helpful people.  Providing a clinic that reflects the values of our community is something that I am very proud of.
