She completed her Fellowship in Manipulative Physiotherapy through the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy and received her Diploma of Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2011 (FCAMPT). She uses these specialized skills daily in her practice and bases her treatment approach largely around manual therapy, specific and individualized exercise prescription.

Her current studies involve Movement Impairment. She travels to St. Louis Missouri twice a year to study Movement System Impairment with Shirley Sahrmann at the Washington University School of Physical Therapy.
