My passion for physiotherapy came to me later in life. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in anatomy from McGill, I knew I wanted to work in healthcare but I had no idea which path to take. Nothing felt quite like the right fit for me. However, I had always been interested in neuro. I explored that interest in my gap year by doing some research on the neurophysiology of pain at an Orthopedic Hospital in Montreal, where I’m from. It was there that I got to collaborate with physios at the hospital and get to see all of the amazing work that they do. I was so excited because finally, I found a profession that aligned perfectly with my interests and the impact I wanted to make in healthcare. One thing lead to another and I moved to Toronto to complete my Master’s in PT at U of T and now as a licensed PT resident. I love exploring my interest in neuro and ortho in my practice. The physio world is incredible and I feel so lucky to have joined a profession that has such a profound impact on their clients and on the community.
