About Cariboo Orthotics
Meet the Team
We are your local Cariboo specialists in human kinetics and foot health.
I am the proud owner and operator of Cariboo Orthotics! I joined the downtown Williams Lake business and medical community in October 2017. I am a certified Canadian Pedorthist and have been working in the field of Biomechanics, Orthotics and Sports Medicine since 2015 (originally working for Kintec Footwear and Orthotics in the lower mainland). I completed a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia followed by a 2-year Pedorthic Apprenticeship program to obtain my C. Ped (C) designation. I volunteer on the Pedorthic Association board of Complaints and Investigations and am a board member of the Business Improvement Association for Downtown Williams Lake. I am involved in local business groups, continuing education and personal development. I have always been very passionate about the human body, how it moves, keeping mine healthy and helping others do the same. I have a colourful background in sport & recreation and currently enjoy long hiking treks, mountain biking, snowboarding, yoga, weight training and sometimes compete in sprint triathlons & other races. Since moving to the Cariboo from Vancouver, I have found my home. I am obsessed with our surrounding mountains, forests and lakes. I can’t get enough of the wilderness expanding in all directions around the city.
I graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2018 with a degree in Kinesiology and eagerly wanted to help people in a practical way. I have been working in the field of orthopaedic health care since 2019. I developed a keen interest in lower extremities early in my career and became a Canadian Certified Clinical Pedorthist in 2021. As a member of both the Pedorthic Association of Canada and the College of Pedorthics of Canada, I have continued to advance my career with continuing education such as: Advanced Brace Fitting Certification, Certified Compression Fitter, Orthotic Science microcredential, Diabetes Pathology and Management microcredential, FMS Level 1, FMS Level 2; and Approach into and Management of Patients with Lower Extremity Pain Course. I have also trained to become a leader for Self Management BC to help people with chronic conditions. Outside of Cariboo Orthotics I teach yoga and fitness classes in our community in roles where I can continue my passion for helping people find ways to stay active, healthy and pain free. In my free time I enjoy mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, yoga, playing recreational sports, and partaking in various outdoor activities. I love to explore and travel whenever possible. I have a passion for holistic health and enjoy reading and learning about the complexity of the human body, mind and soul.
