About Cariboo Orthotics
Meet the Team
We are your local Williams Lake 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 as of 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 have a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia followed by the 2-year Pedorthic Apprenticeship program to obtain my C. Ped (C) designation. I am on the Pedorthic Association board of Complaints and Investigations and a member of the Williams Lake Chamber of Commerce. 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 it healthy, and helping others do the same. I have a colorful background in sport and currently enjoy long hiking treks, mountain biking, snowboarding, yoga, weight training and sometimes compete in sprint triathlons. Since moving to the Cariboo from Vancouver, I have grown to love the area. 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 Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. I am currently working towards becoming a certified Pedorthist! I really enjoy being able to help a variety of people by providing them with the education and tools they need to help themselves stay on their feet. I am a certified compression stocking fitter as well as a brace fitter. Outside of Cariboo Orthotics I teach yoga and have a passion for helping people find ways to stay active, healthy and pain free. Working for Cariboo Orthotics is not only furthering my skill set, it is also giving me the opportunity to share my knowledge of biomechanics with the community. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, snowboarding, playing recreational sports, and partaking in various outdoor activities. I also 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.
