1) What is your current position? What does a typical work day look like for you?
Typical day is providing chiropractic services to my patients, but also running day to day business tasks and constantly figuring out ways to be more efficient.
2) How did your education in BPK influence your career?
BPK introduced me to human anatomy and physiology which sparked my interest and curiosity to learn more about the human body. BPK made me realize that I can help someone live a better life.
3) Who in BPK had an impact on you and why?
I particularly enjoyed working with Dr. Tom and Victoria Claydon. They both supported me tremendously in my last year at BPK and my research was able to contribute to a publication focusing on orthostatic hypotension in the elderly and their risk of falls.
4) What is your favourite memory of your time at SFU as an undergraduate?
Working closely with my professors through research and my labs let me apply my knowledge in real time. My supervisors gave me the chance to explore my creativity, drive, and passion to be the best version of myself while helping the team with their research.
5) What advice would you give to today’s BPK student?
Go beyond just your courses, do co-op, talk to professors and offer to volunteer in their labs, study abroad. Use your time at SFU to explore your options and have fun with it.
