I'm want to help you or your team/organization reduce the risk of throwing related injuries by developing and implementing an evidence-based assessment, training and rehabilitation program.
These are the ways you can work with me:
- PickMyBrain Call
- Coffee and Conversation
- Brainstorming Sessions
- Speaking Engagements
- Monthly Concierge Athlete Healthcare Navigation
*Note, if you are interested in a formal medical consultation please have your Family Physician or Specialist complete a referral to me at the UBC Allan McGavin Sports Medicine Centre*
Athletes, Coaches, Parents, Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists, Sports Medicine Physicians, Personal Trainers, Biomechanists, etc.
My passion is helping young athletes reach their peak potential. I take a 360 view of throwing related pain and together we will reduce risk factors for injury, identify improper movement patterns and ensure a strong kinetic link is the basis of a return to throwing program.
Up to 75% of pitchers report shoulder, elbow or back pain that limits their performance. Let’s change that.
I am an Olympian turned Coach turned Baseball/Softball Physiatrist. Physiatrists are medical doctors with 5 years of specialty training in the non-operative diagnosis and management of orthopaedic and neurological conditions. I've sub-specialized in Sports Medicine and my clinical interests are in overuse injuries specific to baseball and softball.
It is my privilege to pay-it-forward in the game I love.
The A.C.E.S. Framework of Physical Activity Prescription.

CANpitch: Canada’s Grassroots Youth Pitching Program
I am a co-creator of Softball Canada’s CANpitch Program. 2500+ youth annually receive instruction on the fundamental skills of windmill pitching.
I spend my free time researching and discussing the biomechanics of softball pitching and the contributing factors to common softball injuries. I've helped educate 100+ beginner pitching coaches across Canada using a National Coaching Certification Program I helped write for Softball Canada.
I enjoy educating athletes, parents and coaches about the power of play and harms of early sport specialization.
I was featured in Resident Doctors of BC's April 2018 edition.
