"I believe that interacting with animals makes us better people and that many lessons can be learned from them"
When I left my hometown in northern Canada to study chiropractic, I had no idea that 25 years later I would be living here, adjusting people and animals, in the Netherlands.
My choice to study chiropractic was an obvious one. Chiropractic has been part of my life since I was a child. Its holistic and vitalist phylosophy corresponds to my vision of health and resonates with me.
After graduating (2003), I practiced in Montreal until I moved to Europe in 2005. I lived in Paris for a few years before settling in Amsterdam in 2007.
Fast forward to 2021. I adopted a dog, and as you may know, a lot changes when you bring a pet into your home. The energy and routine change, and you, the owner, change too. I realized that spending time with my dog and other animals brought me great satisfaction. I wanted to combine my knowledge and experience in chiropractic with my passion for animals. This is how I decided to learn animal chiropractic at the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic in Germany.
I am grateful to chiropractic for the positive impact it has on my own health, but also for the fact that I get the opportunity to help others, people and animals, so that they can enjoy life to the fullest.
In my free time I like to be outside, preferably in nature. I love hiking, skiing, and paddle boarding with my dog. I like to take long walks on the beach or in the forest, on the Dutch coast, on the Wadden Islands or in the Veluwe. Grounding myself in nature is one of the best ways for me to reconnect and recharge my batteries. It seems to me that the healing power of nature is underestimated. Hence the importance of taking care of our environment. If we take care of nature, it in turn takes care of us.
If you have any questions or want to know how your pet can benefit from chiropractic, feel free to contact me.
