In her spare time Amy plays competitive soccer and regularly attends yoga and pilates classes. She also currently volunteer teaches Hatha yoga with COAST mental health.
” I grew up on the North Shore playing sports and enjoying the outdoors. As a competitive athlete playing multiple sports I have benefited from chiropractic care since I was a child. I always knew that chiropractic care worked but as I got older I realized that I was one of the only players that was never sidelined by an injury. This sparked my interest in health care and lead me to complete my bachelors degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science. I went on to complete my doctorate of chiropractic degree in Toronto and I am excited to be back in North Vancouver working at Mountain Health & Performance.”
