Technique with baby


I am a 1986 CMCC graduate. That year, I completed chiropractic boards in the following jurisdictions: Canada, Ontario, Québec and the United States.

I am the past president of the well-known Locum referral service of the late 80’s and early 90’s called Professional Chiropractic Locum Services, serving all of the province of Ontario and Québec.

I then operated a busy family practice in Orléans, Ontario. In 2008, I started a new locum service, the Eastern Ontario Locum Service. This type of practice allows me great flexibility while raising a busy family. Doing locums, I have worked in no less than 75 different clinics over the last 29 years.

I am trained in Diversified Technique, Motion Palpation, Activator, certified in the Thompson Technique by Dr. John Minardi, D.C. of the Minardi Integrated Systems, and I am also certified in the Cox Technique. In 2011-12, I enrolled in the ICA Wellness Certification Program taught by Dr. James Chestnut and Dr. Richard Baxter. I also completed my AODA in 2011.

Other skills include OCA PMP, Chirowrite, Nexy-Soft, Chartmaster, Cliniko, rolling thermal scan and Static EMG scan, digital posture screening and evaluation, x-ray taking (traditional or digital), various modalities, soft tissue therapies and orthotic fitting.

In the last few years, my continuing education has included CCO’s record keeping seminar, Winter Radiology Review (2007-17), CCPA Risk management projects (2008- now) Chirowrite webminars, Techniques with Chiropractic Master, Dr. Len Faye (2010), Thompson Seminar Series with Dr. Minardi (2011), Pediatric Seminar with Dr. Liz Anderson-Peacock (2011), the ICA Wellness Certification Program, and finally the Cox Certification course in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in November 2014. I completed Part III of the Cox course in October 2015 and a hands-on workshop for the treatment of the cervical spine in Chicago in October 2015 also. I attended the Life University Chiropractic Conference in Montreal in April 2017.

I hold memberships with the CCO, CCA, OCA, EOCS and L’Ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec. I am fully covered by CCPA.

I am experienced and at ease in treating newborns right up to the geriatric population using different techniques and approaches.

Personal Background

I have been volunteering actively in my community, namely at my children’s schools, elementary and high school councils since 2004, Girl Guides Movement (2002-08), church volunteer, La Leche League since 1993 and Cumberland Lions Club (Effective Speaking Contest).

My personal interests are about travelling, health-conscious cooking, fitness, outdoor activities and sports, cultural events and reading.
