Concussion Rehab Lab


I’m the founder of Concussion Rehab Lab, leading the way in concussion care, clinical mentorship and research.

I’m a registered nurse, manual osteopathic practitioner, and a concussion clinician and researcher. I am currently pursuing my PhD at the University of Toronto. In a nutshell I like to say I am a Brain Crusader. I have dedicated my life to helping others improve their brain health and to feel like themselves again after concussion through effective, evidence-based concussion care.

What makes me different?

While there are so many different practitioners to choose from, I pride myself on my unique Rehab Lab Approach, which drives consistent positive results for patients suffering from post-concussion syndrome – whether from a recent concussion, chronic, or legacy concussion.
