Since i was a kid i always had strong communication skills and a desire to help others. I grew up speaking three languages (English, Russian and French), which has made me a great listener.

After receiving my education at the west coast college of massage therapy, i quickly realized that i chose the right field.

I was lucky enough to gain a lot of experience working with patients seeking treatment for a variety of reasons. I worked with children and families at canucks place, acute and chronic burn or trauma victims at the Vancouver general hospital and varsity athletes at the university of British Columbia. Since then, using my constantly evolving skills to help others has been an addicting experience, and i strive to be the best therapist i can possibly be. I enjoy digging for articles that challenge my core beliefs as a practitioner because i find reading the best way to stay up to date with the world of medical science. I believe in strong communication with patients and that educating people about their own bodies is the best way to strive for a better quality of life. Re-evaluating progress and never being afraid to seek advice or help when needed has allowed me to create a strong mindset for my practice.

Although my family and career are both very important to me, sports are not very far behind. Growing up i played almost every sport possible and although i was definitely never the most talented, i tried to make up for it with a elite level of work ethic. Since my hands are my work, i have replaced competitive sports with outdoor activities and British Columbia has been an amazing back yard. I also enjoy playing the guitar and piano, both of which i learned by myself.
