What is your background & training?
Over the last 25 years of practice, I graduated from the HMN Utrecht, The Netherlands. I have done many post-graduate courses in the field of vestibular rehabilitation and Orthopaedics. I also have a Physical Education and Business Economics degree.
What inspired you to choose this career path?
As a child (a long time ago), I was injured frequently and had many visits with surgeons, doctors, physiotherapists and nurses. The time I spent with my physiotherapists was painful and pleasant at the same time. It became clear to me that I was drawn to the role the physiotherapist plays in the medical field.
Why do you choose to work at Treloar?
I came to Canada from the Netherlands to live and work. The group of amazingly talented colleagues make it a great work and learning environment. After 24 years I still feel the same way.
What are you personally passionate about?
I am passionate about having meaningful relationships with family, friends, clients and colleagues. However parenting four children and a dog is my number one passion. Beer soccer and pizza are a close second.
