We are passionate about providing great services that will help you achieve better health.
I was first introduced to chiropractic care in the summer of 1996. My mother suffered severe whiplash and neurological problems as a result of a traumatic motor vehicle accident. A drunk driver ran a stop sign hitting her on the passenger side. By accompanying my mother as a translator and interacting with her Chiropractor, I learned first hand about the importance of spine and nervous system health on a person’s quality of life. During many months of rehabilitation, chiropractic care made drastic improvements to my mother’s overall health. Her neck pain and headaches lessened; the numbness in her arms and hands improved; all of which lessened her need for the harmful drugs prescribed by her family doctor and medical specialists. It was this experience with my family that instilled a desire in me to change my pursuit of becoming a dentist, and provide care for suffering people like my mother by becoming a chiropractor without the use of drugs or surgery.
I finished my undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta and continued my graduate studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic West graduating with high honors. As a result of my personal experience with my family regarding car accidents, I completed special studies at the Spine Institute in San Diego, CA on Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology.
Being on the forefront of the most cutting edge technologies has become the focus of my desire; and being able to offer these treatments for patients who suffer from acute to chronic pain has become my passion.
I have made Abbotsford my home since 2003 and enjoy living and serving in the Fraser Valley with my beautiful wife Marissa, and son Jacob. This wonderful community has given me much and has enabled me to fulfill my goal and vision of building a modern, fully equipped Chiropractic clinic. I feel extremely blessed to have the privilege of giving back to its diverse people by providing quality, effective evidence-based Chiropractic and Medical care.
I am an Abbotsford local who was born and raised in this beautiful city. I completed my undergraduate studies in Kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley and continued my graduate studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic, in San Jose, California.
My passion for sport led me to my first involvement with chiropractics. While looking for options to alleviate my injuries, I found a chiropractor and got started on my recovery. I was so impressed with how drastically I was seeing improvement in my rehab, I wanted to learn more about this profession. What I learned blew my expectations out of the water; I was so impressed, seeing a waiting room that wasn’t just full of athletes, but people from all walks of life. I saw people looking happy and healthy after seeing them carefully maneuver into a treatment room. That was when I decided to learn even more about chiropractics.
The more I learned, the more I fell in love with the profession. I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life. My purpose is to help people live their best life by restoring optimal movement and function. As a practitioner, I use evidence based techniques to find the root cause of a problem and focus on preventative care to minimize future injury.
I can not express how happy I am to be back in the City in the Country. I look forward to seeing new people, and hopefully seeing some I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting

I was born in Winnipeg and moved to BC when I was a child. I’ve lived in many places throughout BC and am glad to have called Abbotsford home for 20+ years. My husband and I have three children and spend as much time with them as possible based on what their active schedules permit!
I became a part of the Cascadia team in January 2014 and love that I am a part of helping people enjoy a higher standard of life as a result of their Chiropractic care.
I have been a part of the Cascadia team since 2013. I was born in Saskatchewan but moved to Abbotsford, BC right before high school and have been here ever since. I now live with my husband and our son.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, enjoying life and watching my son grow. I would love to start drawing again but also like fashion, decorating, movies, and trying new things. I’ve earned a Medical Office Assistant Certificate and through Cascadia Chiropractic enjoy seeing patients accelerate their life through our office’s care.
I’ve been a part of the Cascadia team since June 2018, and I couldn’t be happier here. Seeing how the practitioners care for their patient’s health and well-being has been so inspiring. I have learned so much about the importance of chiropractic and spine health since first arriving, and I am excited to be apart of this amazing team and see where it takes me.
I grew up in a small town in northern BC, so when I moved to Mission in February 2018, I realized how different “big city” culture is. Thanks to the friendships I’ve made here, I’ve felt supported and it has helped me adjust to my new life in the Valley. When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteer work and spending time with my family and friends.
I am the newest addition to the Cascadia Team beginning in September and I LOVE it here! I have worked in Municipal Government for many years, so a Chiropractic Office is a new venture for me. I enjoy meeting and getting to know our patients; and it is amazing to see their improved health and smiles on their faces.
My husband and I are born and raised Albertans’ but have happily called ourselves’ British Columbians since 2015…and would never go back. We love the city of Abbotsford; the views, the life, and even the rain, which is better than snow anytime.
I have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. My daughter lives in BC and the rest of my babies are in Alberta. My main hobby is gardening which fortunately I can do most months of the year. In between gardening you will find me with my daughter (usually crafting something), catering to all the whims of our dogs and weekend cruising in my husbands’ Corvette…with him of course!
