I am a 1986 Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (Toronto) 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 and replacement service of the late 80’s and early 90’s called Professional Chiropractic Locum Services, serving all of the provinces 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 allowed me great flexibility while raising a busy family. Doing locums, I have worked in no less than 75 different clinics over the last 33 years. In 2014, I opened a home-practice in Orléans, due to a large demand for chiropractic and holistic care.
I am trained in Diversified Technique, Motion Palpation, Activator, and certified in the Thompson Technique by Dr. John Minardi, D.C. of the Minardi Integrated Systems. 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. In November 2014, I got certified in the Cox Technique, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. In 2018, I added the C.A.T.S. technique to my repertoire. It is used to help symptoms of head injuries, concussions and headaches/migraines to name a few.
Other skills include knowledge in chiro software, 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 (2007-19), CCPA Risk management projects (2008- now) Chirowrite webminars, Techniques with Chiropractic Master, Dr. Len Faye (2010), Thompson Seminar Series with Dr. Minardi (2011 certified), Pediatric Seminar with Dr. Liz Anderson-Peacock (2011), the ICA Wellness Certification Program, Certification in Cox Technique in Nov. 2014, hands-on workshop for cervical treatment using Cox Technique and Phase III Cox Seminar in Chicago in October 2015, Life University Chiropractic Conference in Montreal, April 2017, C.A.T.S. Technique in October 2017, Cox refreshers every year since 2014.
I hold memberships with the CCO, CCA, OCA, EOCS and L’Ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec. I am fully covered by CCPA.
I have become an assistant–instructor for the Thompson Technique with Dr. John Minardi, BhK, DC, in Toronto since 2012.
I am experienced and at ease in treating newborns right up to the geriatric population using different techniques and approaches.
I was born and raised in Trois-Rivières, Québec. I am the mother of three adult-age daughters.
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.
I am fully bilingual, both in French and English.
