Before becoming a chiropractor, Michelle worked as a Kinesiologist where she discovered her passion in healthcare. She gained valuable experience working with athletes, ICBC motor vehicle accidents, long-term disability, and WorkSafe cases.

Her approach has a strong emphasis on movement and patient independence. She regularly collaborates with Kinesiologists, RMTs, and physiotherapists as she strongly believes that patient care encompasses a multimodal and integrated approach.
