My journey into chiropractic started at a very young age with a simple low back injury. My father had taken me to see his chiropractor. I had never been to a chiropractor and was more than curious as to what to expect from my first visit. When I walked in to my chiropractor’s office I was awestruck by the warmth and friendly nature of the clinic. It felt as though the clinic radiated with healing energy. An energy that I had not experience in any other doctors office. My problem was diagnosed and treated, however my chiropractor didn’t stop there. He began to teach me how to live well and be strong. It was that day…That single experience… that led me down the path to becoming a chiropractor.
In 1997 I graduated from Western State Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. I settled in the community of Sherwood Park where my wife and I now reside. Together we have three beautiful little girls. With her support and my ongoing vision I start my own chiropractic wellness centre. Every day in practice I strive to create that same warm, healing, and energetic environment that left such an impression on me as a child. Everyday patients walk into our office seeking help and I strive not only to get them well, but to teach them how to live and be well. Our patients learn that life is not meant hurt, but should be lived. Over the last 15 years my practice has grown primarily from the positive experiences that patients have enjoyed in our office. It is that experience that creates that environment that I have worked so hard to create.

I started Baseline Chiropractic Centre in 2005.Chiropractic has been an integral part of my life since the age of 10. I was a competitive swimmer and suffered a shoulder injury. One of my swim coaches was also a chiropractor. My experience was a truly eye opening one, even at that age. My shoulder improved so fast, and I was able to return to swimming and even improve my performance.
In high school my chiropractor asked me to come and work at his office as an office assistant. This job gave me further insight to the greatness of chiropractic. People of all ages with many different issues were being helped by the chiropractors. So many got better, and were empowered to improve their lives and health.
In chiropractic college, I took a particular interest in children. I took many extra seminars during school to expand my knowledge. In practice, I want to make a difference in children’s lives so they grow up to be more well than we were. I want them to be empowered to take their health into their own hands. Being a mom of two has further developed my interest in spinal health in kids.
I love being a part of everyone’s journey to a better life, creating a balance between physical, chemical and emotional health.

I initially was introduced to chiropractic in high school after a low back injury. It was then where I first considered becoming a chiropractor; although I took the long road to achieving this. After taking 3 years off after high school I completed a 2 year diploma program in Physical Therapy Assistant from Grant MacEwan University and completed three years of my Kinesiology degree from the University of Alberta. I then packed my bags and moved across country where I completed my Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. I graduated from Chiropractic school in June 2010 and returned to Alberta that summer. After being a patient of Dr. Fleck’s for a couple of years it was an exciting opportunity to join the team at Baseline Chiropractic in August of 2010.
After a shoulder injury in University I was exposed to Active Release treatments. It was this firsthand experience that inspired me to take the Active Release courses to become full body certified. I am also certified in Graston as well as the Webster technique.
I am passionate about helping you feel your absolute best through chiropractic adjustments, Active Release, rehabilitation exercises, Graston, and nutrition. I consider myself to be an enthusiastic lifelong learner and am always looking to evolve my practice.
In my spare time I love to kick box, lift weights, hang out with my favorite canine Jack and spend quality time with family and friends. I absolutely love my job and can’t imagine doing anything else.
Chiropractic has always been a huge part of my life. I first became a patient at the age of nine, when my mom took me to see her chiropractor following a sports injury. I was amazed by the results I saw in just a few treatments, which quickly allowed me to return to my normal activities. Since then, chiropractic care has allowed me to keep up with an active lifestyle, while feeling great!
Given my experience, it seemed fitting to pursue chiropractic as a career. After three years towards a Bachelor of Science at the University of Alberta, I moved to Portland, Oregon to begin the Doctor of Chiropractic Program. There, at the University of Western States I was able to finish both my B. Sc. and complete my D.C. concurrently.
After my recent graduation I moved back to Sherwood Park. I am so excited to begin my career amongst friends and family with the amazing team here at BCWC! I hope to create an experience similar to my own for patients, through treatments including chiropractic manipulation, soft tissue therapy, Graston, and rehabilitative exercises.
When I’m not in the office you can find me with friends and family at yoga, spin class, or out on the trails around Sherwood Park. I hope to inspire others to be their own health care advocates. I would love to be a part of your journey to a happier and healthier lifestyle. My goal as a chiropractor is to keep you functioning well biomechanically so you are able to continue participating in the day-to-day activities that you love!
