Nate completed his Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology from SFU before going on to earn a Masters of Physical Therapy from UBC. What initially got him interested in physiotherapy was an injury he suffered while playing soccer for North Delta United. During a game his foot got stuck in the turf and he went down awkwardly, resulting in a broken ankle. This injury ended up being somewhat of a blessing in disguise as it opened him up to the world of sports rehab. Intensive physiotherapy helped him get back to playing in high level competition, and more importantly, it inspired him to become a physiotherapist.
Continuous learning has always been a passion of his and he has continued to further his knowledge and hone his skills by completing courses in Functional Dry Needling (IMS), Graston technique, and Mulligan techniques, amongst others.
Most recently, he completed a Master of Clinical Science in Advanced Health Care Practice (MClSc) through the University of Western Ontario. As a successful graduate of the program he also became a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT), which is the highest level of manual therapy recognized through the Canadian Orthopaedic Division.
Outside of the clinic you’ll likely find him either at the gym, skiing, hiking, or golfing with his wife and friends.
