Nate earned his MSc in 2012, graduating from the Master of Physical Therapy program at the University of British Columbia. Prior to that he completed his BSc in 2009, graduating with a degree in kinesiology from Simon Fraser University. Vancouver is still home for Nate and he has worked in Burnaby and Vancouver since graduating.
It was his own personal experience with injury that initially drew Nate to the world of physiotherapy. As a teenager, he badly broke his ankle playing competitive soccer. After being in a cast for 6 weeks and struggling to recover, it was working intensively with a physiotherapist that helped guide him back to health and return to playing soccer again at a highly competitive level. More importantly, it inspired him to study and train to be a physiotherapist himself. With his own experience top of mind, Nate continually strives to guide each of his patients back to their desired level of activity and to enjoy the sports or hobbies they are most passionate about.
Ongoing learning and keeping up-to-date with the latest research have always been important to Nate. Since graduating, he continued to add to his knowledge base and skill set with courses in Functional Dry Needling (FDN), Graston and Mulligan techniques, amongst others.
More recently, he earned a second Masters degree, graduating from the University of Western Ontario (UWO) with a Masters of Clinical Science in Advanced Health Care Practice (MClSc). With this degree, Nate is now a proud Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT), which is the highest level of manual therapy that can be achieved through the orthopaedic division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and is an internationally recognized level of merit.
Outside of the clinic and gym you’ll most likely find him spending time skiing, hiking, or golfing with his wife and friends.
