Shawn received his Masters of Science in Physiotherapy from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2016. Prior to this, as a member of Washington State University’s NCAA Track and Field team, Shawn also earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 2013.
Shawn was born and raised in the Lower Mainland, immersed in the world of sports, playing almost every sport throughout his life and with all the injuries to prove it. From a very young age, he was obsessed with the process of rehabilitation from both injuries and illnesses. As a former international-caliber track and field athlete and cancer survivor, Shawn has always had a special passion for promoting health and wellness in others.
He enjoys working with patients of all ages and function, although he has a special interest in treating patients in the sports community and people suffering from persistent pain.
Shawn’s philosophy and approach to physiotherapy is to empower his patients through education, safe and functional exercises progressions, and manual techniques, equipping them with the tools they need to better maximize their health and function. Keen on the belief of continuing life long education to help his patients, he has gone on to earn a certificate in Anatomical Neuropathy Inter Muscular Stimulation (AN-IMS). He places an emphasis on spending time with his patients and helping them better understand their pain.
In his spare time, Shawn loves spending time with friends and family, reading, playing basketball, working out, going on outdoor adventures, and has recently developed a love for surfing.
