Jonathan was born and raised in Miramichi, New Brunswick and moved to Campbell River with his family in his teenage years. He immediately fell in love with the area and the people, and considers himself lucky to have grown up in places with ample outdoor opportunities.

Jonathan is a graduate of Dalhousie University’s Masters of Physiotherapy program (2017) and the University of Victoria’s Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology program (2015). He worked in a private Physiotherapy clinic for 4 years in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia treating a variety of orthopaedic and neuropathic conditions. Jonathan was also been a Teaching Assistant at the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University for 2 years. He has furthered his education with post-graduate training in orthopaedics (Canadian Physio Association Level 3), hand/wrist conditions and pain science. Jonathan has completed his Dry Needling (IMS) Certification, and is now offering this service to his patients as part of their physiotherapy rehab program.

Jonathan enjoys an active lifestyle with an interest in fishing, hunting and spending time outdoors. In turn, working as a Physiotherapist gives him the opportunity to help others get back to or continue to enjoy the activities they love. Jonathan believes in working as a team with his patients to develop an appropriate treatment plan to help them reach their goals. He is excited to take the tools and skills he has developed over the past several years to help the people of Campbell River.
