I was born and raised with chiropractic because my dad is a chiropractor. I love the way that he helps people to get better with practically anything else than his hands. I used to work at his office when I was a teenager, and when I saw how dynamic, social and happy his clinic was, I knew I wanted to do the same. I will get to help people in a way that I think is the most rewarding and fascinating that I know.
What do you love about music/performing?
I have been playing the violin since the age of three, and often played on stage. I have always felt that I play better in front of people, because the audience brings me so much energy. Before studying chiropractic, music was my whole life, and I did all my studies in classical violin. I still play on a regular base in a symphonic orchestra and in a musical comedy band.
What are you looking forward to at the Wave 2014?
I am really pleased that Benjamin Zander, conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, will be a speaker for the Wave 2014. It is an honor for me to see his speak. I am also really excited that many people who are not chiropractors, are coming to speak and share their life experience. I hope I will learn a lot in the two days at the Wave 2014.
Where do you see yourself practicing once you are out of school?
I plan to practice in Montréal. I want to work with musicians and help professional violinists and students with their playing-related injuries. In the province of Québec, Canada, there are not many chiropractors who are specialized in treating professional musicians. Musicians don’t really know enough about chiropractic. It will be a mission for my future practice to help them have a better lifestyle, to help prevent and treat all these injuries.
