Brenda leads a very active lifestyle, as she has competed in track & field and has also played volleyball, basketball, and ultimate Frisbee over the years. She also enjoys snowboarding and more recently, skate skiing. She has competed in six Ironman distance races and in 2014 earned a spot in the World Championship Ironman 70.3 race in Quebec. She is looking forward to continued involvement in this sport. To maintain strength and flexibility, and to counter the rigours of work and sport, she works out regularly at the gym.
Dr. Brenda was a director for the Board of Chiropractors of BC from 2003 to 2006. Her areas of interest in practice include athletics, whiplash, postural assessment & correction, ergonomics, stress reduction, and arthritis. She has spoken on these topics in the community on many occasions. Dr. Brenda also regularly attends seminars to learn as much as possible to help her clients. She has completed a one year course for certification in paediatric and pre-natal Chiropractic through the ICPA, and is certified in Webster technique. Dr. Brenda enjoys working with all types of people, and believes that everyone needs a good Chiropractor - one that they can rely on and build an ongoing relationship with.
Her chiropractic technique has evolved with her 23 years of clinical experience. There are many different ways of making adjustments, so Dr. Brenda mixes several styles, depending on what is most appropriate for the person she is working with. She practices mainly hands-on (Diversified) and is also proficient in Torque Release and Activator (instrument-assisted protocols) as well as Thompson technique (table drop pieces).
