Brandon grew up twenty minutes outside of Belleville, Ontario on the family dairy farm. From a young age Brandon had a passion for sports and outdoor activities. He applied a strong work ethic learned on the farm to excel in both academics and competitive sports. Brandon focused mainly on playing competitive hockey and baseball during his youth and teens, while expanding his experiences to rugby and football in high school. It was at that stage in life when Brandon first recognized his dream of becoming a physiotherapist, while shadowing at a sports physiotherapy clinic in his hometown.
In pursuit of his career goals, Brandon completed a Bachelor of Honours Degree Specialization of Kinesiology at Western University. He specialized in the areas of exercise physiology, biomechanics and athletic injuries. Brandon then achieved a Masters of Physiotherapy degree from Queen’s University in 2018.
As a lifelong learner, he is looking forward to continuing his educational goals with a focus on dry needling and acupuncture, advanced courses in assessment and treatment of upper and lower extremities, concussion management and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).
As an avid outdoor enthusiast, when Brandon is not in the clinic you will most likely find him on the golf course, at the ski hill or on the outdoor trails in the surrounding area.
As DEFY’s newest member of the team, you can expect Brandon to bring an energized, positive and enthusiastic approach each and every day. He looks forward to creating fun and professional relationships with all of his new clients, while empowering them to move and perform at their highest level.
