Philosophy of Care 

During medical school I was initially interested in being a pediatrician, but after a pediatric orthopedic medical mission in Africa my career path changed. I was drawn to the specialty because of the ability to make positive changes in children’s lives. I started my orthopedic training in Canada and then moved to Australia for subspecialty training in cerebral palsy before returning to Boston to round out my education. I feel fortunate to have had the experience of health care delivery from Canada, Australia

Professional History

I grew up in Toronto, Canada and completed high school and Upper Canada College. After high school I moved to Victoria on the West coast of Canada to play rugby and study biology. I graduated university with high honors and was a Rhodes Scholar nominee. After obtaining a degree in biology and pre-medical studies I returned to Ontario to complete medical school and orthopedic training at Western Ontario.

I moved to Melbourne, Australia to pursue a pediatric orthopedic fellowship at the Royal Children’s Hospital under Professor Kerr Graham. It was here I obtained my subspecialty training in cerebral palsy. After Melbourne, I returned to Boston to complete a second fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital. I have remained on staff since 2010.

I am active member of the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine and the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America. I am the recipient of the St. Giles Young Investigator Award (POSNA), The Clinician Scientist Development Program Award (CSDP) and Charles H Hood Foundation Child Health and Research Award. My research interests include outcome measurement in cerebral palsy, trauma outcomes and management of Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease.
