Brandon completed the Master of Science, Physiotherapy program at the University of Alberta after completing a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting with Honours from the same institution. His professional career began as an accountant, but after a motor vehicle accident in his first year of office work, Brandon was exposed to the world of rehabilitation which sparked an interest, and later led to a career change. After first practicing in Edmonton, Brandon moved to Calgary in 2020. As a former athlete type turned desk jockey, Brandon has good insight into what can be done to resist the worst of the steady physical decline we see in our bodies with time, and one that our Western lifestyles seem to make inevitable. An avid learner, he loves podcasts and anything about human optimization, whether it be in health, performance, or nutrition. Since graduating, Brandon has completed post-graduate education in manual therapy, and spinal manipulations as well as having been trained in dry needling. These hands-on interventions complement his passion for strength and conditioning, and together lead to an integrated approach to treatment involving elements of both. As his career progressed he began to form a passion for working with older adults on healthy ageing. He is a strong believer in taking steps early to expand one's healthspan, in order to have as many independent and fulfilling years as possible. Outside of work, Brandon has always enjoyed playing hockey, skiing, and golfing, and loves to focus some attention on his own fitness through lifting weights. Whenever able, he likes to spend time overseas, and has visited nearly 50 countries, while trying to explore Calgary's own backyard when he can.
