Lester holds a Master of Physiotherapy with Distinction from the University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Simon Fraser University. He moved back to British Columbia in 2018 after working in both private practice and hospital settings in Sydney, Australia. Lester has a profound passion for helping individuals recover from their initial injuries, and enjoys pushing them to reach their optimum level of functioning. His passion began when he was forced to the sidelines following long-term injuries from university-level volleyball and competitive basketball. As both a physiotherapist and a devoted athlete, Lester takes the time with each individual to find the root cause of the problem and addresses their immediate concerns while also focusing on prevention of future issues
Lester takes a humble, down-to-earth but confident approach when communicating with each patient, in order to prevent any barriers to optimal treatment and recovery. He uses a combination of manual therapy, IMS/dry needling, and exercise prescription along with education to target the presented injury effectively. He has also committed to a lifelong pursuit of learning and clinical excellence, taking multiple courses in manual therapy, and management of tendinopathies, concussion, and chronic migraines/headaches. Lester enjoys treating all musculoskeletal and sports injuries, but has a strong interest in the elite athlete population and getting them back to peak level performance through treatment and strength-and-conditioning.
Lester is ecstatic to finally be able to impact the Richmond community he grew up in. Outside of the clinic, he is a huge NBA fan and supporter of the Canucks. Typically, he can be found on the court playing basketball and volleyball, or whipping the heavy bag in class at his newfound love in kickboxing. He also enjoys jamming out on the acoustic guitar, and satisfying his coffee connoisseur taste buds at the best cafes in Vancouver.
