After graduating from Acadia University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Physical Education, Paul went on to obtain a Diploma in Massage Therapy from ICT Northumberland College in 2000. The knowledge gained in these two programs gave him a great base of knowledge to begin training as a Certified Pedorthist. After a two year apprenticeship, Paul completed his training as a Certified Pedorthist and has been treating patients in Nova Scotia ever since. Paul is a member of the Pedorthic Association of Canada and the College of Pedorthics of Canada. His expertise in foot and lower extremity conditions has allowed him the opportunity to speak at many local events on the benefits of orthotics and educate people on proper footwear selection. Paul has a keen interest in technology and how it can be utilized in medical professions for improved outcomes, more efficient methods of treating, and educating patients.
