About Us

We both went to the University of British Columbia where we both did a Bachelor of Kinesiology. But, we didn’t know each other then. It wasn’t until we both moved to Portland, Oregon for chiropractic school when we met. Bonded by being fellow Canadians, laughing at bad jokes and studying until we couldn’t see straight, we’ve been friends ever since. 

Sophie completed a Master of Science in Sports Medicine in addition to her Doctor of Chiropractic, and Ryan did a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine in addition to his. See below for more about our credentials.

Sophie’s current interests are running, rock climbing, hiking, camping, and exploring the outdoors. Bring up cooking at camp and you may get stuck with her for hours. Fun fact: She’s also fluent in Cantonese. 

Ryan’s interests are running, playing hockey, rowing, and building furniture. He hopes to be conversational in Kiswahili soon. He loves peanut butter more than you thought possible. 

There’s a few more of us behind the pages and in the videos. You’ll get to know us all as time goes on. But for now, thank you for stopping by, and we hope you enjoy all of our movement resources!
