Dan was born and raised on the West Island of Montreal. Early in life he realized that physical fitness was an integral part of living a happy, healthy lifestyle. He then moved down the “401” to St. Catharines, Ontario where he balanced numerous sporting activities with playing music, school and work. Currently Dan has found his home in Calgary and is enjoying his 18th year in Alberta.
Through sports Dan gained first-hand experience of physical injuries and how these injuries can affect your lifestyle. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Ottawa, Dan spent two years studying Athletic Therapy at Mount Royal University which gave him further understanding of how the body compensates for injury and helped him gain further knowledge of the mechanisms of injury.
Married to his wife Nicole, Family activities with their son Curtis certainly brings excitement and busy lifestyle. I enjoy being active, whether it be walking our dog, hiking or skating.
Dan has been the Director of The Gaitway for over 15 years, developing a treatment approach which combines accurate assessment of movement patterns with prevention and correction utilizing Custom Prescription orthotics.
