Samuel was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. Prior to calling Eugene home, he lived and worked in Vancouver, British Columbia and Honolulu, Hawaii. An avid sports fan, Samuel grew up playing baseball, soccer, and rugby. He gained his interest in physical therapy after rehabilitating a shoulder injury he sustained playing rugby. After earning his Honours BA in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario, he went on to complete his Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto. He has been practicing physical therapy since 2010. Samuel enjoys treating all orthopaedic injuries and has a special affinity for ankle, shoulder, and knee injuries.
In addition to working full-time, Samuel is currently in his second year of an orthopaedic fellowship program through The North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy. In his spare time, he enjoys working out, hiking, board games, playing soccer, and cheering on the Toronto Blue Jays.
