As much as I miss the East Coast the big city of Toronto is now home. Since moving to Toronto I have completed my master’s degree at the University of Toronto in Professional Kinesiology. I work for Reebok Canada as the Central Canada Regional Coordinator for Build Our Kids’ Success (BOKS). BOKS is a free physical activity program that improves our children physically, mentally, emotionally and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement. I am so grateful to be working for a program that is impacting positive change across Canada.
I am currently working as a Registered Nurse at the Intensive Care Unit at St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Also, my experience with the Acadia SMILE program provided me with the confidence and knowledge to work at my current role as Challenger Baseball Canada National Coordinator. This volunteer role provides an opportunity to work with the Toronto Blue Jays, Baseball Canada and Little League Canada to develop and grow baseball opportunities for individuals with disabilities across the country.
Since graduating from Acadia in 2007, I moved to Toronto to study at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. I am currently the owner, founder and primary practitioner of Trinity Chiropractic Health and Wellness in Richmond Hill Ontario; providing chiropractic care, acupuncture, rehabilitation and wellness plans to patients.
It has taken two additional years of university, countless post-graduate courses and three cities to land my dream job. As a Physiotherapist working in private practice I help clients move freely again after injury, and maximize their physical performance in life and sport.
I am a very proud graduate from the Acadia Kinesiology program. Since graduating from Acadia in 2010, I have moved to Calgary, Alberta, completed a second degree and am now working for the city as a police officer. I can honestly say the Acadia KINE experience is one I will never forget and the relationships I built there are life long!
