Honours Health Studies: Management and Policy
Kristen began working as a Kinesiologist for HealthQuarters in early 2013 to help round out the team by providing a liaison between the practitioners, furthering the patient-centered care offered at HealthQuarters. Kristen has worked in a few small clinics; one-on-one and in group settings with patients, both through dry land rehabilitation as well in a warm pool as an aquatic therapist. With two degrees, Honours Kinesiology and Honours Health Studies with specialties in Policy and Management, Kristen has grown from a Kinesiologist to adding Clinic Manager to her role within HealthQuarters. As a member of the OKA (Ontario Kinesiology Association) she continues to educate herself and has gained certificates such as Mobility Taping. When she is not at the clinic Kristen enjoys spending time outside whether swimming, gardening or hiking with her dog. Something Kristen enjoys most about working at HealthQuarters is the contact she is able to have with the HealthQuarters community and the diversity within it that flexes her understanding of anatomy, physiology, injury and recovery.
