“My motto is, ‘I work to play.’ I get out of bed each morning because I love outdoor sports—specifically rock climbing and white-water kayaking. I love the sensation of adrenaline pumping through my veins and the end result of feeling healthy in both mind and body.

What is really enjoyable about my job is that I can help instill this philosophy in the people I work with. I want to demonstrate to them that getting out of bed in the morning is about finding your passion in life. I believe recreation therapy is a foundation for recovery and health. When I began the field was not well recognized and I had to advocate for a position in a child and youth mental health program. There are now many recreation therapy positions throughout VCH and this is very exciting. I love what I do because I have witnessed people I work with make positive changes in their lives. It’s about promoting self-confidence through recreational activities.”
