Megan’s connection to the PACE program began with in 2007, while completing her B.Sc. in Kinesiology. Her participation in the MacWheelers program as a volunteer, and eventually as an employee, influenced her desire to become a physiotherapist. After graduating from McMaster, she worked as Assistant Coordinator for both the McMaster Cardiac Rehabilitation Program and the MacSeniors Exercise and Wellness Program. She later graduated from the University of Toronto with her Masters in Physical Therapy.
Megan currently works in Toronto at a private clinic specializing in neurological rehabilitation (including spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and stroke). She has studied Bobath Therapy and has completed certifications in contemporary medical acupuncture, scalp acupuncture and neurokinetic therapy.
The MacWheelers Program has always had a special place in Megan’s heart and she feels privileged to play a more active role in its continued development. She has always valued its ability to provide a sense of connection to the community, a source of peer support and the well documented functional and psychological improvements associated with exercise in neurological populations. After working with this resilient and inspiring group of people for the past 8 years, it is clear that no two injuries are the same. Every participant deserves a training program that is specialized and adapted to his or her specific needs. Megan feels passionate about ensuring that individual goal attainment is at the forefront of program development.
