Program: Master of Physical Therapy – North

What attracted you to your field?

I decided to pursue physical therapy because I strongly believe in the benefits of physical activity and have always had a passion for helping others. My interests and past experiences led me toward a profession that aligned with my values.

What is one piece of advice you have for students entering your program?

The program is a great opportunity to connect with other physiotherapists. Do not be afraid to build a strong professional network!

What is next for you?

After completing the UBC MPT-North program, I accepted a primary care physiotherapist position in my hometown of Chetwynd, B.C. My first few weeks involved orientation in Prince George prior to returning home to practice. I am excited to be the first public physiotherapist in Chetwynd and look forward to the opportunity!
