Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?

I wanted to specialize within the rehabilitation sciences field to better inform myself of current research and prepare myself for the field after graduation.

Why did you decide to study at UBC?

I decided to attend UBC as it aligned with my educational/personal values and offered opportunities to work alongside world-class researchers. The MSc RHSC program had an excellent reputation and offered the opportunity to specialize in exercise oncology.

What is it specifically, that your program offers, that attracted you?

The RHSC program offered me the opportunity to work alongside my supervisor Dr. Kristin Campbell. My time spent in the lab has allowed me to further develop my knowledge set, as well as explore future directions within exercise oncology.

What was the best surprise about UBC or life in Vancouver?

The best surprise was the west coast lifestyle. Having the forest and mountains in your backyard has been so amazing! Hiking, skiing, camping, climbing - Vancouver has it all!

What aspects of your life or career before now have best prepared you for your UBC graduate program?

Prior to attending UBC, I had ample experience working in the rehabilitation field. This experience not only helped me learn how to build patient rapport but also network and further expand upon my knowledge and interests within the field. I think it is important to get out and volunteer in order to learn what areas of the field are best suited for you!

What do you like to do for fun or relaxation?

When I'm not in the lab, I can be found hiking, camping, trail running, or biking on the trail systems around Vancouver!

What advice do you have for new graduate students?

My advice to new graduate students is to ensure you take time to explore and enjoy this wonderful city. I know it is easy to get caught up in the responsibilities that come with research; however, I believe that with effective time management skills you can have it all!
