Cassy has a strong interest in lifelong continuing education and exercise-based rehabilitation. Cassy first realized this when she started her post-secondary education locally at Sir Sandford Fleming College in the Advanced Diploma in Registered Massage Therapy program. Throughout Cassy’s 5 years’ experience as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) she developed skills in manual soft tissue release using techniques such as active release therapy and exercise prescription.
After achieving her diploma and becoming an RMT in 2013 with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, Cassy continued her education at Brock University in the Kinesiology program. In 2017 Cassy graduated from Brock university with a Bachelors in Kinesiology with Honours. While attending Brock university, Cassy had special interests in exercise with neurological and cardiorespiratory populations. Cassy worked as a student personal trainer in the Heart Strong and Power Cord programs training individuals with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, amputations and stroke.
Cassy continued her education at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia to achieve a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy in 2019. While attending Dalhousie University, Cassy completed placements in outpatient and inpatient settings. Cassy’s physiotherapy approach is through a combination of client education, manual therapy techniques and progressive exercise prescription. Cassy looks forward to starting her career at Trent Health in Motion and continuing her education and learning new skills by taking courses in the areas of pelvic floor health, concussion management, Kinesio taping and osteoarthritis management.
Cassy’s personal physical activity interests currently are in cycling in Full Tilt cycling classes, mountain biking at Harold Town Conservation Area and trying different exercise classes such as yoga and high intensity interval training.
