Clinic – Currie Center (UNB)
Anna is an exercise enthusiast, an academic, worldwide traveler, and a leader with a resilient mindset. Her defining quality is her persistent hard work which has defined the achievements that she has accomplished to date.
Born and raised in Fredericton, Anna graduated top of her class among in the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology program from the University of New Brunswick in 2018. After graduation Anna worked as the lead research coordinator for the Cardiometabolic Exercise and Lifestyle Laboratory (CELLab) at UNB to implement an older adult fall prevention exercise program in New Brunswick. The following year she returned to Australia, where she had previously completed a UNB Study Abroad term in 2017 in Melbourne, to work as a personal trainer in three different gyms.
During Anna’s travels, her passion to collaboratively help individuals live a healthy and active lifestyle became clear, so she decided to further her education and study to become a physiotherapist. She completed her Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University in 2022.
Anna strongly believes in empowering her clients to take ownership of their health and fitness. She works with clients to create an individualized plan to achieve their goals and to prevent illness, disease, and/or disability. For clients who are currently experiencing acute or chronic conditions, Anna is passionate about working them to create a proper rehabilitation plan.
Anna has extensive experience working with the aging population through her previous employment, volunteerism, and physio placements, and absolutely loves to work with individuals to help combat the challenges that often present with aging. She is a firm believer that one’s age does not define their functional ability and that many of the risk factors for chronic conditions are, in fact, modifiable.
Outside of the clinic, you can guarantee Anna is exercising — whether in the gym lifting weights, running outside, attending yoga classes with her friends, or leading a HIIT class at Sweat Club. Anna is a huge animal lover and loves travelling the world with family and friends.
