Welcome to Mary, our University of Waterloo Co-Op Student!

I believe that one of the most rewarding joys of life is being able to move freely and enjoy the activities you love, and this has led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. I am currently a second year co-op student who has the pleasure to be here for the next few months! Previously, I also attended high school at King’s Christian Collegiate in Oakville. 

My personal experience with physiotherapy and my passion for fitness has inspired me to seek a career in healthcare and rehabilitation sciences. I am excited to learn more about various kinds of physical therapy, and I look forward to assisting the team in providing quality care for you throughout your health journey. 

In my spare time, I love to cook and spend time with my friends, as well as move my body in any way possible, be it going for walks, strength training, or stretching.

Introducing Betty!

Hi, my name is Betty Da Silva and I am a grade 11 co-op student from Port Credit Secondary School. I have had an incredible opportunity to be able to do my co-op placement at Clarkson Sports and Physiotherapy and to be able to work in an environment that is so welcoming and friendly, thanks to all of the staff.

I have always been interested in going into medicine, specifically nursing, and not only has this experience shown me more options that I have but it has also allowed me to gain and improve the skills I need for nursing such as communication, initiative, and being more observant.

I have also been lucky enough to see some of the stuff that is involved in running a small business. Being able to watch the health practitioners help the patients get the care they need and knowing that they feel pain relief from doing simple exercises, stretches, and treatments is very rewarding.
