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.   

WELCOME to our Co-Op Student!

My name is Massimo Brasca. I am a co-op student at Port Credit Secondary School. I have started my placement at Clarkson Sports & Physiotherapy and so far I love it. I have chosen this placement because I’ve always been interested in sports and Kinesiology and hope to be a Physiotherapist in the Canadian Armed Forces. My reasons for being in the Armed Forces is because it ensures that I stay active and develop important skills such as discipline. There are also many jobs for veterans.
Throughout my life I’ve been involved with sports and athletics such as football, soccer, swimming, fencing, cross country, track and field and bodybuilding. My love for physical activity has transformed into an interest of how the body works. Physiotherapy would be a great field for me because I also love helping people and teaching.
