I have always been an active person, in love with sports and physical activity. My mom was an X-ray tech and she always stressed to me that there was nothing more exciting and fulfilling then working in a hospital. When I was in Grade 9, my best friend was diagnosed with bone cancer. She spent a lot of time in hospital and actually had to have part of her humerus removed. I often visited her in hospital and this is what really inspired me to become a physiotherapist.
