This November, Jacob will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of Alberta with the goal of pursuing a career in physiotherapy. He is our very first practicum student and will be learning from our team from May to August in order to complete his degree.
Growing up, Jacob played competitive soccer, and school sports like basketball. His love for sports has influenced his decision to pursue physiotherapy, as he has dedicated himself to learning about rehabilitation medicine and sports performance.
Jacob has experience working with individuals with physical disabilities through the Steadward Centre at the University of Alberta, as well as experience as a volunteer at our clinic, providing him with a foundation that allows him to aid in client rehabilitation and exercise.
Outside of university, Jacob can be found playing soccer and hitting the gym, while playing recreation basketball in his free time.
