Margaret is an energetic and animated person who loves to play and laughs at almost any joke (even dad jokes). Her passion to pursue paediatrics first started while she was completing her undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sciences concentrating in Active Health and Rehabilitation Kinesiology. During this time, Margaret spent many years working with the Canucks Autism Network where she motivated children with ASD to participate in active and social programs such as swim, basketball, soccer, skating, music and games nights. Additionally, she provided one on one behavioural intervention therapy to other children with special abilities taking kiddos out to the park or the swimming pool.
Margaret completed her Doctor of Physiotherapy Degree at Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia. It was during her paediatric placement where she provided therapy in rural orphanages and charity clinics in Da Nang, Vietnam when she was certain that she wanted to continue to help children and their families be able to achieve their goals and help them find an optimal way to live their best life. Margaret values carefully conducted assessments, thorough education to the children and families, and playfulness during therapy. On her days off, you can find her doing a number of physical and creative activities such as playing beach volleyball, swimming, running, hiking, baking, cooking, sewing, and eating.
