Mo grew up in Toronto and spent many of her summers at a camp in Muskoka, where she quickly developed a love for tapping into kids’ incredible imaginations to create fun, silly, and creative programming. Growing up, Mo played water polo at a national and international level, and went on to play varsity at Queen’s University. Having had many sport-related injuries herself, Mo understands first-hand the frustrations and pressures associated with an athlete’s rehab journey and successfully returning to their sport.
During her undergraduate degree, Mo completed a specialization in Exercise and Disability which sparked her passion for treating people with mobility and intellectual impairments. Since then she has been involved with multiple Special Olympics Canada initiatives, adapted swimming programs, and was both a volunteer and a student intern at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. Mo is passionate about disability advocacy and continues to be involved with the Critical Disability and Rehabilitation Studies lab at the University of Toronto.
Mo is a strong believer in working together to set goals that are meaningful to each child and their family. She is dedicated to including everyone during therapy sessions, while of course, having so much fun! Outside of the clinic, Mo takes every chance she can to get out of the city and go camping. She also loves to run and try out new vegetarian recipes.
