Physical Therapy Month #PTMonth

In honour of #PTMonth, we asked students, staff and faculty, what PT means to them and why they chose to pursue the profession. 

Kendall, MSc Physical Therapy Student

Kendall’s passion for health, exercise and helping others inspired her to pursue her master's in physical therapy. Now she’s sharing that passion and helping people become the best version of themselves!

Geoff Bostick, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy

PT means a collaborative approach to supporting the movement, function, and quality of life for people living with pain or have varying levels of ability.

For PT professor Geoff Bostick, this means being an ally to people struggling to meet valued life activities.



Judy Chepeha, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy

Whether practicing clinically or teaching students, PT professor Judy Chepeha feels the best part about the profession is sharing in the success and joy of others as they find their way.



Catherine McLellan, MSc Physical Therapy Student

Inspired by how PT helped her grandfather’s mobility issues, Catherine chose a career in physical therapy so she could help give that freedom to others.



Curtis McLaughlin, MSc Physical Therapy Student

Every day in PT is a new challenge with lots of problem-solving and constant learning. For Curtis, one of our amazing MScPT students, this is one of the most rewarding aspects of the profession.



Muriah Cardin, MSc Physical Therapy Student

Muriah loves inspiring people to become more active. Through her studies in the PT program, she gets to help people empower themselves through physical activity.



Mark Hall, Associate Chair of Physical Therapy

For Mark, being a PT means helping optimize function to enable people to live their best life.

This includes helping people with managing shoulder pain so they can lift up their grandchild, developing strategies to manage back pain so they can garden, or helping with their breathing so they can walk in a mall.
