Title: Director of Sporting Events
I’m very excited to be the new Director of Sporting Events for IMSSA this year! I’m a first year Master’s of Science student working at St. Michael’s Hospital under the supervisor of Dr. Schweizer and I am a part of the Collaborative Program in Neuroscience. My research focus is on sex differences in sport-related concussion outcomes analyzed by neuroimaging. As a former professional athlete, I’ve always remained active throughout my academic career and love participating in both competitive and recreational athletic/health-forward events. I want to encourage graduate students to put their mental and physical health first by being proactive with scheduling time for daily active health breaks to stimulate both their minds and bodies. I hope to see you all at our sporting events this year!
