She is a recent new employee with Canada Post and received her Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Calgary and her Masters degree in Public Health from the University of Alberta. Her winning submission focused on a musculoskeletal prevention and awareness program she created that produced a significant reduction in injuries.
