Amy was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. She travelled the world competing as an alpine ski racer with the Ontario Ski Team until she was granted a scholarship to an NCAA DI school. It was at Montana State University where she not only received her Bachelor of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy, but became exposed to the PA profession. Amy completed her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies at the University of Manitoba in 2014. While at the U of M, Amy acted as the CAPA Board of Directors student representative for the U of M.
Amy is now entering her third year practicing as an emergency physician assistant at Seven Oaks General Hospital in Winnipeg, MB. She also very much remains connected with her alma mater by helping to teach some emergency medicine/critical care and patient assessment lectures, assess students during their clinical examinations, and by acting as a mentor to PA students.
Amy is also currently volunteering for the Seven Oaks Foundation Young Professionals Advisory Committee and the CAPA Conference planning committee. Amy is a huge proponent for the PA profession in Canada as can be seen by her media interviews and social media involvement. She has a desire to help make the PA profession advance and flourish across Canada.
