At Aim2Walk we pride ourselves in having the newest and most outstanding technology for neurological rehabilitation. We work as a collaborative team of various health care practitioners who strive to provide quality care and who are committed to continue learning to achieve top quality physical therapy for our clients.
The Herta Leyss Award belongs to “the student in the graduating year most likely to fulfill the role of an academic practitioner based on consistent distinction in clinical and research practice.” This award was given to our newest member of the Aim2Walk Team, Megan Covert, PT, when she graduated from the University of Toronto in 2013.
For the past 3 months, Megan has been waiting patiently (or maybe not so patiently) for her board exam results for Physiotherapy. I am so happy to share that she has successfully passed her exams and is officially a Registered Physiotherapist! Megan graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from McMaster University. She then decided to further her education and study at the University of Toronto where she recently graduated with a Masters in Physical Therapy. Her passion for knowledge continued and she has completed various courses including: Lumbopelvic manipulation, soft tissue release, supported conversation for adults with aphasia and basic taping for orthopedic injuries. Megan will be starting a contemporary acupuncture course in February and she plans on taking a Bobath certification at the end of the year, which will expand her knowledge of different assessment and treatment approaches used in the rehabilitation of neurological populations.
We are thrilled and honoured to have Megan officially join our team at Aim2Walk! It has been a pleasure the past 6 months getting to know her bubbly, energetic and confident personality. We look forward to continuing to work with her and learning from each other to achieve the best possible therapy for our clients. Congratulations and cheers to Megan!
