Nikita - Grand Falls, NB
I’ve been working at PhysioFirst as a physiotherapy assistant for the last two years. I graduated from PTA in 2016. I have been inspired by health care through my employment here at PhysioFirst and I have decided to pursue future studies in Massage Therapy. I am currently in Dieppe taking my classes at the College Atlantique de Massage Therapeutique and will be coming back to work at the beautiful clinic and as a team member of PhysioFirst as a registered massage therapist upon my certification. I want to continue to have some time working as an assistant as well as I’ve truly enjoyed my role the past few years and the clinic has been able to accommodate this vision. Being given a chance to participate in this team has made me realize and learn so much not only about myself, but what I want for my future. Making a difference in patients’ lives is part of what makes my day. Putting smile on someone, even in their worst of time periods in their life, can be so rewarding.
I’m a person who loves to put time in for others and make them feel like they are my sole and only focus. you’ll probably notice that I always have a smile on and am very energized and a sociable person.
Outside of work, I also have a personal life ;). A few pastimes include snowmobiling with my family, going four-wheeling and spending most of my time outdoors in the woods soaking up nature. I also really enjoy being surrounded by my friends as we always seem have a blast!
Come see us at PhysioFirst…You may just love it here!
