ROBERT RUSSELL

Background

My name is Robert but most people know me as Bobby. I came to physiotherapy later in life...and was named the mostly likely to receive more physiotherapy than provide. I have always been interested in leading a healthy active lifestyle and have been active in sports and fitness most of my life. I continue to play hockey throughout the year. Prior to becoming a Physiotherapist, I completed a degree in Kinesiology from Dalhousie University in 2001. After that, I spent some time working as a Kinesiologist in a multidisciplinary clinic and then as an orthopedic bracing specialist. I then moved on to a civilian position with the Canadian Forces where I worked in Fitness and Sports at CFB Halifax, 12 Wing Shearwater and 5 Wing Goose Bay. I started at the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie in 2012 at the age of 36. Since graduating in 2014, I have worked in both private and public practice and am currently employed with NSHA in the orthopedic assessment clinic in Kentville.

Why do you want to join/continue as a director on the board?

I would like to participate on the Board of Directors of the NSCP as a way to give back to the profession and hopefully help to promote and advance the profession.

What do you bring (or have brought) to the position?

I bring a variety of life experience, and open mind, and a strong work ethic, along with a desire to contribute to the advancement of the profession.
