Amara graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics and a Minor in Psychology. She enjoys working in individual and small group settings and specializes in lower limb injuries as well as cognitive disabilities. Her passion is fuelled by her background as an active athlete throughout high school and college, where a series of injuries inspired her to pursue a degree in Kinesiology to better understand the science behind the human movement. She enjoys breaking down fundamental movement patterns and developing functionally appropriate exercises to improve activities of daily living.
While in University, she completed a practicum at Kelowna General Hospital, where she worked alongside a Physiotherapist and Respiratory Therapist in developing exercise programs for people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. This furthered her passion for rehabilitation, conditioning, and maintenance of chronic diseases. Her volunteer and mentorship work with the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Vancouver General Hospital and UBC’s School of Kinesiology is another passion of hers that she has a high level of care and respect for.
In her spare time, Amara loves being outdoors and enjoys hiking, kayaking, and yoga.
