Jasmin Ma – Kinesiology

  1. What is your current employer and position title

PhD Candidate with Dr. Kathleen Martin Ginis at UBC Okanagan.

  1. What else have you been doing professionally since you left SKHS?

My research centers around bringing evidence into practice through an integrated knowledge translation approach. Specifically, working with physiotherapists and people with spinal cord injury to develop training to give physiotherapists the tools to ensure an easy transition to an active lifestyle in the community for their clients with spinal cord injury.

  1. What is your favourite memory of being a student at SKHS and Queen’s?

Too many to count. Overall, the family you come away with is the most memorable experience of being a part of the SKHS. Having continued my education at two other universities, it is evident that the Queen’s community is unparalleled.   

  1. What is the most important thing you learned while a student at SKHS and Queen’s that has helped you get to where you are today?

Stay connected, which is easy to do with the PHE/KIN family.

  1. What would you say to a prospective student about studying in SKHS and Queen’s?

Take advantage of the amazing extracurriculars the program has to offer (e.g. Revved Up, Winter Adapted Games, Kin Games, BEWICS, strength and conditioning/ athletic therapy mini-stream, Exercise Is Medicine, research internships, etc.). You’ll benefit not only socially but have a well-rounded history of experiences to carry forward to your next step.
