It brings me great pleasure to be part of the 1,000 Years of ParaSport Advisory Team. I’m the Founder and Executive Director of Flex for Access, and partner with ParaSport Ontario. I am passionate about physical literacy, fitness fundamentals and sport and helping others understand how engaging in opportunities is life-changing.
ParaSport® Role: 1000 Years of ParaSport®
Areas of Expertise: Adaptive Fitness. Mental Performance. Mindfulness
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
