Lizz De Jong
Lizz grew up on a farm in Southwestern Ontario. Since she was young, she always had a passion for all things sports, fitness and health and wellness. She completed the three-year Massage Therapy program at Humber College. In those three years, Lizz had internships all over Toronto, Ontario working with gymnasts, individuals on the spectrum, pre and post-natal, babies, palliative care patients and addiction rehab patients. After this Lizz then decided to continue her education by also completing the Physiotherapy / Occupational therapy assistant program. After five years of schooling, she started working at a rehab clinic for two years, executing rehabilitation programs for motor vehicle accident patients, pre/post surgery, repetitive strain injuries, as well as pre and post-natal.
Lizz is all about adventure and change, resulting in moving to Calgary, Alberta and bringing her rehabilitation knowledge to Shifra. She has a background working with expecting mothers and babies, and with both her Massage Therapy and PTA/OTA diplomas she brings a diverse skill set to the table. She is looking forward to building new relationships with the Shifra tribe and the Cochrane community.
