Jamie Magpantay is the newest co-op student from Simon Fraser University. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an Active Health and Rehabilitation concentration.
Jamie was involved with a variety of sports growing up, being a part of various basketball, volleyball, and ultimate teams. Her favourite teams to be a part of were the Burnaby/New Westminster regional basketball team and her current VUL ultimate team. Jamie is always looking for new sports to take part in and nowadays you can find her at the gym weight training or doing yoga and pilates.
Jamie has her Canfit Pro Personal Training Certification and has had previous experience teaching exercises and stretches at different establishments. She believes in the importance of activity especially within the older population, volunteering at her local care home encouraging the residents to go on walks or inviting them to the exercise room.
Jamie hopes to one day become a physiotherapist or a chiropractor (she is still undecided). But she is very excited there are plenty of role models for her to look up to here at Moveo!
