Speaker Bio:  Cindy – I’ve worked as a physiotherapist since graduating from University of Alberta in 1994.  My career path has taken me to many interesting places – 5 years working locums in various states in the US; 1.5 years working in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; volunteer work in India; and finally landing in Calgary.  This will be my 20th year with AHS, the majority of which has been in home care.  I love seeing people in their own environment and focusing on care and treatment that allows them to maintain their independence and safety.  I love to travel and often combine it with cycling.
