Grey Bay: After 30 years as a practicing Physiotherapist (FCAMT, Dip Sports), I have learned that I have a lot to learn. Along the way I have I had the opportunity to be mentored and connect with many great minds and characters who have helped me get to where I am today. I enjoy helping people be the best they can be, I love to get up and go to work as every day is different and meaningful. I love to dream and think how I can make things better even if they have not been done before. I am proud to be the creator of Coreshorts and to have helped opened the door for other Physio inventors to take the next step. I am currently the BC Physiotherapy Lead for CBI Health where I can continue to open the minds of our future. I am excited to share my story on how I got started creating, what I did or would do differently and where we go from here. Oct 26, 2017 Topic: Coreshorts – a Physio Invention. 




Katelyn Proctor graduated from the University of British Columbia with her Masters in Physical Therapy in 2013. During her time in school, she learned that she loved to teach. After graduating, she paired her love for physiotherapy with her passion for teaching and started PT Exam Prep Inc. In addition to being a clinical lead at a private orthopedic clinic in South Surrey, she has built a world-wide education program for students preparing for both the written and practical portions of the Canadian Physiotherapy licensing exam. Katelyn believes that you don’t have to have a lot of money or a complicated business plan to start something. As a physiotherapist you already have a skill set, all you need to do is pair it with a passion and take a chance! Oct 26, 2017 Topic: How to run a non-clinic physiotherapy business.
