ActiveNorth Would Like to Welcome Our New Chiropractor- Cassie Leigh!
Cassandra (a.k.a. - Cassie) has lived in the Coldwater/Oro-Medonte area for her whole life. While she has been involved in many different sports/teams throughout the years, her main focus was on competitive wrestling. Cassie was a member of the Canadian National team in 2009 competing at the Victory Cup in Turkey and the Pan American Championships in Nicaragua, placing 3rd and 2nd respectively. Her athletic background, injuries and associated therapy, peaked an interest in the human body. After graduating high in Orillia, Cassie received an athletic scholarship to attend Western University in London, ON. Here, she competed as a member of the varsity wrestling team for two years while studying Kinesiology. In her third year and after a history of injuries, Cassie decided to focus on her studies and future career in chiropractic instead of competitive sport. She graduated from Western in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts, Major in Kinesiology Degree in just three years. Upon graduation, Cassie pursued a 4-year Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. In June of 2018, she officially became a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC). Cassie plans to continue to self-educate herself with post-graduate courses, starting with an acupuncture course in winter of 2018.
Cassie’s athletic history and the unfortunate injuries that go along with it, and her current interest in recreational sports and active living give her a unique perspective into injuries and the associated healing processes that she is looking forward to sharing with everyone. While she misses the competitiveness of higher level sport from time to time, she feels she made the right choice and is excited to start her chiropractic career with ActiveNorth!
