Nick holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Dalhousie University. A keen interest in research led him to complete an honours thesis in exercise physiology, investigating the effectiveness of glutamine as a sports nutrition supplement. Nick presented his research at the Atlantic Provinces Exercise Scientists conference at the University of New Brunswick in March 2013, where he was awarded the inaugural Dr. Gordon Sleivert Prize for best undergraduate research presentation.
Following graduation, Nick obtained his certification as a strength and conditioning specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. In September of 2014, he returned to Dalhousie to complete his Master in Physiotherapy. Nick’s performance during the program earned him an award from the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association for recognition of a consistently high skill level in the academic and clinical components of musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Nick intends to pursue post-graduate certifications in dry needling and advanced manual therapy to compliment his existing physiotherapy education.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Nick developed a passion for exploring the outdoors through hiking, camping, fishing, and surfing. He loves to travel to find deep backcountry powder for skiing, or warm weather and waves to surf. Like a true Canadian, his hobbies also include playing hockey. Aside from hobbies and staying active, Nick values spending quality time with family and friends.
