FIRST LINE FOUNDER
Angela has been a practicing kin and business owner for over 30 years. Since starting First Line in 2007, she’s taught over 2500 students, movement therapists, and budding entrepreneurs through First LIne’s online courses, her academic teaching and her thriving Facebook communities.
Mentorship and advocacy are cornerstones of Angela’s business. She wants to help new movement therapists shine as they start and grow their practices. Raising the profile of kinesiology is also important to her. As Angela sees it, it’s really a win-win situation: by providing support and direction to new movement therapists, the profile of the kinesiology profession will expand and grow organically.
During her two year term as President of the Ontario Kinesiology Association Angela helped Kinesiology become regulated as a health care profession under the Regulated Health Care Professions Act. For over a decade Angela worked as a member of their Board of Directors in a variety of roles, including Director of Communications and Education.
