Kayley Schnare
Alberta Student Coordinator

Kayley Schnare is taking on the role of one of a Student Coordinator for the NPAA. She is a second-year Physiotherapist / Occupational Therapist Assistant student at the Medicine Hat College in Medicine Hat, Alberta. As many others who enter the healthcare field, she had chosen to enter the program because of an interest in getting to help others positively change their lives. As Kayley has gone through her schooling, she had developed a love and interest in anatomy and exercise science. It has helped her to focus her scope onto the Physiotherapy side of the field. If you have any questions about the NPAA and CPA, or are interested in getting involved by writing a piece for the NPAA E-Blast, please contact Kayley to get more information.

Amanda Hackim
Ontario Student Coordinator

Amanda Hackim is currently serving as a Student Coordinator for the NPAA. She graduated from the Occupational Therapist Assistant and Physiotherapist Assistant program from Durham College in June 2019. Within the two year program, she has been on four placements at retirement homes and clinics, working with elderly people, adults, and children. Amanda chose to enter the OTA/PTA program because her goal has always been to work with athletes and in the health care field to help indiciduals improve their overall well-being, function, and mobility, as well as reach their goal in therapy. She decided to become a member of the NPAA to advocate for PTAs, get involved nationally, and develop and expand herself within the profession.
