While living in Vancouver she worked with the National Field Hockey teams, at Crossfit Regionals, BMO and Sun Run marathons and other sporting events in the Vancouver area. She was also able take part in a study looking at the incident of concussions in the UBC varsity mens and women's hockey teams.
