HSDS Team welcomes a new student!

We welcome Tamsin Forbes, a kinesiology student collaborating with the Fredericton Family Resource Centre and also part-time on a small project with Healthy Start until the end of March.

Originally from a small town in northern Alberta, Tamsin moved to Fredericton to pursue a degree at the University of New Brunswick in Recreation and Sport Studies with a focus on Wellness, within the faculty of Kinesiology. She has had a lifelong love of sports and recreation and has had the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of different activities. She keeps involved in the sport world here in New Brunswick by coaching a youth girls’ developmental basketball team, aged 9 – 11 years old, and in the past has also coached the co-ed 5 – 6 year old team. Moving forward with her career, Tamsin would like to continue to work in health promotion and community development roles, with a focus of encouraging physical activity amongst families.

Every daycare should get Healthy Start training. My staff said that they all benefitted from the training and could apply what they learned right away. The training delivery was engaging and motivating. It was one of the best workshops they have attended!
