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.
