Emily

Health & Safety Representative

Emily is a graduate of the Personal Support Worker program. Emily knew she had a passion for working with people since a very young age. Growing up she would often volunteer at the nursing home her Mother worked at. At age 14 she started working as a student in a long term care facility. With only having worked in the social service field, she applied to the PSW program. During which time she did a placement at a group home and fell in love with the rewarding work. She enjoys developing valuable, trusting relationships and learning new things from each person she meets along the way. Emily comes to Adults In Motion with experience as Direct Support Worker in group homes as well as a Day Program. She has gained valuable experience working in long term care as well as retirement homes. Emily is excited to be a part of the AIM team and continuously uses her passion and positivity to bring light and build connections with our AIMazing participants.

Breanne is coming to Adults in Motion with a passion to help others reach their full potential and have a ton of fun while doing so. She completed her Undergrad Degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education while also receiving a Minor in Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University. When she was introduced to the field of Recreation and Leisure she knew that she wanted to enter a professional career that focused on fostering genuine connections, building confidence in one’s abilities and making a difference in the lives of those around her. She obtained her diploma in Recreation Therapy and has been gaining experience in the field by working with adults and seniors with exceptionalities.

Breanne prides herself on facilitating meaningful programs that are delivered in a safe manner with an emphasis on inclusion, respect and FUN.
