Renée Lawson is a 2nd Year Honours Kinesiology and Psychology student currently attending Wilfrid Laurier University. She is very passionate about the arts and physical activity, as she has been training as a dancer for 16 years. Her major career goals are to become a highly skilled physiotherapist and potentially open her own clinic for paediatric rehabilitation to help children with physical disabilities and injuries. Renée was one of the recipients of the Menich Award, which allowed her to partner up with HopeSpring for her first co-op term. She was tasked with creating educational and meaningful programming to help members learn more about health and physical activity, as well as how to build important muscles that may have been lost during chemotherapy treatments. Renée hopes to foster new and valuable connections with HopeSpring's members as she leads them through their personalized programming, which will help her learn and expand on creative ways to provide the best possible care for her patients in the future.
