Jade was born and grew up in Seoul, South Korea and moved to St. John’s in 2013. She studied physical education in South Korea and participated in many activities: vice president of the student association in the physical education department, a member of the tennis club, and volunteering in community recreation.
Jade also assisted an anatomy and sports physiology instructor during her second year since she was fascinated with sports medicine. Jade was a sprinter for seven years and worked in elementary school as a track and field coach while she was in the university. She worked as a personal trainer and taught PE in kindergarten for many years.
Over the years Jade suffered from many injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents and sports activities as well as TMJ and low back issues. These injuries made it difficult to continue to work in the field of sports medicine. After moving to St. John’s Jade worked in early childhood education for 5 years. The physically demanding nature of the job affected her injuries and they flared up again. So she began looking for a solution and that’s when she met our lead Physiotherapist Estelle. Jade was impressed by both laser therapy and body alignment treatment. She also was inspired by Estelle and found her passion for sports medicine still existed after 20 years. Jade decided to go back to school, and she is currently studying kinesiology at Memorial University.
Jade has completed a laser technician certification course in 2019 and is working as a laser technician in our clinic. Her education and her personal experiences provide her with the tools to help her clients overcome their pain. She plans to complete certification to become a posture alignment specialist and advanced laser courses.
