Jason Thorpe | Halifax Clinic
Originally from Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Jason Thorpe was actively involved in sports while growing up and spent many years playing competitive hockey and rugby. In addition, he has a keen interest working and volunteering with sick children. At a young age he was diagnosed with leukemia and has been an ambassador to children undergoing treatment. With a keen interest in fitness and children’s health he began volunteering and organizing fundraisers for organizations such as the IWK, Ronald McDonald House and Children’s Wish Foundation. His life experience gave him the inspiration to pursue a career aimed towards helping others.
Jason graduated with a Bachelors in Human Kinetics in 2015 from St. Francis Xavier University. His program stressed leadership in and out of the classroom. His class schedule was rigorous and had service learning placements interacting with children, young adults and seniors. During the summer Jason spent a great deal of time volunteering with various clinicians in the clinical, hospital and senior home setting focusing on physiotherapy. This experience provided Jason with a background working with a wide range of patients and clients from elite athletes to persons with physical and mental disabilities.
In his spare time, Jason enjoys continuing to volunteer, working part-time in down town Halifax and spending time with friends and family.
