  • Most embarrassing moment: In grade 6 I took my gym shorts out the dryer early, slightly damp and put them in the front pocket of my backpack and forgot them. One day, I didn’t have gym shorts but found the shorts in my backpack. They had dried in my backpack and smelled really disgusting. I didn’t want to wear them but would lose marks for not having gym strip. I put the stinky shorts on anyway and everyone in the girls changeroom immediately complained of the smell. It didn’t get better for me in an open space once I came out into the gym. The smell was so bad, the teachers emptied out the gym and we had gym class out that day. I pretended I was just as confused and grossed out by this mysterious smell. The school got the janitors to inspect the gym and change rooms and could not figure out what the awful smell was. I got through class without losing any marks or admitting to causing the smell that disrupted three different gym classes. I did get rid of those shorts and never repeated the mistake of putting wet clothes in my backpack

… I hope you continue changing lifes…

…Susannah is empathetic and knowledgeable, and just talking to her during physio is therapy enough because she really listens. In the 6 months that I have been working with her since the global pandemic through both telehealth and in-person, she has been nothing but kind and helpful. Whenever my ribs are having issues, neck or spine her hardworking hands always know how to heal and give comfort to me. I honestly cannot say enough good things. At one point in time, I had hated coming into physio because it felt like no matter how hard I tried, I’d be stuck with my concussion and neck injuries, but with her exercises and positive attitude I was able to continue progressing and found hope again. Thank you again Susannah! I hope you continue changing lives, you are one of the strongest, inspirational people I know…
