My name is Anita Barrios. I graduated from Brock University with a degree in Kinesiology in 2007. Shortly after graduating I worked as a personal trainer, then started as a kinesiologist at a private clinic in Belleville, Ontario. I worked with a variety of individuals that were injured in the workplace, in motor vehicle accidents, from common repetitive strains, and deconditioned states. After about 3 years I moved to Ottawa where I found work as a kinesiologist/physiotherapy assistant in a couple similar private clinics. A combined 10.5 years working in private clinics lead to needing to learn more as a PTA in a different setting. Working here, at Perley Heatlh, helping individuals increase their mobility, strength, and stamina brings me joy. I have been working here, now, for almost 4 years.
When I am not working, I am spending time with my family. When I find time, I enjoy reading, creating, working out, participating in sports, watching movies, and travelling.
