This September we welcomed two new Council members, Pheing Ngo and Alyssa King, and re-elected Council member, Susan Garfat, to Council. We’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate and introduce them to all of our members.

His extensive professional journey includes work and consultancy in clinical and home-based fitness and rehabilitation settings.

Mr. Ngo’s also has extensive experience in leadership and governance, which will bring a diverse and valuable perspective to Council.

Alyssa King – District 6

Mrs. King is a registered kinesiologist with clinical experience in musculoskeletal, neurological and pulmonary rehabilitation. She has her undergraduate degree in human kinetics and a postgraduate diploma in neurological rehabilitation. She has participated in statutory committees in the past, most actively with the Registration Committee. Participating in these committees has familiarized Mrs. King with legislation, by-laws, policies and decision-making processes that ultimately contribute to public protection.

With Mrs. King’s unique professional background, governance experience and knowledge, she looks forward to working with Council to ensure Ontarians receive the best care from their kinesiologist.

Ms. Garfat was re-elected to Council for another three-year term. We look forward to working with her and the rest of Council to strengthen the Kinesiology profession in Ontario.
